  • (2022-02-15) Jonathan L: slow
  • (2022-02-10) Allan Carhart: After evaluating about 10 different options last night, I concluded that this is the best TTS extension available today on the Chrome Web Store. 1. Highlighting words as they are read is key to help those with attention issues retain their focus 2. The ability to skip sections is crucial. A few extensions only have play/pause. 3. This extension retained its location in the document (tested w/a Wikipedia article) better than most. And if it does lose its place, #2 (skip function) helps you get back to where you were. 4. The voice was remarkably natural, although that might be a function of what I have installed on my PC.
  • (2020-10-12) Thalha S: Simple and very useful
  • (2020-10-05) Дмитрий Журко: Beautiful. I would like to be able to choose the speed of the TTS to the limit.
  • (2020-02-25) MES S: This extension is a great addition to my computer and daily life! As I work, I can listen to articles easily! (instead of listening to the radio, for example, and get a good brainwash!). I really appreciate all the new features! Web Out Loud just gets better and better! Thank you.
  • (2019-09-24) Chris Vydas: Requires sign-up! Useless. Not mentioned anywhere in the description
  • (2019-02-05) Jason Shaverin: It first makes you sign up and once you do it says you must download an iphone app to continue. I am using this on my chrome browser and so dont want or need the app on my iphone. I cant seem to use it without downloading it so will need to uninstall. As im uninstalling, please can you delete my sign up credentials.
  • (2018-10-28) Christian Estevez: I love your extension but I wish that I could assign a more natural voice
  • (2018-10-04) Samit Patel: This extension is awesome! I find myself using it everyday at work and it's very helpful and easy to use. The developer is very responsive as well I reached out to him about an issue I was experiencing and he responded back within minutes with a fix!
  • (2016-10-14) Drewby: All it wants me to do is download their app on my phone, doesn't do its job.
  • (2016-07-09) walid u.s: it is working very good with web pages , you can use it to read pdf when view it by online app , you can use native voice on your computer or change it to google voice extension that is available on chrome web store. it will be great if the developer fix the issue related to reading text contain many links (like wikipedia) and support pdf without using online app
  • (2016-01-30) ThaS do Mato: no, there is no speaking in multiple languages, there's ONLY the 'native' option of voice. if my IP is from brazil, it will read a text in english in native portuguese. besides, it requires sign in and once you do that it requires another sign in to iOS for push notifications. it's useless.
