  • (2022-08-14) Aldahir_17 el pro: bueno esto mas que una opinión es un reporte de un error que tengo, bueno por lo que e visto esta extensión se puede usar en los documentos Google pero a mi cuando lo pongo a leer uno cuando termina un párrafo se queda en bucle envés de segur leyendo aparte no se cuando ya esta empezando a leer gracias a que no se subraya lo que va diciendo mientras que en paginas web si funciona bien, no se si me di a entender o si esto ya es normal solo se que antes no pasaba esto, gracias por su tiempo por favor arreglen eso
  • (2022-08-01) The Uncle Cornelius's Stomach Experience: Hard to use. Repeats one sentence over and over and wont read the rest of the highlighted text.
  • (2022-06-14) Clara Lanovaz: The best!!!!!!!!!
  • (2022-06-14) Ashley Harigan: This is the only read-aloud add on I have found that will work in Locked Mode on Google Forms. This is a must for me when using Google Forms for assessments for my students.
  • (2022-05-25) Kwazzy: it only works on google drive, which i know is the point but it would be cool if it could also work on any website :(

  • (2022-04-21) Kellie Case: I couldn't figure out how to work the text to speech part at first till I highlight dragged a pargraph then a play button popped up, very helpful to have my college ebook read to me however the program highlights the words as it's reading but it's sooo slow, like no one ever has talked that slow, makes it confusing for trying to follow along, when i scroll down the page trying to keep up it asuto puts the page back up to where the program is highlighting what they think they are reading so i lose my place and i cant find if there is an option to turn off the 'highlighting as it reads' feature, just overall annoying.
  • (2022-04-12) Julian H: the annoying bar pops up on every page i go on, and it's installed by admin so i can't remove it

  • (2022-02-16) Sandra QI: This is the best app for students in elementary school, high school, middle school, and college! I've been teaching my students for over 4 years, and it still works! This extension has so many things, from reading your essay, or paragraph to you, your grammer, and a virtual dictionary! I suggest using this app for all your PDF's, documents, and Word. It's free and it's just amazing! Mrs. McJules

I have been using this for about 3 or 4 years and it works perfectly fine.

  • (2021-03-09) lonleh kitteh: this app was forced on my pc WITHOUT permission! my school barely uses it, chrome says it's dangerous and temporarily removes it. then it comes back, then my pc starts crashing 1,000 times and i suspect that this application is causing all the crashes. chrome was right and this is clearly a VIRUS! i can't remove it, i can't delete it, communist plot.
  • (2021-03-05) Never Ever: It was okay. It's just that on random times it doesn't let me use some options . Like the writing tool. Overall its okay
