  • (2021-06-06) Bianca F: Well first, what every one is saying about the tabs is true. But more importantly it can't read a paragraph to me with out stoping, mid sentence too. Its very annoying, I'm going to look for something else.
  • (2021-05-06) Christopher Cole: *** BEWARE - THIS IS WILL HIJACK YOUR BROWSER *** Uninstalled and reported for bad privacy practices. Long time user, but there is no way I will install this on my computer again. Browser hijacking is a form of unwanted software that modifies a web browser's settings without a user's permission, to inject unwanted advertising into the user's browser. A browser hijacker may replace the existing home page, error page, or search engine with its own. - Wikipedia : Browser Hijacking (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Browser_hijacking) Stay away from this extension because it will change your search engine to coolsearch. There are plenty of alternatives for text to speech in 2021 - just search the store for a better extension that will not hijack your browser.
  • (2021-04-30) Ruben Ruiz: Vine a quejarme aqui en comentarios que cambio la voz y no me da la opcion de ponerle la voz anterior que me agradaba más, ademas de que se corta el dictado a la mitad del texto, entro aqui y me doy cuenta que a los demas tambien les roba informacion usando el buscador, me imagino: coolsearch.net y yo que queria recomendar esta extensión...
  • (2021-01-28) R3D SM0KE: ES UN ESTUPIDO VIRUS NO LO DESCARGEEEN NO LO HAGAN
  • (2020-12-15) Final Shorts: Reads only 20 words then stops. a little useful tho
  • (2020-12-04) prissy dimacs: Simple, good paced, clear
  • (2020-10-16) Amol Bhangare: forced override to change default search engine spoiled it. Greed isn't good
  • (2020-10-16) Ross Davis: Was great but now you must change your default search engine from Google. I want my Google, so it's gotta go!
  • (2020-10-14) Justyn F: This extension has become malicious. Changed my search engine to a sketchy site, and by force and without user consent. Read other reviews..
  • (2020-10-10) Caleb Ferguson: It functions great! But what ruins it is that it is forcing me to use a search engine I don't want.
  • (2020-10-07) Kyle Stanton: was five starts until their permissions changed and it no longer works on google chrome.
  • (2020-10-01) Robert V: Nope. YOu demand I change my search provider. Hell no. Goodbye after a year. Permissions Change your search settings to: coolsearch.net
  • (2020-09-30) Asociación de Afectados HeroQuest 25 Aniversario: ES COMO VENDER TU ALMA AL DIABLO. Ahora si quieres usar la app que antes era más libre, tendrás que dejar que te secuestren el navegador y tengas que usar su buscador. Nos quejamos de google, pero por lo menos es una sola empresa grande y conocida. Esta es otra gente que te obliga a usar el suyo.
  • (2020-09-30) Afshin Faridjoo: This was good for a while but they pulled a fast one and started changing your browser search engine. That wasn't cool at all..
  • (2020-09-30) Miguel Martín: Lo han cambiado, y ahora te obliga a usar otro buscador. No se si es un virus. Al desinstalar el speakit se acaba el problema y te deja volver a usar tu buscador. Lo han cambiado de golpe. La aplicación buena era la antigua que le pagabas lo que quisieses y te daba el servicio. Esta pagas dándole tus datos de uso e incluso más datos como te descuides,
  • (2020-09-30) Liam Friesen: Update: a couple of days later, this deceitful little program disables itself and now "requires" permission to _set my search engine_ to "coolsearch.net". The extension refuses to work until such permission is granted. Wow. This is practically malware. 1 Star is too many. Original review: -------------- Excellent little program for quick one-word pronunciation checking (which is what I personally use it for). One notable glitch is that regardless of whether the Male or Female voice is selected in the menu, the voice is always male. I do appreciate that the extension rarely (so far, never) requests any access to my website information, as that access is not required to speak a highlighted word. I applaud software design that only requests the minimum permissions required to function.
  • (2020-09-29) Mara D: Ahora me obliga a usar su buscador. Aparece sombreado el selector de buscadores y no me deja cambiar la configuración. ¿Es un virus?
  • (2020-09-29) Marcelo de Gois: Era ótimo, agora exige que altermos o buscador ao invés do Google. Ficou muito ruim.
  • (2020-09-29) Manni: The extension was working fine, been using it for a year with no problem, very happy. However, IDK if others are experiencing the same issue, but all of the sudden, the extension is prompting me to change the search engine to coolsearch.net . I feel like this extension has been compromised.
  • (2020-09-29) zap: Do not get this extension it will switch your default browser to Bing. Other than that would be a great extension but had to uninstall because of Bing.
  • (2020-09-29) Melissa de Oliveira Guirelli: Era ótimo, agora exige que usemos um site estranho como buscador ao invés do Google. Ficou muito ruim. It was great, now it requires us to use a strange website as a search engine instead of Google. It got really bad.
