Apk file size: 7.5 MB

******** Warning ********
Since the latest Google applications update most of the Google applications (Google maps and Google now for example) don't care anymore about the TTS settings and use only their own Google TTS voices.
So please note that for the moment we cannot guarantee compatibility for these applications as this is a unilateral decision from Google.
To keep using our voices in a Navigation GPS application we suggest to use the "Navigator" or Sygic application or any other Google Speech API compatible application.

******** Important Note ********
The application is free but you need to buy at least one voice within the application to be able to use our TTS (In-app Billing - EUR 3.99/voices et EUR 11.99/kids Premium voices)

******** Description ********
Acapela TTS allows you to buy and install our high quality voices and integrate them in your Android Device to use them with the system or any TTS compatible applications (such Google TalkBack, some GPS Applications, Translator applications, ebook reader, news reader ...)

For questions & installation instruction, visit http://www.acapela-group.com/acapela-for-android/acapela-tts-voices-installation-instructions/
In case of issues, please write us an email ([email protected]).

******** Instructions ********
1/ Tap the application icon. However, beforehand, check that you have a valid data connection, as the app needs to contact the server to check voice status.
2/ If you have more than one Google account, select the one associated with your Google Play account.
WARNING: you will not be able to change this afterwards. In case of error, uninstall the application and install it again.
3/ Browse the list of voices retrieved from our servers.
4/ Tap on a voice and a menu will appear:
• ‘Listen to the voice’ allows you to test an of our voices with your own text
• ‘Buy’ will open an in-app Billing window, asking for confirmation of your purchase
5/ After purchase, the voice will appear with a download icon. Click on it and choose ‘download’.
6/ The voice will be downloaded. Note: the amount of data to download is between 20 & 30 MB.
7/ If this is the first time you have downloaded a voice, you will have to set up your device in order to set Acapela TTS as the default Text To Speech.
• Go to Android ‘Settings’ -> ‘Language & Input’ -> Text-to-Speech Settings’.
• Select ‘Acapela TTS’ then click on the settings icon in the right
• Select the voice you installed or the default voice option (see later chapter)
8/ Press "Listen to an Example" (mandatory, in order to activate the voice)

Default voice option

In Android ‘Settings’ -> ‘Language & Input’ -> Text-to-Speech Settings’ -> ‘Acapela TTS’ -> 'Settings' you can now select a default voice instead of the explicit voice.
By doing that you can use a new system allowing you to switch between several Acapela voices directly in the application or using our widget.

To set the voice used simply open the application then press and hold to the voice you want to set as default voice (a yellow star will appear)
Or click on the widget to switch between all the voices.

Like it but one problem! When I am using it to read a memo, it stops reading at a certain point when the memo is long. There is no way I have found (doesn't mean it doesn't exist) to have it start reading from where it stopped.

Christopher Burnette

Very nice I really like the small creature voice and the British English male. Sounds like Jarvis.

Jason Edgar

Best sounding speech synthesis engine I've found Best sounding speech synthesis engine I've found, wish I could justify buying all the voices.

John from Woodside Apps

Nice Very stable and good clear voices.

Shahid Iqbal

Variety of voices.

john galt

not free not free

Rickard Remelin

Much better than expected. This software add's a tts engine and its great! Lots of voices, some pretty bad, others are really good. The male voices for US are very good and Will's voices are legendary! He does a lot of different comical voices, and I sat home alone laughing out loud so hard att his awesome voiceacting! This app is only a store front however. You pay 4 euro for each voice (except kid voices) but you only need 1 voice, and you can try them all before buying so no problem really. Absolutely worth a try.

Kevin Rawlinson

Misleading...NOT free..but good quality voices This program is just a store front to buy each voice for $4. They don't even offer a couple free sample voices. I will say though I tested most of the voices online and they are quite good replications and respond fairly well to text. Some of the emotive voices are scary real. 1star for app..4 star for voices.

Fred R. S.

