Description from store CaptionSpeaker is a chrome extension that allows you to hear subtitles in a specified language when they are set on youtube. # Usage 1.Right-click the CaptionSpeaker icon to open the settings (Options) and save the appropriate speaker settings (Please be sure to do so as there is a possibility that the speech may fail in the standard setting.). 2.Open the video that you want YouTube to produce subtitles for 3.Click CaptionSpeaker icon to enable subtitle speech (If the icon is green, it is on.) 4.Start playing movie (The speech starts when the subtitles appear.) If you want to stop the subtitle speech, you can turn it off by clicking the CaptionSpeaker icon. When speaking, the speaker is the default setting of the browser at first. For example, in a Japanese environment, the speaker is Japanese, so if you want him to speak English, please set it on the setting page (Right-click the icon to select an option, or click the icon to select Options.). You can also change the reading speed on the settings page. When you change the speaker's language (Locale), you try to produce subtitles in that language (I sometimes fail.). # Note - CaptionSpeaker is a Chrome Extension that reads out the subtitles set for YouTube videos. It does not have the ability to translate Youtube videos. If the YouTube video does not have subtitles in the target language, it will not be spoken. # Update History # # Version 1.0 First release # # Version 1.1 - Add an option to stop the previous utterance when a new utterance is made - If the subtitle in the same language as the speech setting is default, add the option of not speaking # # Version 1.2 - When reading is turned off, stop speaking if you are speaking. - Addresses an issue that may cause a slight delay in reading ## Version 1.3 -Slightly changed the judgment criteria of "Subtitles in the same language as the speech setting" ## Version 1.4 -Added "Setting to read only when subtitles are displayed" setting item ## Version 1.4.2 - Fixed an issue where subtitles could not be read (November 26, 2020 JST) ## Version 1.4.3 - Fixed the problem that subtitles could not be read ## Version 2.0.0 - Compatible with Manifest V3 - Fixed the problem of not speaking when transitioning from a channel (www.youtube.com/channel/...) or playlist (www.youtube.com/playlist?list=...) to a video page. - Supports embedding in pages other than www.youtube.com (type that iframe captures www.youtube.com/embed ...) (Note that when you "add to queue" in youtube Not compatible with the displayed mini player) - Added "Lower volume of original video during utterance" setting ## Verson 2.0.1 (2022/05) - Fixed the problem of trying to speak the language of the browser's language setting side when the language setting of the browser (window.navigator.language) and the language to be read are different. ## Version 2.0.2 (2022/06) - By going to get the next information when you couldn't get the subtitles, you reduced the possibility that you couldn't get the subtitles. ## Version 2.0.3 (2022/06) - Fixed the problem that sometimes failed to be obtained in the part to get the next information entered in Version 2.0.2. # Known Issues It seems that macOS Catalina may fail to speak with a standard speaker. You can avoid it by setting the speaker who can make a test speech on the setting page and confirm that he can actually speak.

  • (2022-03-03) Shaun Kahler: Not bad! Does what it says it does. My only qualm is that the translations take too long between subtitles and it would be nice if it were possible to keep pace outside of increasing the read rate so high.

  • (2021-10-14) Mahyar: Awesome extension. It would be even more awesome if you could make it work with local pc videos. Like if I've downloaded a Japanese Anime with subtitles I like the subtitles to be said loud but I have to upload it on Youtube as a private video to make it happen.

  • (2021-07-01) Diego Marques: Sensational, The extension is working perfectly, I downloaded all the similar options available and this one is by far the best. I've been using the Android app for over a year, and the voice app is a little more natural than the chrome one. ---- PT-br ---- Sensacional, A extensão esta funcionado perfeitamente, baixei todas as opções similares disponíveis e essa é de longe a melhor. Já utilizo o app Android a mais de um ano, e no app voz é um pouco mais natural que no chrome.

    こちらのアドオンを使用させていただいております。 質問です。Youtubeに他の人がアップされている動画は音声読み上げされているのですが自分でアップロードをして、非公開設定にしている動画が読み上げされません。何か設定等があるのでしょうか? それとも非公開動画は非対応なのでしょうか? その動画を再生リストに入れて再生してもダメでした。お手数ですが、返信いただけると幸いです。

    I would like to say, I really like your extension. I've been looking for something that will read subtitles on youtube videos for awhile now. Can you use the default voice set in windows? I use the Ivona Voice Joey for everything, and it would be nice if this extension had this option.

  • (2021-06-10, v:1.4.3) Andrew Rasskazoff Codeman: List of voices
    Hi! Thanks for this plugin - I use it from time to time (Win10). But recently I noticed that voices of other companies such as Nuache, Ivonna are missing from the list. Now only voices from microsoft and GoogleVoice. I tried reinstalling the voices but it did not help. Can you help me with this problem? I just like those voices better. Thank you in advance. Kind regards, Andrew

  • (2020-05-04, v:1.2.3) Andre Hildebrandt: Caption Speaker for youtube
    I have been looking for a solution for reading youtube subtitles for many years. At last you are developing this chrome extension. I have tried to use it but it does not work for me and after trying many variants, the program apparently does not work. I want to encourage you to continue developing the extension so that it can be used soon. Greetings from Chile, Andre Hildebrandt
