VoiceDream is fantastic. It allows users to access Bookshare books for half the cost of the Read2Go app. There are so many customization options for font, color, size, contrast, and highlighting. Foreign voices are available for when someone wants to hear text in a foreign language spoken aloud. Another excellent feature is the in-app web browser which allows website text to be extracted, saved, and accessed. This is great for students who need reduced visual clutter. There is a free demo version available, which allows you to explore the features--it merely stops reading after a few phrases.
