    Better voices. But the bigger reason is you get to see the full pdf on mobile devices rather than just text as Speechify does it. The voices change how they speak based on titles and punctuations better than Speechify as well.

    It is almost the same interface as Speechify, and costs much less (half the price if you pay annually). There's also a free tier (where you don't have to pay at all). The paid tier of NaturalReader allows downloading an MP3 (up to 20 pages at a time), which Speechify seems not to support.
