For Mental-Visual Learners
This is probably the only app that is critical in my life. It might sound counterintuitive for me to say that the app that lets you listen to text is for visual learners but hear (lol) me out. Research (google it) has shown that whether we are looking at images through our eyes or seeing/conjuring images in our mind’s “eyes”, the visual cortex becomes active. Let me rephrase, regardless of whether you’re seeing things in reality, say pictures or text on a book or visualizing what you did yesterday, the same part of the gain is being used to process those “images.”
The way I comprehend and learn from information is by constantly forming mental images of the concepts and linking and rearranging them into a graph model in my head–this becomes slow/more difficult when I have to (using the same visual cortex) basically multi-task/process text I’m reading on a page and synthesize corresponding mental images; the same part of my brain is doing the processing for two different tasks, so my reading speed and the quality and speed of the synthesized information in my head suffer.
This is where speechify comes in. Speechify lets me engage my auditory cortex, which is otherwise unused in learning (from reading), for consuming and processing the information (text) and allows me to fully engage my visual cortex for comprehension and learning. I hope this makes sense, and I’d love if people could share any supporting or conflicting research.
Grateful, grateful, grateful! Thank you!
I am SO grateful there is FINALLY a app that is capable of reading out loud for me! With ADHD, Anxiety, and learning disabilities I struggle with just getting though a page, and I love to collect books and as much information as possible with ALL the good intentions possible to read and grow! I beat myself up for buy all the things I do (reading wise) bc I struggle with getting that time and focus long enough to read. Being a single momma of three kids ages 12,6,&5 and a fur mama of a cat and dog, I am very busy. Being able to hear the information of topics I am super interested in is LIFE CHANGING!
I love my audiobooks! But when wanting to read websites (just finally was able to listen/read about CBT for ADHD on a website by copy and pasting the url! Life changing!), college text books (haven’t tried this feature just yet but I plan to soon) and I am looking forward to being able to have my email read about my kids endless school stuff!
I have been searching for YEARS now for something that could help me and hands down this is what I have needed! Thank you for creating this app. Also keeping this app’s add on features at a reasonable price! I will be doing the add on for the speed preference and I want to support someone who created something so user friendly and for those like me who want to grow and yet are stuck and struggle with all the personal stuff that keeps us from growing!
