iSpeech brings Bush and Obama text to speech apps

By Jared DiPane on 26 Aug 2011 03:58 pm EDT

Just what you have always wanted, right? Input some funny text and hear either Bush or Obama speak that text to you, who could pass that up? The folks at iSpeech have developed some fun little applications that allow us the countless hours of fun of typing random things, and having them spoken by folks who have run the US. Now you can have that conversation with the president you have always wanted to have, excited?

Update - Downloading the free application will get you only the text input to voice, if you want to use your device microphone to record something to be translated you are have to upgrade for $3.99. This purchase is made in app, and requires you to input your credit card information in, no option to buy a full version through AppWorld.  The registration screen requests a phone number which will allow you to use the SMS functionality but you can scroll to the bottom and select skip if you wish to opt out of that.

iSpeech brings Bush and Obama text to speech apps


downloaded and deleted...

Unfortunately the voices sound the same for both on the PlayBook, and it doesn't even sound like either president.

Wasn't very fun. Voice was weird and it kept asking you to share/like. Plus, it majorly drained the device. Deleted.


Those are both iPhones aren't they? I can't tell the difference. ; )

Good question. We have a bunch of new BB phones that could have been shown off!

I thought this might be neat until I saw the list as long as my arm of permissions this thing wants. Why does this need full access to phone files, security data, bluetooth, phone dialer, etc.
Hell no, and no thanks iSpeech.

Wow. Would love to have one that does BOTH Obama & Bush, if I could set their dialog/conversation from text. That would be hilarious ! Here them talking to each other! lol

The Obama version seemed to be pretty decent on the Playbook but the Bush one sounded nothing like him

I thought it was pretty funny, the Obama one anyway.... lol

Somethings don't come off all that well. But it's good for a couple laughs.
