All the options, customization and functionality make this TTS Reader the best there is on the market. It does more than just read. I was happy to support the developer of this to continue on the great work.

  • (2018-03-08) J. Steven Sarvis: This app gave me a major headache, & it didn't develop right when I installed it but much later on a completely arbitrary basis. What happened? Well a week or so ago, for absolutely no reason (I hadn't added anything new in the form of hardware, software, apps, games, not anything, except for Norton's security suite of anti-virus protection etc) any time I highlighted anything in Chrome, up popped the definition of a single word from those highlighted & strange symbols & drawings of stupid items were substituted for about 25% of all the letters of the words highlighted. And I did everything. I turned off or changed virtually everything on the Chrome page to no avail. I searched the help & forum sections of both Google, Chrome, Gmail, & for online generally & didn't see anything like this having ever happened to anyone. So, my last resort was to delete or remove extensions. I initially deleted about 12 that I figured I really didn't need. Now silly as this sounds that did seemingly reduce the number of letters that were being replace by symbols. Well I then went through & turned off another 4 or 5 extensions, but no good. My buddy who is rather opinated leaving absolutely no room for potentially being wrong on his end, would say this or that extension isn't the problem. Well the 2 batch had no impact. So I went & turned off maybe 3 or 4 more including this one. Bamm. That annoying issue which made other things difficult, like when the popup was there I couldn't copy a selection & if I "x'd" out the popup, the highlighting disappeared. A real pain. Well I went back & fiddled with the last few extensions until I narrowed it down to this one only. Oh, & my buddy said with absolute conviction and annoyance at my ignorance for not thinking I had to turn the browser off & then on again for the deleted or turned off extensions to have any impact. Well I simply refreshed the page & the problem was gone. I don't know if the addition of Norton's Security Suite may have generated some factor that caused this extension to malfunction, but up to then I'd been relying upon the security measures that simply come with Windows 10 as protection. It's firewall, Window's Defender & regular updates to keep my computer safe but I knew that wasn't enough. So if Norton which is one of the most commonly offered & used security software there is ( yeah, I know a lot of people swear by Malware Bytes & Eset, but I had the paid version of both & they are way way too expensive, & their overkill was a pain in my, ah, neck. So the much less crazy & more specifically geared to true malware & viruses Norton software is a lot easier to live with. However, I'm simply amazed that I didn't find this problem reported anywhere. I mean, it may be referenced in some forum somewhere, but people who found any references that slipped by me, are simply better people than I, & my hat goes off to them. But maybe this will help someone, or really, I hope I'm the one lone manifestation of this weird serendipity of the symptoms I developed & the the use of this extension. And perhaps this will allow the developer of the app to figure out what happened & head off any mass symptom onset, thus keeping the small bit of advertising dollars & contributions from users to keep streaming his/her way. I wish everyone well & happy computing. Byeee.
  • (2018-02-15) Ryan Finley: Unlike every other TTS extension I've tried, this is very reliable and almost completely free from annoying bugs and quirks. In a utopian world it would be cool to have more customization features for nerds like me, but for a free extension this is great.
  • (2018-01-16) Ricardo Ettia: Very nice
  • (2018-01-13) Tee Dub: Hands down the best TTS reader for Chrome!! I especially Love the option to highlight the paragraph being read as it progresses. Doesn't natively read all Aricles (on different websites though, but offers an option to request the site's template to be added), however, you can simply overcome that by highlighting the text to be read and using the "Read selected text" option.
  • (2017-12-10) Roland Ashlander: 太好用了
  • (2017-09-23) Travis Crump: Best TTS extension I have used. Reads large amounts of text and the Google UK voice sounds very natural

    Is there anything I can do to install the TTS reader extension under my school G Suite account. I contacted Google and they suggested contacting you. According to Google, I have the required services turned on. But when I look at this extension under my @sbrsd.org account I get a gray Try Now button with no ability to click on it. But when I try to install under my personal account there is no issue. Has anyone run into this before?

  • (2018-12-19, v:0.3.19) Jeff: Problem with Japanese language TTS
    Got the app for reading Japanese. It works well for every other language I've tried--English, Spanish, Chinese. But with Japanese it stops abruptly in varying places in any selection. This happens both with the pop-up or when reading based on the pull-down menu (article, from here, etc). Sometimes it stops after a few words, sometimes after a several sentences. Even if I start again selecting the same text, it stops in exactly in the same place. It does it almost every time no matter what website or font it's reading. Anyway, I find the app very useful, but for this annoying problem. Thanks!
