With over 11 hours of custom meditations for 15 different parts of your day including traveling, being online, taking a work break and going to sleep, buddhify will help you de-stress, sleep better and bring more awareness and compassion to all parts of your life.

With more and more evidence that it can reduce stress and improve wellbeing, there has never been more interest in mindfulness and meditation. However even if you want to try it out, most people don’t have that much spare time, think meditation is a bit too hippy or don’t know where to start. buddhify 2 solves all this.

So if you ever thought meditation was not for you, this is the app that will change your mind.

TTS – TEXT TO SPEECH – PRONUNCIATION HELP

SPEAKING GIF

Many of you have difficulty with English pronunciation. It isn’t just the individual words, but the rhythm and intonation of the English language, which is so different from Spanish.

The following website is a Text To Speech tool. Just type a short text, like this paragraph, choose a voice and listen.  I recommend Rachel’s or Graham’s voice.  But you can try all the British English voices.

The speech you hear is not perfect, but it will help you. Maximum text length is 300 characters.
