This is a high-quality text-to-speech (TTS) voice extension that runs in your browser using Native Client technology.
Updated February 2017: uses new speech engine, no separate download required. This is a female US English text-to-speech (TTS) voice extension that runs in your browser using Native Client technology. This extension does not do anything by itself. When installed, it provides an additional voice that talking apps and extensions can use. This voice is a US English female voice, built by Google. The synthesis engine runs directly in your browser using Native Client technology - no network required. That means it's fast and responsive, suitable for accessibility applications.

- (2019-01-13) Sarsaparilla Sunset: For anyone wondering what this extension does, it is not an TTS application. It only provides a text-to-speech voice, which can be used by other TTS applications to synthesize speech. For example, if you use the excellent TTS app called "Read Aloud", after you install this Google extension, a new voice named "US English Female TTS (by Google)" will appear in the Read Aloud options. The cool thing is this voice will work even offline when you don't have internet.

- (2017-11-28) Jeff Carter: Finally got it to work with TTSReaderX In-Page Text to Speech (appears as English, US, Female). Removed and reinstalled, refreshed page I was attempting to use TTS on.
