I can’t download voices because of a ‘server error’. How can I fix this?

At times some customers may experience disruptions in the download due to busy server. Please try downloading the voice again or at a later time. If the problem persists, please try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

If you already own the Pro version, please follow these steps to restore:

iOS:

If you first downloaded NaturalReader free and then purchased the in-app upgrade to Pro, please ensure you are signed in as the Apple ID that made the original purchase. Reinstall NaturalReader free, tap “About Pro Version” then tap “Restore”.

If you purchased the NaturalReader Pro app directly, please sign into the Apple ID that made the purchase and navigate to your Apple Store Account information. Search for NaturalReader in the list of purchases, and tap to restore.

Android:

Login using the Google account that made the original purchase and open the Play Store app. Select the Menu icon and choose ‘My apps & games’. Swipe left to view all your apps. Select NaturalReader from the list and tap ‘Install’.

Ensure that you have alternative access to any important files in your Library, as this process will erase your app data. All files will have to be imported again for use. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

I’ve paid for the Pro update, but nothing has changed.

After purchasing the Pro version, the app should unlock automatically. If you are unable to access Pro after upgrading, please uninstall and reinstall the app:

iOS:

If you first downloaded NaturalReader free and then purchased the in-app upgrade to Pro, please ensure you are signed in as the Apple ID that made the original purchase. Reinstall NaturalReader free, tap “About Pro Version” then tap “Restore”. It should then switch to the paid version.

If you purchased the NaturalReader Pro app directly, please sign into the Apple ID that made the purchase and navigate to your Apple Store Account information. Search for NaturalReader in the list of purchases, and tap to restore.

Android:

Login using the Google account that made the original purchase and open the Play Store app. Select the Menu icon and choose ‘My apps & games’. Swipe left to view all your apps. Select NaturalReader from the list and tap ‘Install’. You will not be charged again if you’ve already paid for the app.

Ensure that you have alternative access to any important files in your Library, as this process will erase your app data. All files will have to be imported again for use. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

I’m trying to upload a document, but the app keeps crashing.

Please double-check the file format to ensure it is compatible with NaturalReader. If it is a PDF causing the issue, it is likely because it contains images with inaccessible text. If the PDF is not embedded with accessible text for images, the app cannot access the proper information to read it.

PDFs that are not properly tagged for accessibility cannot be accessed by speech synthesizers since there is no information embedded in the file for the program to properly interpret and read out. Speech synthesizers can only read text and not images that contain text. However our desktop version of the software comes equipped with OCR (optical character recognition), which is capable of importing such types of PDF files.

I’m trying to read a webpage, but it’s not working.

The web browser feature is a built-in browser for easy web viewing. For security reasons, NaturalReader may not be able to access text from online registered accounts, especially those with paid subscriptions. Websites with more complex special encoding also may not be able to function with NaturalReader.

It’s mispronouncing a word. How can I fix this?

The Pronunciation Editor can help fix minor pronunciation issues. To access the PE settings, click ‘More’ in the top right and then ‘Pronunciation Editor’.

You can replace the mispronounced word with the phonetic spelling of how it should read.

Why are the voices spelling out some words instead of reading them?

This issue is most likely caused by the special encoding of the file. Though the words as they appear on the page might look normal, sometimes the hidden encoding of the file itself contains various complicated and hidden encoding that affects the reading of the document. However most files with standard encoding are supported and will be read correctly.

Testimonials

Mary Hardin – Parent

Fleming Island, FL

As a parent of a struggling Middle School student with Dyslexia, reading has always been a challenge. We use Natural Reader software and the MP3 export feature almost daily to help him get through lengthy reading assignments and to help create study material he can listen to on his IPOD. Natural Reader has been instrumental in helping him to excel in school! While reading to learn, he can now focus on learning the material at hand rather than being distracted by his reading challenges. He is now an Honor Roll student who has made tremendous progress since utilizing Natural Reader. We highly recommend Natural Reader for any student who has difficulties with reading.

Bathurst, NSW, Australia

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for developing your natural reader software! Im 23yr old Australian student and I have struggled with dyslexia for as long as I remember and I am currently in my final year of a communications degree.. so you can imagine how frustrating my studies have been! anyway I recently found your software online and it has made my life 5 million times better!!! I can actually get to the end of my readings without bursting a blood vessel due to frustration! And my assignments and grades are actually on the increase!

