Speechify
Speechify is the #1 text-to-speech app, built for your busy life.

Our amazing users are students, professionals, and productivity lovers. Many of them have learning differences like dyslexia and ADHD, while many just want to read faster and listen on the go. With Speechify you can turn any book, document, or website into audio, and listen while you're in the car, doing laundry, walking your dog, making dinner, working out, skydiving—whatever your daily routine is!

At Speechify our goal is for reading to never be a barrier to learning for anyone. Whether you have dyslexia, ADHD, low vision, or are learning English as a second language, this shouldn't hold you back from learning information quickly and effectively.

We're proud of the incredible team we have at Speechify, with team members who were previously Senior iOS Engineers at companies like Snapchat, Apple, & Uber, were ranked #1 in Bulgaria for math, are badass vegans with insane social media followings, and are on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list. We all love and prioritize creating value, learning as much as we can, listening to audiobooks, working out and eating healthy, and making our users feel empowered.

    Cliff Weitzman
    Founder & CEO
    I am dyslexic. Reading a sentence takes me the same amount of energy and brain power as most people take when solving a four digit long division math equation in their head. I love creating value, getting people into audiobooks, doing backflips, and telling stories. I sometimes speak at on entrepreneurship, learning, dyslexia, perseverance, leadership, & recruiting teams.