Purchase menu only Just a menu to buy voices in Euro dollar!!

Naeem Ahmad

Continuously crashing after the update

Dee Asus

Voices should be standalone apps Bought one voice, but wasn't happy with it. Couldn't figure out how to get a refund, as it was an in-app purchase. Bought a second, which was much better quality. Would like to review the two products separately, but can't as they were both purchased through this app.

Ben Mustafa

£££ Good quality voices (though no match for Ivona) however, this is very expensive compared to other text to speech engines. Also, the point of the widget is beyond me...

TheShadowfire204

Pretty good Wish there were some free voices

Shiv Manas

Voices not as good as SVOX, they're quite robotic

brooke nichole anderson

My favorite text to speech engine especially for reading. this text to speech engine is very responsive and the voices sound great. My favorites are Heather, and a couple of the UK accents.

Mustafa Alarbash

Nice but server always down Most of the time I cannot use text to speach with the arabic voice that I paid for!!!

Phil S

Pls make all features of this app work I wonder why it always crashes when i try to use the free app. I cannot even load the widget due to this error. My phone is xperia arc s on stock gb. Moon reader can use the voice though, and the voice works within the android's settings.

Jordan Margy Young

Crashes consistently on my Samsung Note II No way to test out before shelling out $5 for a voice. No obvious way to get my money back so caveat emptor

Theo Campbell

Only works with 3rd party apps now

Drache Mitch

Awful It is 2014. TTS voices shouldn't sound like they are underwater, and they shouldn't burp out words, nor should they have unnaturally long pauses at punctuation. Junk.

RobertLVideos

Demo app stopped playing I liked it before it stopped working. Also, it IS 2014/2015. Time to offer higher quality voices and delete the old ones.

Nichole Burke

Cool but spendy Voices r good but most r 5 bucks, and kids voices r about 3 times more since update voices keep getting erased, please help. I love this app. Tired of repeatedly replacing I BOUGHT!

yo haney

Cool but expensive I thought it was going to have some free voices, but I couldn't find any. Most of them sound good but are around $3.99 or so

Steve A

Best voices for Android. If you need to use a text to speech voice to communicate because of a speaking disability, I highly recommend these voices.

Paul Rattner

Pretty damn good The voices are clear, but each one is different. Try them out first, then pick something you like. If the price came down a little, I might buy more than one. Maybe sell voice packs?

Kareen Kiwan

Good tts but... The voices are clear and in a good quality but automatic language switching between voices is missing. Please add this essential feature

Ken Zeta like

Refund. For willoldman

Matthew Hughes

Best sounding I downloaded a few other name brands and this one is the clearest sounding. It also has more voices to choose from.

JC Klatch

NOPE $14 for a voice? NO WAY!

T Watson

Purchase Failed error S4 Unable to purchase any voices!!??

Mark VanOuse

The best of the best! As a voice professional myself, I wholeheartedly recommend Acapela as the best anywhere. I particularly like the British Graham. It has authentic inflection and voice dynamics. Excellent quality. I have been an Acapella customer for over four years on different platforms and have been very pleased with this service.

Helena Von

Voice I like this app, one of the better voice choices.

Brandon K

I cant begin to say just how much i love the voice i bought....no way in hell i coud read research papers without it

TC Holmes

Uh, no. Pros: The voices are not free, but the app is, so you can test things with your own words before buying. Cons: this is cheaply done and more expensive than some other products and not much attention was paid to region. Most of the voices are ridiculous and not usable for everyday stuff. The pronunciation is off (can't say A capella correctly!) and it doesn't take very long to figure out that the inflection of the US voices is guessed at by a European.

No I don't

Great support, glitchy sound for me Company responded to my email promptly! I'm unhappy with the glitchy sound. From one word to another there is an annoying "tuning"glitch, transpose sound. The voice is a more natural sound than Google voice but the glitches and choppy sound still need work.