Svetoslav ChavdarovComputer Science and Engineering Student

Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)

As Computer Science and Engineering student I have to spend most of my time in front of the PC programming or reading slides full of formulas. This makes my eyes totally tired and I simply do not feel like reading afterwards. On the other hand, at the end of the day I long for diversity e.g. by a great novel or some motivational material. With NaturalReader I easily turn inspirational and self-improvement literature into mp3s and listen to them on the long way back home from the university. This helps me keep the balance between professional and soft skills.The multiple voices support is an amazing feature and the German language starts to sound really nice when spoken by Sarah.

Ariel Miranda Teacher

Valdepenas, Ciudad Rea

I no longer strain my eyes trying to read tiny fonts in e-mails or web pages or spend time recording my own voice for teaching purposes. I have a "bilingual" Natural Reader and it has become a very useful tool. By the way, my students haven't noticed that my "friend" Kate, who reads lessons so nicely, is a computer.

Jeannette BennicelliKirby Center for Molecular Ophthalmology

University of Pennsylvania

I purchased Natural Reader for my daughter many years ago. The program is a great aid for children with language-based learning disabilities and helped my daughter immensely in preparing the myriad written assignments that were part of her education in her specialized school. She has now taken the program to college with her where she continues to use it. Recently I purchased a program upgrade which I am sharing with my elderly father who has age-related macular degeneration. He enjoys using his computer and has been struggling with low vision. Natural Reader is allowing him to listen to pages on the internet, alleviating his struggles trying to read from the computer screen with a magnifying glass.

Chi-Hung Luke Hsieh

As an assistive technology advocate for an Independent Living Center for Riverside County California, I think Nature Reader is a wonderful and affordable software for children with learning disability and dyslexia. I have cerebral palsy myself and this software has increased my productivity more than I had imagined. What I like the most about the software is the interface, because of my bad eyesight I had to increase the font, it makes reading more fun and pleasurable

Ayla Duffton,Student/Self Employed

Aberdeenshire, UK.

"I discovered NaturalReader after hearing that it was possible to have text from the computer read aloud to you. I have Aspergers' Syndrome, which is an autistic spectrum learning difficulty. I love to gather information, learn and research things on the internet, with current technology more and more information is digital rather than in a book, I use NaturalReader to read aloud passages from ebooks I have bought, PDF documents, webpages with lots of text, and to read back to me things I have typed to 'hear them'. This helps me greatly as although I am a visual/kinetic learner, words are not pictures. NaturalReader allows me to hear all the text I would otherwise have had to read on the screen, allowing me to create a mental image of what I am hearing, this helps me process and have a better retainment of information. The quality of the voices available, the ability to adjust the speed of speech is brilliant. I have three voices installed on the computer but my favourite by far is 'US - Heather', it is pleasant to listen to and is really easy to understand. Natural Reader helps me to learn and listen to texts of interest without having eyestrain or eye discomfort from reading the words. It is also really nice to have someone read to you, it uses a lot less energy and focus. The ability to copy text from places online and create audio files to listen to on an MP3 player or music player is fantastic, it allows me to go anywhere and do anything instead of sitting in front of a computer screen. The feature that allows you type your own text and have that read to is a great way to check accuracy or how it 'sounds'. All in all I would have to say that NaturalReader is one of the best pieces of software I have ever bought, and stands alone in quality and value for money.

Danita Moses American Public University

Atlanta, Georgia

I am a full-time student taking classes to earn my bachelor's degree in pre-law or as they call it today, “Legal Studies”; I am planning to become a lawyer. I love using this software because it helps me read numerous cases in a matter of hours not days.
This software helps me pronounce words that I cannot and it helps me avoid making grammatical errors when writing my case briefs and my essays. I enjoy the fact that I can convert my online textbooks into MP3’s and listen to them on my smart phone or while driving in my car.
I love this software and I do not know where I would be without it, (Oh yeah, I would be making numerous grammatical errors on my case briefs and essays). Thank you for creating this incredible software, in my opinion; it is the best thing since sliced bread.

NaturalReader has been a transformational and liberating product for me. As someone that suffers from a learning disability, having this product to proof my emails, presentations and contracts, has allowed me to become more independent and not have the burden to rely on someone to proof my work. I now create my document, and have NaturalReader read back the contents of what I wrote, thus it allows me to listen to what I actually wrote, and not what I think I wrote. It has given me additional confidence and generated increased capacity, as I am more secure in my work products and have the ability to get work done faster. There have been a few times since purchasing this product where I had to switch laptops, and for brief periods of time where I did not have access to the product, I was completely lost without the product on my laptop. I really have to say thank you and I cannot express enough the impact this product has had on my life.

Herschel Knapp, Ph.D.

