Con Free version available, but upgrades are costly
$69.50, $129.50, or $199.50, does not appear to be a lifetime purchase, there seems to be a limit on how many images that can be used with the OCR function within the different tiers.

Encountered stability issues on MacOS High Sierra. Changing voices or opening a .docx Word document can cause crashes.
Con Few hotkeys
You can speed up or slow down the voice, and pause play the voice reading, save audio using shortcuts, but that's about it. Seems like the app is more GUI driven which is absurd since accessibility is a big attraction for people seeking software like this in the first place.
Con Can't skip or jump around document easily
There is no ability to jump around the text in the document using the mouse to click where you want to start reading, nor to skip by paragraph, page, multiples of sentences, etc. or using hotkeys.
