About Voice Dream Writer

Voice Dream Writer is primarily a proofreading tool. While composing a document, you can listen to what you are writing or have written. The app contains a built-in thesaurus and a built-in dictionary, but it also allows you to search for “the right word” using phonetic, sound, rhyme, or word-meaning searches.

With Voice Dream Writer, you can export your file as a Microsoft Word file, as a text file, or as HTML, RTF, or Apple Pages files. You can send texts from the app, and you can even print your document directly from the app.

Integration with other Voice Dream apps

In combination with Voice Dream Reader, this app allows a user to compose and proofread a document. Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library Voice Dream Reader entry. That document could have started out as a hard-copy paper scanned by Voice Dream Scanner. Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library Voice Dream Scanner entry.
