  • (2019-01-07) Eugene E: I've been using this extension for a long time. Really like it. Recently noticed that the standard female voice has been replaced with a male's one. Still robotic, but way better. I experience the sheer joyousness of using it! Currently, solid 4 out of 5. Hope there is room for improvment.

  • (2017-10-07, v:1.1) Plamen Parvanov: very good
    Very good idea! It would be great if you put option for British and American IPA. And yes keep the popup as simple as possible.
  • (2016-07-27, v:1.1) Tarık S: ɜː problem and length feature
    A very useful extension but it has two main problems 1) it shows us the schwa (ə) symbol in place of (ɜː) sound 2) there is no length (:) feature which is one of the key aspects of pronunciation.
  • (2016-05-16, v:1.1) Khalid Mammadov: British English
    Is there British english version of this?
  • (2016-05-12, v:1.1) Amir Jaberzadeh: stress support
    I like your extension but I would be happy to see stresses available in the pop up bubble.
  • (2016-01-25, v:1.1) Geneva Felice: Will not open
    I've added this to my computer and every time I try to click on the icon, it will not open. How can I uninstall it from my computer? I added it to my Chrome and it will not even show me that I added the app. Please advise. Thank you!