Jason Pitt

Great voices, lack of settings I've used SVOX for years, but got a new phone and decided to try a new engine. I like the Will happy voice quite a lot. It honestly sounds more human than SVOX Michael. HOWEVER, the lack of settings is proving irritating. It would be nice to be able to correct pronunciation on some words, but the biggest thing I'm missing from SVOX is being able to set the voice's volume. It's just too quiet if you're doing anything else, like listening to music. I'd gladly pay slightly more for such functionality.

Jim Hubbard

Doesn't replace S-Voice The reason I bought it was to get rid of the ridiculous s voice synthesized speech. It wont.

Herbert Casey

It's not free if you have to buy somthing for it to work.....DUH!

Glenn Captain II

Great Love Acapella tts. Been buying most of not all of their English voices. Need to add emilioEnglish, valeriaEnglish, Arabic British English bilingual nizar, bilingual voices to the android app so I can buy those!

алекс аа

great app! one disadvantage is very quiet! Please add the volume control works a lot quieter than SVOX :((

Jim Thibault

Looking for a way to use multiple languages. Bought a English and French voice found I can change them manually by the notification shade. Not ideal but it do for now. The English voice did not pronounce 9 am correctly. It should be 9 a m not "am" there is setting . Do not know why kids voices are so expensive

Daniel O.

Not bad. I didn't actually buy a voice, but testing the online demos let me know just what I'm getting into. There's only one thing that really bothers me: usually when something is higher-priced, it's because the thing in question is BETTER. The quality of the voices by Acapela are all over the place, but a few of them are _very_ good. If I ever do decide to buy a speech synthesis program, I think this might be the first place I'll look.

Jason Edgar

Best sounding speech synthesis engine I've found Best sounding speech synthesis engine I've found, wish I could justify buying all the voices. App has integration issues but when it works it sounds great. Support is minimal.

Tyler Likens

Wow Make them free. Don't install!

pete eide

its not free what a joke do not buy it

Brad Arbeiter

Expensive mistake Expensive mistake for realizing Google maps doesn't not care. There should be some trial voices or a refund option. While I agree it was clearly my fault for not reading the description. 3.99 is high only to download a voice to use as a sample for testing functionality.

Theresa Popp

Must buy voiced Rip off

Kizzume Fowler

Doesn't replace the standard voice. I bought a voice to replace the standard Android voice so I could actually have a male voice. Even after following directions, all my Google apps are still using the same standard female Android voice. Sent an email, no response. I'm on Android version 5.

Peter Meijer

My installed voices suddenly vanished recently. Acapela: contacting server - you don't have Google Play account configured. Uninstalling and reinstalling Acapela fixed the problem.

John Ostwald

Security breach When I made an account with them, they sent me my password in plain text

hend Abdelfattah

excellent i solved the problem with talk back on facebook and acapela runs well. keep it up!

Michael Dycus

Great but pricy My favorite tts engine, though it is pricy.

Taylor Dawson

High Quality Voices Truly a great verity of voices in many different languages. I purchased a number of voices and use them frequently. Great product. I look forward to future updates and voices. Keep up the good work.

Paul Allen

Very useful app and voice I am liking the 'Will' voice I purchased quite well. As well as better access and usage to the voice than I am used to.

Kenjamin Lafayette

Great voices, way overpriced Voices are pretty OK, but the price they want for them is outrageous. Other comparable voices are far cheaper.

Amir Din

Where is her I'm looking for Heather. Where is she?

Steve A

Best voices for Android. If you need to use a text to speech voice to communicate because of a speaking disability, I highly recommend these voices.

Jason Blooey

Peladophobian would be proud! Now he can make his Illuminati videos on the go!

Alexei Zakharov

Useless in free version No free voices. Voices are too extensive ranging from 4 to 11 euro.

gary melconian

Keeps on crashing for no odd reason on marshmallow Have sent several crash reports to support no resolution so far. Think these voices need further development previous versions. Please acappella team improve these voices on Android 6 and beyond.

