Reviews

Upload mp3 file not working

It is a great product, but I would like to upload my own audio. On your website, there is an Upload mp3 file button, but not matter what mp3 I choose, it fails after a couple of seconds. The status bar has a red vertical line on the left with the word Failed after it. I tried to send you and email and wrote on the forum, but you haven't responded.

Can SpeechKit be used in my case?

Hi Speechkit, This is an amazing plugin for wordpress. But I have a case that Speechkit can be used perfectly. I'm an english teacher. Recently, I want to build an elearning website for my students to practice at home. But one of my needs is that student voice recognition after they learn words or sentences. I want to have a plugin that students can record their voice and the text appears in a text box, that they can see if their pronunciation is correct or not. Is there any chance that I could use Speechkit for that purpose? Thanks you!

Speech Kit A Great Addition To Our Blog

South Africa is a country with a high illiteracy rate, extremely expensive data and the competition among online news platforms is fierce. Speechkit has helped UnCensored stand out by making it easy and faster for our readers to access our content through listening rather than reading. The figures speak for themselves. Audio engagement per article is way above average customers and grew 38% in October and grew an additional 16% in November. Average Listen Per article grew 23% in November to 3 minutes 29 seconds! Easy and useful.

Speechkit leaves me speechless

The plugin is simple to use and adds great functionality to the site. Any support request is promptly and courteously dealt with. This is a fantastic plugin which allows people to listen to content whilst doing other things.

Great addition to my website

I am a small publisher and do not have the time to record audio to accompany my posts. SpeechKit makes it easy and I can also push my posts through as podcasts now too.
