How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent App June 25, 2012
I bought this app when I was diagnosed with cancer of the Larynx. The app clearly pronounces what I type and now I can communicate with my friends and family. I can not talk with my voice again so I purchased this app.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read the product info! October 15, 2012
By FCZ
For those who are giving this just one star because it won't work on their Kindle (complaining that the Kindle "has no mic")... you might note that this app says what you write. That means it must, by definition, be able to SAY it. In other words, if you have the Kindle Fire, you're good to go; if you have one of the other Kindles, please don't rate the developer poorly because the application he developed wasn't designed for your Kindle. Instead, maybe you should ask yourself why you bought an app you clearly couldn't use. But give the poor developer a break!

5.0 out of 5 stars Use this with my autistic son December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Load right away. Easy to change voice and type in what you want to say. My son picked up how to use it right away. Sure is alot cheaper and lighter than his dynavox. Great tool that is now very portable as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars So real October 3, 2012
Though there are many Types and Talk apps available for free download, I had to pay for this. Well, now I realize it is far more superior to the software I have downloaded. This voice clarity is great and easily understandable unlike others that speak like Robots. This one is awesome and can speak slow or fast. I tried this when I had bad throat and it communicated my words without any misinterpretation. There are three speed levels. I am glad that I got this app though I had to spend a dollar on this.

At 62 I had my tonsils removed and this item helped me speak when I couldn't! So when they hope you won't be able to talk, well there is a way, Type and Talk (Kindle TAblet Edition) works well! Thank You

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful for the disabled November 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
We got this for my daughter's kindle. She has cerebral palsy and is sometimes difficult to understand. This has been easy for her to use and she is excited that the voice is very understandable. She has a similar program that she uses on a laptop at school and loves that now she's got something to easily take wherever she goes.

There is no way to change the voice to that of a male, you are stuck with a woman's voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great App.
Does exactly what it says. You type a few words, and your Kindle Fire says what you typed. It would probably be useful if you lost your voice, but it's sometimes just fun to hear... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish it had more options for voice and speed and pitch and input...
I am non verbal, I love this app, however I do wish it had more options for voices, speed and pitches and I wish there were an easier way to input what I wanted to say. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in app and myself
Perhaps two stars is unfair. I should have paid more attention to the description, so only two stars for me as well. Does exactly the reverse of what I expected. Read more