Kelvin Hon

May I ask? If I buy a voice and i will change a new phone. Can I download again to my new phone?

William McIntosh

Can you save phrases? I love this app and the voices, but I was wondering if there was a way to save audio and phrases to my device?

Raymond Dinkins Jr

Raymond Very good

Chris Whipple

Unstable, can't even try to buy a voice without a crash

Emmanuel Ben-Yair haLevi

Very good product! However... You have one of the best TTS software. I would like to ask if have plans to add Hebrew support? For sure I am speaking on behalf of many people... we are patiently waiting for your Hebrew support. Hebrew support is the missing piece that will make your software be the only and most complete text-to-speach solution on the market. Thank you in advance for your consideration and time.

Michael Nunley

Good, but disappointing I downloaded this app to have multiple voices for my books. Like many people on the internet, I am cheap/poor. I was looking for free voices, of which I got none.

Evren Guloksuz

not as good as the demo when you download. the words break often.

jonathan turner

Needs something Microsoft Sam would MAKE this app

Miller Dunlap

Has its weaknesses but UK "Rachel" voice has spoiled me for anything else - as far as I'm concerned, she just is the voice of my phone... through three phones now.

Mal Alford

It's good but, Can't restore last working using titanium backup

Jacob Marsh

Used to work Worked good when I had my Sony Xperia Z but doesn't work now that I have a HTC ONE M8. I set it up correctly but it won't work in Google maps. It works other places fine so Idk.

Sam I Am

Works well with Voice Notify Freezes up when in Editor. Pronounciation work-arounds are hard to nail. Overall - decent sounding voices (Tyler) with the right applications. Also currently using SVOX (slightly better editing capabilities)

Jason Edgar

App has integration issues but when it works it sounds great. Support is terrible and will do nothing to investigate errors or repair bugs. This app will not read web pages although it is supposed to, the app crashes and logging a fault call with support does nothing to help -REPLY to support: I know you took a long time to help me but not sure what you were working on as you had never asked for any diagnostic information, not even Android versions. I look forward to the new version, do you have an ETA on

Dawn Havrelock

Didn't Work For Any App Tried to report the problem and it would freeze my phone in a loop pattern while attempting to report. Wasted money paying for the voice. Will uninstall.

Andrew Lau

I downloaded this to get the best voice Heather... It gives me everything but Heather? Crap. Update: May I ask what happened? I've been using it for a decade on my PCs.

Carrie Simons

Its okay.... The voices still sound a little distorted and robotic like and sometimes the words run into each other even after fixing the settings. Google voices are still much clearer. Although support was very helpful.

Kareen Kiwan

Good tts but... The voices are clear and in a good quality but automatic language switching between voices is missing. Please add this essential feature

Flower The Flowey

Mrpimp Hitlerspimp uses this for his vids so now I will too!

Nick G

Not good I paid almost $5.00 dollars for a voice that I thought was good on the demo, but it sucks. No refunds of course.

Rockstah DOTinfo

Crashed over and over then found out everything charges

Elin Ouchterlony

Good synthesis indeed although I am perplexed as to why (really creepy) kids voices cost three times as much, if not more... ??

soundblast wrw

Hey there I'm kyle Thanks for giving me voice now soundblast can use me on YouTube to make videos

Kareen Kiwan

Good tts but... The voices are clear and in a good quality but automatic language switching between voices is missing. Please add this essential feature

Alexander Moroz

Thanks for options for reducing pauses on punctuations!

Jop-i Artacho

Nice Really nice tts.

Adam W

Soooo Much Better Than Google new "improved" voices. And I just now, after like three years, discovered custom dictionaries feature! Holy crap! If it cannot say something correctly, you have to power to fix it! Awwwwesome!!!

Jason Edgar

Leon Lubasch

The voce is better than other voices. But it is not use for sirri

Costin Dumi

Horrible nazal voices Distorted . There are much better choices.

Souvik Biswas

DON'T DOWNLOAD! ? Not even a single free voice, you have to purchase everything out of the box. ?

