Awesome!! - I think this app is very awesome, just what the doctor ordered! The pronunciation is very clear and the setup is very simple and easy to use. Very suitable for me, I hope the creator will improve the app in some way, but for the basic app, it has a good price and a good function.

What did I buy??? HYPED SCAM?? - If I have not mistaken… I just bought a 29.99 text pane that has has two nice looking buttons that connect to what Lion already provides. YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING THIS APP DOES BY WITHOUT THIS APP by… opening "system presences"… "speech"… "text to speech" Then click on "system voice". Under customize… choose the langauge you want your computer to speak. Click OK and wait for the download….. THEN (and this is the part that you don't need this stupid program for) just choose the voice you want from the "speech" window. Then anywhere you highlight on your screen and control click…. start speaking… it will give you the same results. If ACETOOLS was any kind of company at all… they would refund my money or at least only charge the 99 cents this MIGHT be worth!!!!
