I also have to give my vote to Voice Dream Reader. The students I have shown the product have really liked it and use it instead of the Read2Go app from Bookshare.

+1 for Voice Dream. It sometimes goes on sale for $5. You can add in premium voices for $3-5 each.

Hi Lorraine,

We've been recommending Voice Dream Reader for iOS as a document reader. They also have a product called Voice Dream Writer to help with composing documents but I have not yet downloaded and tested it. http://www.voicedream.com/

I am doing a review of the apps we recommend students to use on iPhone, iPads and androids to read PDf, eBooks and RTF's. We are also looking into note taking apps you are suggesting students to use.

Can anyone recommend some to us that they have found recently that they like.
