Reviews

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.

Smooth and simple to operate transcription

This is a fuss-free way to add smooth audio transcription to your WP site. It’s simple to setup, operate and integrates well within a post or page (you can choose where you want it to appear). Ideal to help visually impaired readers enjoy your content, as well as offer those with little time to read the chance to listen to your articles instead.

The only thing worth noting is the plugin won’t recognise older posts and instead starts from when you first install, i.e. every new post after install will automatically be picked up and have associated audio created for it. This process can take a few minutes depending on the complexity and length of post made.

Plugging to flee

Plugging to flee. The developers do not respect their commitment that the solution should remain free for beta testers.
