This update upgrades the base iOS version to 13.0 but users with devices running older versions of iOS can continue using an older version of the app which I intend to leave available for download.
- Removed iSpeech
The iSpeech library hasn’t been updated in quite a while so it’s not compatible with the latest versions of iOS and had to be removed.
- Added support for Apple speech synthesis
As a replacement, Apple’s own speech synthesis is utilized. It’s totally subjective, of course, but I think these voices sound about as good as the iSpeech voices. However, there may not be as much choice regarding accent and gender so you might get a male voice even if you have the female option selected depending on which accent you’ve requested.
