  • (2018-08-20) Bryan Myers: As a sighted web developer I couldn't get this to do anything when it was enabled. If I were blind it would be impossible to activate... even if that did anything.
  • (2018-06-06) Brad Johnson: no instructions!
  • (2017-11-29) Daubney Thielking: There's no instructions. I can't figure out how to work it.
  • (2017-08-30) Daniel Beaudoin: I can't vote this one way or another. There isn't enough information in the description to tell how to use it. The <track> element it says to enable in Chrome://flags isn't there. And there is no intuitive way to figure out how to get it to read anything. Too bad. This kind of extension could be useful. :(
