If you've got a great sense of humor, you will enjoy the fun that YapAway has to offer. This cool iPhone app utilizes text-to-speech conversion by allowing you to type a bit of text into a document. Once in place, the text is converted into speech, and the document is read aloud in your choice of one of 20 voices or 13 languages. Call your friends up on the phone, and let your phone speak your converted text in a weird voice or foreign language. (iPod Touch users, you will need to connect a speaker system to your device, or hold the iPod near a phone's mouthpiece, to have the phrases read aloud.) An example of some of the ultra weird voices you will be able to convert your text into include helium voice, sinister echo and warbly voice while some of the more human readers of your text include a female newsreader, a Scottish male, or an American male. A few of the comical features of YapAway are shown below:
  • 20 voices: high quality human and fun play voices
  • 13 languages for *translation
  • speed and pitch controls
  • start, stop and pause speech
  • pause while receiving a call
  • select where to start speech in large documents
Playing pranks on friends can be most rewarding, and can lighten up the atmosphere a bit when things get hectic in the office. However, there are more benefits to this app than just teasing friends. You may use YapAway to convert your native tongue and speak a foreign language for educational purposes, or as a tool while you are traveling. Simply type in or copy the text you want translated, and choose your From and To languages on that screen display. You will be given the audio translation which you can then easily practice speaking, and use in a conversation. YapAway is a great utility and entertainment tool for everyone to enjoy on a fun and practical level.
