Latest reviews (2019-10-14) Matti Suomenaro: Thank you for making this. It is an incredible accessibility tool! (2019-10-01) Arthur Bisle: 5000 characters limit for a single voice generation query (this limitation is set by wavenet, but a workaround could definitely be found if the author would like to find it). No playback button on the toolbar, only hotkey and right-click menu. Not hotkey for stop. And you must have got an API Key on WaveNet web site in the first place, which is not that easy but there's a pretty good guide helping you get through. (2019-09-24) PB M: Wonderful! Should add a shortcut to download Google API key costs money. (2019-09-13) DJay ': Easy to set up. Thanks for the YouTube Video how the get the API Key. Looking forward to you ongoing development. Thanks for the time you are investing and sharing. (2019-09-11) Dayn Wilkins: Fantastic extension! Just what we needed to generate audio for our e-learning projects! Many many thanks. (2019-09-09) phly95 :: Great extension. I wish I could input long text documents as well as download as a WAV or OPUS file. (2019-08-16) Miguel Ceja: This is, by far, the easiest way in which I've been able to get Wavenet audio as a downloadable file. I spent many hours last year trying to find an app that could do this. Thanks for the developer for such an amazing extension! (2019-08-15) Christian Lane: Works well, though I cannot get shortcuts to work. They simply don't work, anything I can try to fix it? (2019-08-12) Tim Faber: I rarely write reviews but in this case I'll make an exception: I simply love this extension! Leveraging the powerful Wavenet text-to-speech from Google, with this extension you can simply select text and have the computer read it out loud in a close-to-human fashion. A way to make this extension even better, would be to get rid of the 5.000 character limit. (2019-07-21) Zhou Peng: Very good. ^ ^ (2019-06-24) E. Deybis Abril: Wow! Outstanding work! Thank you so much for making this! It gives the life, usability and practicality that Google's Cloud text-to-speech needs! Thanks again! (2019-06-21) Pedro Prosper: Thank you so much for this extension. I was looking for this for a long time. It's working perfectly and it's exactly what I want :) 5 stars (2019-06-07) Jamie Brown: I am blown away with how sweet this is! I do enjoy the AUS voices. (2019-05-25) Dan Honnen: After you have your API key, it just works! This is a simple extension that doesn't try to offer you a thousand poorly implemented features, rather, it presents it's core features devoid of any bloat or distractions. What a web it would be if more devs had the focus shown here. Excellent work good sir! (2019-04-28) Lorant Boros: This Plugin is a Pearl! Thanks for the Developer for his hard work of coding this extension! I only wish I knew how to use the SSML markup features when feeding data to be read into the plugin. (2019-03-26) Jesper Lysgaard Andersen: This is the closest Ive gotten to finding an app the can convert TTS wavenet to mp3 files, great job, thanks!. I only have one issue. If I mark more than a few lines of text and click "Download as mp3" i will get an error: "Failed - Network error". (2019-03-24) Joakim: really great extension. A hotkey to stop reading would make it even better :) (2019-01-17) Austin Stokes: Make sure to watch the video in the previews if you can't figure out how to work it. (2019-01-03) Howard Tang: It's the best add-on for WaveNet on Chrome. I would love to see it supports hotkey.
