- (2019-12-12) Ulysses Omycron: This extension is a MUST have! Why? Because even if you don't use it, after installing it it adds IBM Voices to Chrome, which means you can use those voices in other TTS Extensions that allow you to change Pitch and Volume. The reason I don't use it is because I need one that keeps reading while I do other stuff in Chrome, but this one stops reading when I click inside another Window or Tab :( - But I still rate it 5 stars because it's the only one that offers these high quality voices so I click the Icon and choose turn off and I have access to them in other applications :D

- (2019-06-28) Trisha Cunningham: Recently the workings of the extension seem to not work as well (this week, and today). For indented bullet items the extension read them as though they were all an ongoing sentence. It would be great to have greater customization the ability to select what's to be read if possible. I also wish you worked on anything displayed within a Chrome tab. Fingers crossed that can come.
- (2019-06-05) Espaços Leste: Tudo muito bom, falta apenas ter um campo onde jogamos o texto e ele le
- (2018-12-02) Bud Fredrick: Worked great until a few days ago when the highlighted text started to turn red and no audio.
- (2018-11-13) Víctor Venegas P.: Aunque no es tan versátil como la extensión SpeakIt! 0.2.997, recientemente deshabilitada por Google, cumple su cometido. Darle la capacidad para que seleccione texto a pedido -desde una única palabra hasta varios párrafos-, y lo lea, la haría merecedora de más estrellas. Después de todo, el punto es poder escuchar un texto mientras uno hace otras cosas, sin necesidad de permanecer todo el tiempo frente al PC. Although it is not as versatile as SpeakIt! 0.2,997, recently disabled by Google, it does the work. Give her the ability to select text on demand -from a single word to several paragraphs-, and reading it, make it worthy of more stars. After all, the point is to listen to a text while I do other things, without staying all the time in front of the PC.
- (2018-10-04) Congratulations on your job.
- (2018-05-16) Hans Fritz: EXCELENTE
- (2018-03-20) Johnson Lin: I love it. But could you disable your 'console.log' in production version please?
- (2018-01-29) Игорь Анисимов: работет!!
- (2018-01-21) Mika S: add pause and add russian(yandex speakit!) thx!)
- (2018-01-07) INGO MBS: the best tts
- (2017-12-31) Николай Михайлов: на пять
- (2017-10-29) Bill Brunelle: Sofar, the best one I've used yet. I will keep this one.It is perfect!
- (2017-09-18) Kamel Takla: The great software. Keep the updates coming.
- (2017-05-17) Kristin Clark: This APP is amazing. The voice is great, the inflection is almost natural. Its very easy to use. My high school student is dyslexic, and this APP makes doing research possible. THANK YOU for this awesome APP.
- (2017-04-11) Ebi Sadeghi: uعالی هستش
- (2017-04-11) Edina Menje: I downloaded this extension for the option to set the voice to female, but it keeps switching to the default male voice even in the middle of a paragraph. The switching gets to be jarring and annoying.
- (2017-03-04) Mansoor Ghalib: love this app.
- (2017-01-27) foxy: Please can you do something about click to speech for a few days now I get a message to say. (Invalid licence click to go to Ispeech.org For a licence .What does it mean ?
- (2017-01-24) Maureen TMC: Love it when it work but the things going nuts please fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- (2016-11-30) Steve Blake: Most excellent output. I set the voice speed to 1.3x and it sounded excellent. With that said, on occasion, a "different voice" is produced and there is a very noticeable difference in the pronunciation of certain words. I realize this "should" be using the same database but an obvious change takes place for a short period of time.
- (2016-11-12) tesu to: iSpeechしか動作しない。読み上げ文字数が少なすぎる。
- (2016-10-28) Automatically uses the browser language, regardless of the language of the content.
- (2016-10-27) Ichigo S-Guranto: Does a great job reading web pages by auto-highlighting and selecting the paragraphs as well as manually selecting what i desire to read. It can even read posts such as messages i may get in a chat, e.g.: evernote or G+! The iSpeak female voice is the best and quite natural!! The customization features for voice and speech are great! I only wish that i could change the highlight color as i cannot read in the highlighted reading color. Plus the voice switches from time to time which is freaky! Meanwhile, Keep up the fab work! :D
- (2020-02-07, v:1.5.8) John Gaines: Great extension...
I love this extension, it helping me so mush with school work. I wish I had this when I was younger! Is to train the voice AI to recognize subscript? Generally if there is subscript notation the speech engine will interpret the text as "dot 1" for instance not recognizing the period and running the sentence into the next. Not a deal breaker mind you, just gets confusing at times.
- (2019-06-28, v:1.5.8) Trisha Cunningham: Recent functionality problems; specific example: bullet points
Recently the workings of the extension seem to not work as well (this week, and today). For indented bullet items the extension read them as though they were all an ongoing sentence.
- (2019-05-17, v:1.5.8) Trisha Cunningham: Use: in window pdf documents
Hello, I am in love with your extension but sometimes find it doesn't work. For example when I have a tab with a pdf open to read. QUESTION: is there a way I'm not aware of to have this extension read pdfs when they are in a chrome tab window? Thank you!
- (2019-02-14, v:1.5.7) Ichigo S-Guranto: Suddenly cuts off
The TTS will read a few lines of some paragraphs before cutting off halfway through a word and turning the selected paragraph red before de-selecting the text. When it does work, the word by word highlight lags behind by 1 or 2 words spoken. Does anyone else have this issue??? Please fix! :)
- (2019-01-29, v:1.5.7) Kalen Grant: Google Forms (Quiz in Locked mode)
When a quiz is given in Google Forms (quiz) Locked mode, the extension does not work. When given in unlocked mode, the extension works fine.
- (2018-10-22, v:1.5.6) Hang bővítés
Kedves Zsolt! Megoldható lenne hogy a program tartalmazzon magyar nyelvű hangot is? Nagyon hiányzik!
- (2018-06-09, v:1.5.4) Sports Injuries And Rehabilitation: 67.0.3396.79 chrome version - problem
Hi Thanks for the wonderful app. For the past one week google english voice was not working properly and the chrome browser hang up one the click2speech app is activated.
- (2018-04-26, v:1.5.4) Background color is too dark
This is the BEST chrome extension TTS. But could you please change the background dark blue color during reading (speech) mode to somethings lighter color. It make easier for old folks like me, to follow the text on the monitor. Thanks
- (2018-03-21, v:1.5.4) Sue Lewis: Google Docs and PDF
I love it for all web based articles but it doesn't work in Google docs (but I think it did at one time) or with PDFs