  • (2020-09-29) Icaro: Vulnera mi privacidad. Obliga a usar su buscador modificando el chrome. No me deja usar google, que me lo ha cambiado en la barra del buscador por coolsearch
  • (2020-09-29) Miguel M.S.: Excelente, si no fuese porque te impone el uso de un buscador concreto. coolsearch.net Tal y como lo tenía colgado como recomendado en la web, editaré la publicación criticandolo. Gracias por el servicio prestado pero aprecio mucho mas mi privacidad para otorgarle a un buscador más. (google ya se que tiene mis datos, pero coolsearch.net no le daré esa opción)
  • (2020-09-29) William Cadwallader: Such a disappointment, was a great tool until it started forcing me to use some cool-search engine instead of my preferred google. Up until this point, you could just right click text and select Speak It and it would read it to you. I guess ill be looking around for another one now.
  • (2020-09-29) Brady: Changes your search engine to theirs and redirects so spammy links, do not download this!!!
  • (2020-09-29) Matt Grane: This is not a good extension. I wish it should not be in Chrome.
  • (2020-09-29) Jesse Locke: UPDATE: 9/29/2020 [Day 1] - From 5 stars to 1 star in just under 2 years. Downgraded to one star. It should be zero. An update to the extension REQUIRES me to use Google as my toolbar search option. If you disable the option the extension is no longer available. So I changed extensions. I'm now using "Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice Reader" and it's as good or better than what I was using. This is looking really good so far [day one]. I've only been using it for a few minutes so that's not much of a review window but compared to everything else free, with the exception of the no longer functioning, or at least not properly, "SpeakIt!" extension. Not many voice options but I'm grateful all the same. To work I go. Thanks guys.
  • (2020-09-29) ave2833: Приложение хорошее. Но, в последнее время стало самопроизвольно выключаться.
  • (2020-09-29) Derek Michaelis: Was amazing until it just decided it wanted to force its stupid search engine on new tabs, which does not offer speech to text search options. (The main reason I open a new tab is to ask a quick question and since I am a slow typer I almost always use Google's new tab speech to text search.) When messing with a product that over 100,000 people use to read for them, you should make it optional because a lot of people who use a program to read for them are probably not the fastest typers. I don't care if it asks if you want to switch each time you use it but there should at least be an option to use another search engine. And if not provide an option to switch then at least provide your own speech to text search on your new tabs. Before this force switch happened I was a proud user of this extension and recommended it to several friends. But after this switch this extension has truly irritated me.
  • (2020-09-29) William Fraser: Was ok before it tried to force my search settings to coolsearch in order to use the add on...
  • (2020-07-20) Bruh ster: can't get the female voice to work :/
  • (2020-07-07) Flávia Galdinna: Facilita muito a vida de quem tem textos extensos para ler, e tem a possibilidade de mudar a velocidade em que é lido.
  • (2020-06-24) Georgios Labos: The only bug i hate is the "female" voice for english doesn't work. Whatever i choose "male" or "female" the voice is male. Fix it if possible thank you :)
  • (2020-03-24) Rune Thorsen: Doesn't work with google documents
  • (2020-03-08) dick rowilson becerra herrera: se corta el audio
  • (2020-03-06) Omar Rodríguez: Inmediata y personalizable. Perfecta!
  • (2020-02-06) Dursun Birinci: Türkçe seçeneği yok
  • (2020-01-31) Vivian Le: One of the better TTS extensions. It reads fast enough compared to other TTS extensions that don't
  • (2020-01-26) Jose A Resamano E.: se corta a medio leer el texto.
  • (2020-01-04) Flausbert: works without problem and interruption. Thank you
  • (2020-01-01) Chris Randle: Works as it promises to. Uses basic TTS engine in Chrome, but works on already open tabs without having to be reloaded. They are great!
  • (2019-11-08) Javiera Yañez: Me parece muy buena porque la lectura es fluida, aunque el Speak It antiguo era mejor.
  • (2019-10-02) vaibhav kaushik: It works only for few sentences only not even one full paragraph or a page. Developers kindly look into in this bug. Please add Hindi language for Indians.
  • (2019-09-26) Emiaj Aragrev: Lee un poco y se corta. BASURA!!! Google elimino SpeakIt antiguo. Era el unico que funcionaba muy bien
  • (2019-08-22) Tiaan Fourie: The text-to-speech extensions are terrible. Speak It is by far the best the Chrome Store has to offer, though it has its bugs.
  • (2019-07-18) Timothy Mcfadden: This extension will steal your data. Google need to do a better job protecting people. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/07/dataspii-technical-deep-dive/
  • (2019-05-26) Clare Garcia: Didn't work
  • (2019-05-20) PPP AAA: It didn't work at all.
  • (2019-04-02) Lyndon Bramwells: Reads 20ish words then stops
  • (2019-03-06) I Salman: Thank you