I’ve been using Natural Reader for years; it is invaluable when it comes to proofreading my work. I’ve had multiple papers published in medical journals and I write academic textbooks; on one textbook, Natural Reader enabled me to catch more than 80 typos that eluded copy editors and proofreaders. Thanks to Natural Reader, the typos, which would have distracted the reader who is trying to comprehend a concept, are gone.
Natural Reader also helps with my dyslexia; if I invert, misplace, or leave out a word, it would be difficult for me to visually proofread that, however, when Natural Reader speaks, my typos stand out, and virtually scream for correction.
I also find Natural Reader useful for reading lengthy papers and e-mails. This is among the finest piece of software I own.

I am 72 year-old, a retired Animal Nutritionist and Farm Loan Adviser in the Financial Market. I live in Boise, Idaho.
After comparing to other products, I prefer to read and comprehend materials using NaturalReader for it is the only one that provide the functionality and capability that suits my needs. I have attended the Idaho State University Speech and Language Clinic for 10 consecutive semesters for treatment of expressive aphasia and apraxia following a leftbrain stroke. Auditory comprehension goals have been established to increase functional abilities which are enhanced by independently utilizing Natural Reader to access and promote understanding of selected reading materials through increased complexity of reading material and response tasks.
Further individual and group therapy is recommended to continue this progress. Therapy includes increasing complexity of reading material and auditory comprehension response modes. The use of Natural Reader software has been positive to assist in auditory comprehension, and to further my progress.

Natural Reader software has made a great difference for my work as a freelance translator and editor. Before getting your software, I was always in trouble when trying to cross-check my translation with the original work. Natural Reader allows me to listen and concentrate on the written material and spared me the trouble of reading texts sentence by sentence, which is a very tedious and inefficient way of editing. But now it is different. I am at ease in detecting and correcting inaccuracies, which will render good translation pieces that meet the best of my clients' satisfaction. I strongly recommend translators to use your invaluable software.

I heard about Natural Reader from a friend who uses it to proof read her Reports before sending them out. I downloaded a trial version and then almost immediately realised I had found one of the most valuable tools I had come across. I am an author, writing books as well as newspaper and website Horoscopes content for companies around the world and quality is essential for my business. While I have a proof reader who proof reads my content, I now use Natural Reader as the final step in the proofing process. There is nothing like hearing what you have written out loud and reading it myself I tend to see or read what I expect to see, missing mistakes. With Natural Reader I not only pick up any mistakes that have been missed, it gives me a good sense of the natural flow of what I have written. I can't recommend this highly enough. My son is a motoring journalist and I have even converted him to Natural Reader.

As a PhD student, I constantly use Natural Reader to read over my own writings, journal articles, websites, email, and even e-books. I've been using Natural Reader Software every day for almost two months. It is undoubtedly the most useful software I own. As a PhD student, I constantly use Natural Reader to read over my own writings, journal articles, websites, email, and even e-books. Natural Readers' voice-speed controls allow me to listen to written material much quicker than reading on my own, allowing me to get through more material per hour.

Donna Brown Publicist

West Yorkshire, UK

Almost all of my work is online and in addition to that I run two websites. Some days my eyes just feel exhausted. I devour audiobooks but I'm also sent a lot of ebooks as I'm a reviewer. NaturalReader allows me to enjoy them without being glued to the screen or an eReader. I can enjoy the story and rest my eyes. I upgraded to a paid version because I was so impressed with the voices - it's made my reading experience so much easier. If I have a deadline for a review and I've been glued to a screen all day, I can still get a break this way. It's ideal.

I am a 77 old retired Spinning Wheel Maker, with lots of big floaters in my left eye, making reading a problem. I now find that by using NaturalReader I can "Listen" to lots of ebooks, including the Thousands of free ebooks on Gutenberg. Which I can burn to a CD as an MP3 using your brilliant software.It allows you to listen while you are getting on with your gardening, walking, odd jobs, anything, one thing I forgot, The speech Quality is very good. Thank you NaturalReader and all your great staff.

I have been using natural reader since 2007 and I would highly recommend it to anyone who works with writing, proofreading, editing, teaching, and publishing academic and empirical research. If you write novels or other works of fiction or non-fiction, natural reader would definitely help your craft. It would be tremendously helpful for students of any ages who can use a computer to express themselves and hear their written expression spoken back to them. It improves spelling, grammar, punctuation etc. Any professional who writes and publishes articles (research or otherwise) can benefit by employing natural reader. On top of all of these benefits, you can also turn all your text documents into audio mp3 files to play back when and where you wish.

