This application is designed to use the text to speech (TTS) and the speech recognition features of your Android device.

It was created with deaf and/or mute people in mind, so they can communicate with others without the need for sign language or lip reading.

It has a very simple interface, with large lettering for those that are visually impaired.

It is FREE! and it contains NO ADVERTS!

This app was developed to use your device's NATIVE language. In other words, it should work in whatever language you have your phone set to.

If you have problems getting it to "Speak", make sure you have a text-to-speech engine installed on your device such as Pico TTS.

If you have problems getting it to "Listen", check you have an internet connection available (WiFi or 3G data enabled) so that it can connect to the Google recognition services.

Further problems? Please email me.

*** This app has been thoroughly tested for use with Froyo, Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean *** This app scans clean with Norton, AVG and Webroot ***

Test Devices : Desire HD, Sensation, One X + Nexus 7

Male voice I like to see voice switch. I want my to have male voice. Some words have problem not picking name as Ms Hall or Mr. Othon. Hopefully in the future it will be done.

Pah! It works really well for me. No more misunderstanding between the Deaf and Hearing people. Click 'Rotate' for using slideout keyboard.

Wonderful! I'm deaf and autistic, and this app has enabled me to communicate in situations where I'm mute, cannot hear people in conversation properly or if I'm speaking to non-signers. The only drawback is that Virtual Voice doesn't work on my tablet (which is a Nexus 9) but only works on my phone. Thank you to the designer. It's a fantastic app!

A must have for the mute!! I am mute due to a stroke, this app is so wonderful!! I can now free myself from just written word that someone reads. This app is much better than the apps I paid for on my ipad. I thank the developer for this Beautiful voice!

Lashandra Jackson

Excellent This is an excellent app because since I cant talk, I use this to talk for me. This is wonderful & I love it!

A Google User

Useless I am removing this app. If you are hard of hearing-do not use this. My voice has been defined as clear and easy to understand. This mis quoted several short sentences. The worst voice recognition I have tried. I was looking for an app that would assist my hard of hearing/deaf clients. This is not it.

A Google User

Thank you I am deaf and this tool is very helpful. Keep the development up. The speak/listen buttons are a bit misleading at first

A Google User

Thanks for the update With the clear button this app is amazing now. Thanks for taking the time to update this. This is the first app I've ever rated. I emailed the dev to suggest a clear button and the dev took time out of his schedule for my request, that means alot. Also the new icon is awesome and I'm glad that it is still a free app lol
