Dear Developers,

In compliance with Apple's new policy for apps uniquely identifying a device, we have updated our SDK to use Vendor ID in lieu of any other technique. We recommend all new app submissions update to this version so as not to risk a rejection by Apple.

You can find the updated SDK on our Developer Resources page:

For developers using our Pro or Premium SDK, please contact your iSpeech rep.

Big news, blog readers...iSpeech has officially released a publishing platform and API that
allows publishers and developers to instantly convert any content into audio form.

Two major companies are fans already.

Pearson is using the PDF option to create audio books. Our tool enables them to convert PDF books into audio files, at a fraction of the cost of professional voice talent. Score!

Evernote is using the API offered to enhance their Clearly product. Now, their customers can actually have the web read to them, while having all of the distracting stuff filtered out. Hallelujah!

It is our vision that with these cool options we're offering, you really can read with your ears.

Pearson likes it, Evernote likes it, you will too..

Amidst covert ops, the team snuck in some touring of beautiful Barcelona.

Here they are in front of one of Gaudi's masterpieces, "Sagrada Familia"..Apparently,Gaudi wasn't nicknamed "God's Architect" for nothin'

Breathtaking architecture, warm locals ,delectable mini-plates, and...