Dees Retired Teacher/Tutor

Wilson, NC

When I first read something I have written, I always need to proof it to see if it reads the way I thought I had written it. Knowing this, I must read and reread several times to make sure I have written my thoughts correctly. My computer crashed and I have not yet been able to reinstall NaturalReader, my old standby. Since I correspond with some Japanese students I tutor in English, I always want my grammar to be accurate and NaturalReader makes me feel confident it is.

Daytona Beach, Fl

A friend told me about Natural Reader about five years ago and I became hooked. I LOVE NaturalReader. I help edit and sometimes co-author online courses developed by hundreds of professors. NaturalReader has cut my editing time in half! Now when I edit, I read as NaturalReader recites to me what is on the webpages. Mistakes are easily caught. Hearing NaturalReader enables me to listen for activities worded awkwardly so re-writes can be accomplished before publication. The reader also helps me to keep up with all the educational articles that are forwarded to me by colleagues. When will the NaturalReader IPAD app be coming out?

Normally it is not my way to spend my time to support any commercial product. But with NaturalReader I am so satisfied that I will do it for this Software. Organizing Rallye Events in Africa there is very less time each day. Normally no possibility to make actual Videos of the day. With NaturalReader it is possible. The software can be used very fast for comments on Videos. I save a lot of time and the result. Most people don’t record nice that this is a computer voice. With natural reader it is great fun to cut videos.

Jean-Paul Déry

Chula Vista, CA

My name is Jean-Paul Déry, I am a retired Computer Graphics Engineer with a huge mailing list. I live in Chula Vista, CA, and After the spell check, I always use the Natural Reader to “play back” my letters. The program clearly points out all of the words which may have been spelled correctly but are not appropriate. Such as the word, me, in place of the correct word, my, or them, instead of they, or words with missing letters like the instead of them or these, etc... The natural reader never fails to catch these errors which I myself may have over looked as well as my spell checker.

Several years ago, I developed Macular Degeneration, which made reading very difficult, and then almost impossible. My son guided me to the software, which has opened up a whole new world for me as I can choose what I need to read, and let Natural Reader read it to me. It’s been an invaluable tool and I highly recommend it to anyone with vision issues.

Also, sometimes it takes hearing what you have written from someone else, to know if it sounds right, NaturalReader is the perfect assistant for that. This has been my best buy of the year!

Natural reader is an excellent tool for memorizing key phrases of laws. By repeatedly listening to the phrases while gradually making it faster, I memorized various phrases on my way to work. Natural reader has changed my style of legal study.

Gerardo Murillo Technical Consultant

Valbonne, France

Natural reader has an amazing natural speaking quality. It is not just that the voice is not robotic: There are no disturbing clic and pop artifacts and intonation is such, that it is difficult to tell it is not a human speaking. Listening this speech is pleasant and relaxing. I don't even need to make any modification into the written text that in input to Natural Reader to get this astonishing quality.

I convert my eBooks to MP3 (using Natural Reader) and then listen at night, when I close my eyes. Or whenever I can free my attention, but not my hands and my eyes.

I have the English and French voice modules and have tested Spanish. I've found excellent voices from the large supplementary choice provided for each language. Gerardo Murillo Technical Consultant, Valbonne, France

I am extremely pleased with my purchase of Natural Reader. I work nights and find it important to keep my mind occupied so I listen to audio books. I find the voices very listenable and "natural". The software itself is very easy to understand and use and the pronunciation editor is a great tool. Thanks so much I am seldom so enthusiastic about a software purchase.

Natural Reader is one of the best investments I've made this year! NaturalReader works great for my long commute. I can listen to many lengthy PDF files while I drive, much safer then reading them!! I use it with everything, my email, by browser, and online ebooks... I'm on one of my computers every day just about all day and my eyes gets very tired. Natural Reader is one of the best investments I've made this year!

Thanks much.

With NaturalReader, I can now get through much of the material I had trouble finding time getting around to reading.

My work requires that I go through many technical papers and books every week. After a full-day in front of a screen, my eyes get very tired. With NaturalReader, I can now get through much of the material I had trouble finding time getting around to reading. NaturalReader is having a significant impact on my professional readiness, and even reduces stress as I feel I'm being productive listening to books while sitting in traffic during my daily commute!"

It has helped me to spot mistakes that grammar and spell-check overlooked. I have gone back to full time studies and I use NaturalReader to proofread my essays. It has helped me to spot mistakes that grammar and spell-check overlooked. It also overcome the problem of reading it myself and unconsciously reading a word right when it should be wrong. I am happy with the product.
