  • (2021-05-05) Justin Muller: Registrierung war nicht möglich nach Umleitung von dem Plugin, musste das separat im Internet suchen. Nach der Registrierung wollte ich mich anmelden aber sie Seite wurde fortan nicht mehr gefunden, wenn ich auf das Play Symbol des Plug-ins gedrückt habe wurde ich auch nicht mehr zum Login-screen geschickt sondern zur Registrierung, warum? Naja Log-in war nicht möglich und somit dieses Plug-in leider sinnlos

  • (2019-12-10) blax888: ne fonctionne pas
  • (2019-05-25) Mathys Imbert: Ne marche pas malgré avoir suivi toutes les étapes
  • (2018-11-23) Kor Bras: Een onwijs handige plugin in combinatie met mijn TextAid abonnement. Ik kan eenvoudig websites, maar ook google docs voor laten lezen en nakijken. De stemmen zijn prettig om naar te luisteren. En ze geven goede support op de tool :)
  • (2018-10-18) Nizar: Overall: Great product but unfortunately very limited. Text to speech: Very easy to listen to and has great flow. It doesn't seem to struggle much with reading punctuated acronyms as other available solutions. Utility: Works well with a all web pages and content types, as long as it is text of course, that I have tried. Registration: Requires an account to to use. Neither sign in with Google nor Microsoft accounts worked for me. The sign in page didn't link to any account registration page or form at the time of writing this. However, a quick Google search solved the issue and I was automatically logged in to the extension after confirming the email that I registered my new account with. Interaction: The utility becomes available as a small and movable dialog box overlay, after activating by clicking on the extension icon, and all the functionalities and configurations are placed within it. Limitations: The extension doesn't start reading out loud automatically upon activation, nor does it seem to remember it's last used position on the screen.The text to be read must be selected by the user before pressing the "Play" or "Listen" button. Once text is selected and the "Play" button is pressed, the extension takes a brief couple of seconds to load and start reading it. However, it only reads the first 130 words of the selected text, which is very unfortunate as I no intention of using it to read out tweets. Pricing: I was offered a free trial upon signing up for the service, October 18, to use it free of charge until November 1 or until I have used it 2000 times, which is a nice offer. Two package options are offered at reasonable prices. The basic package costs for € 49 for 12 months and the complete complete package costs € 89 for 12 months. The complete package adds extra features such as OCR conversion and the ability to download audio and choosing between a few additional voices.

  • (2018-08-15) Jarno Aantjes: Great tool! I use it together with my ReadSpeaker TextAid license, and the TextAid for Chrome extension lets me listen to my Google Docs & WordOnline files with the click of a button, I love it!

  • (2022-10-21, v:1.2.14) Patrick Hargitt: Text to speech speed and languages
    I have been looking for a new text to speech tool and it looks this is a stable solution. However, there are two short comings and wanted to know if I am missing something: 1. Ability to speak at more than 2x speed. I usually listen at around 2.5x to 3.5x. 2. Ability to read Greek - Greek voice and translation (I live in Greece, but have limited Greek language knowledge so this will help greatly) Thanks, P.
  • (2020-12-04, v:1.2.6) Tom Wijmans: Extentie blijft vragen om in te loggen op TextAid account
    Als ik de extentie wil gebruiken, blijft deze aangeven dat ik deze extentie alleen kan gebruiken als ik ben ingelogd op mijn TextAid account. Zelfs als ik text selecteer van de omgeving van mijn textAid account, wil de extentie dat ik inlog, terwijl ik dat al lang ben. Eerst werkte het goed, maar toen ik mijn proefperiode verlengde door naar een betaalde account te gaan, werkt het niet meer. Ik heb de extentie al opnieuw geinstalleerd, zelfs compleet mijn laptop gereboot, maar niets helpt.
  • (2020-10-04, v:1.2.6) Luna Nelson: Nothing happens
    Was pointed to this extension from the canvas website for my school. Running the chrome extension on my chromebook. Nothing happens when I click on the extension to use it. Nothing pops up at all. Is there something else I am supposed to be doing??

    Es funktioniert einfach nicht ! Ich bin angemeldet ! Warum ist so etwas einfaches so kompliziert ???
  • (2018-06-19, v: Lotte T.O.K.: het doet niet

    Message Reads: "You need either be logged in to Chrome browser with a user allowed for this extension or be logged in to TextAid." We are logged in to both.