Jose Miranda

Like it a lot Really useful tts, voice very clear.

Sankofa Legend

You have to purchase every single one?! Mobile version is stupid! I like pc version better!

Carlton Smith

I love stories read to me. I prefer the voice named Will. You can tell it a computer, but it's quite good.

Zaina J

Can't even download the sentences

Alexander Moroz

Thanks for options for reducing pauses on punctuations!

Wimmer Jürgen

Kudo, easy and handsome to use.

Dee Gee

Needs Much Improvement More intervals between the speech rates of 100 and 125. I can never get it to sound right. It's either too fast or too slow. Custom pronunciations in dictionaries do not work either when reading epub etc.

Travis Clark

Great Voices and Management... Acapella has great voices and the Android support for TTS is the best there is on any platform. Now though for the bad, this voice even when set as default is not used by google maps, or google voice, unless my data goes out... Very is disappointing indeed as I really don't like the tiny woman aspect is the google speech packages. Back too the app that manages three Acapella voices, it for some reason likes to delete my voices at random as I use it to test the voices and make changes to the voices.

Mark VanOuse

As a voice professional myself, I wholeheartedly recommend Acapela as the best anywhere. I particularly like the British Graham. It has authentic inflection and voice dynamics. Excellent quality. I have been an Acapella customer for over four years on different platforms and have been very pleased with this service.

Juan Pablo Rodríguez

Only if you lie the voice But even so some are extremely expensive. If a 3€ doesn't satisfy you move along, the next tier is 11€

Andrei Proniuk

Super, but.. The best voices. But I'd like to see Ukrainian language in list.

Dave Oliver

WAY TOO ROBOTIC... Not human like I was very disappointed to try out several of the voices. And they all came across as very choppy and robotic-sounding. I will have to continue to look for other TTS options.

Brother Scott Jetton

Great app This app is awesome for those who love a book being read to them. Works great with Google play books. Voices are pricey but my favorite is "Will" it's about $4.50 USD.

Brandon Miller

I've been using the Tracy voice for about 3 months now and I love it! Thank you Tracy, if that's your real name, and thank you acapella for releasing this app and such high-quality voices.

Skaya Powell

This Could Be The Future Of TTS Voices I Can See It Now?

Flubberlutsch

Perfect voices! But to expencive... I would like to have 3 voices, but 12€ is way to expencive for that. They shouldn't be more than $1, maximum $1.50 each...

Lisa Stoltz

Voice aloud has free ones and they answer there emails promptly,the voices are smooth and the app has nice features. The voice i purchased from this app cuts out and sounds like there's an echo...a little help would have been nice.

Gerald Wade

Gerald Wade This app sucks sucks because I can't even download a text to speech voice as a mp3 file and ya have to pay that much money for it, so ya gooder fix this app the right way

Gãmmêrmãñ Bøb

Kyle is in this

Chris Human

Crashes on custom dictionaries aside from the somewhat robotic sound to the voices, there is a great variety of voices to choose from. This would receive a higher rating, but the custom dictionary feature causes the app to crash, making the voices partially unusable. Tried contacting support and all I got was "we'll look into it" and haven't heard back since.

Juanita O'Hara

I love Lucy I think this app has great sounding voice I especially like Lucy and we'll happy unfortunately the voice disappears when the app updates and it has to be restarted

user name

Quality I purchased Tyler , Aussie English, to listen to lectures. Using @ voice aloud reader app with settings : rate .90 & pitch .85 I'm more than impressed. Would definitely recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

Good but Justine is missing... The voices are very nice but the Justine voice (belgian french) is missing from the list (but available on the website). I know there are french from france but it's not the same (soixante-dix...). Thanks.

Gloriana Laskowski-Cohen

Does not work and crashes.. paid for nothing

Ryan M

Best voices by far I highly recommend these voices over any other.

Ali Rabiee

Crashed the very first time!

Jason Vice

Hated it
