What's New

We're keeping up with the latest macOS Mojave update by introducing Dark Mode compatibility.

This version also fixes a few minor bugs to streamline use with a Dvorak keyboard and to keep the playback volume steady. It also addresses issues with exporting files made with the Alex voice.

Thanks for using the app!
