  • (2020-01-10) Roman Pavlík: Stále nefunkční Does not work
  • (2019-12-28) Профессор Фортран: Расширение не работает! Никакие танцы с бубном не помогают. Друзья, если вы - пользователь windows 10 и хотите преобразовать текст в речь, то вам не нужны никакие расширения! Просто введите в своём поиске (поиске компьютера, кликнув на значок лупы в нижнем правом углу) "экранный диктор" или "голос", далее выберите соответствующий параметр. Ни или самое простое: зажмите клавиши ctrl + windows и не отпуская нажмите Enter. Включится преобразователь текста в речь, тот самый экранный диктор. У него много голосов, читает практически любой текст, на который вы наведёте курсор. А расширение это - неработающая ерунда, только жрёт ОЗУ.
  • (2019-12-14) Camille Douillet: Ne fonctionne pas du tout chez moi. Aucun son.
  • (2019-12-07) Shaina Neely: It's wonderful but the voice is weird.

  • (2019-11-20) Batuhan AKTAŞ: I tried many times. It doesn't work. Also developers don't work i guess. This extension doesn't work since years...

  • (2019-11-14) 葉德倫: 沒聲音,沒反應
  • (2019-11-13) Jeffrey Wong: Free version was good. Now I have to pay a monthly fee to keep the features I once had. No thanks.
  • (2019-11-04) Kerwin Ross: Test the extension reading this line 'There is no manual intervention in provisioning or deprovisioning services.' Hence I didn't like it.
  • (2019-10-29) Dagmar Zárubová: zatím dobré..
  • (2019-10-22) みうラスT: 全く動作しない。
  • (2019-10-19) mark doughty: Cant upgrade even though they have taken payment? highlighted text speak does not work? Voice breaks unnecessarily at end of line instead of end of sentence. Web site contact page does not work? Need i say more.
  • (2019-10-17) Милана Фан: Не работает
  • (2019-10-16) Martha Granbania: 1㍉も読み上げてくれません。詐欺アプリです。購入しないように注意してください。
  • (2019-10-15) Erik: Vůbec nefunguje (Does not work at all)
  • (2019-10-10) Max Rempel: The free version is very limited. The voice is pleasant but the pronunciation of many words is poor. As of 2019, there are much better voices around. The pronunciation from "Read Aloud: a text to speech voice reader" extension is way more advanced, it has much fewer mispronounced words. Also the above named ReadAloud has a moving highlight of sentences.
  • (2019-10-06) Aleksandr Knyshov: откуда у этого УГ такой нормальный рейтинг? оно ж тупо немое и не работает!
  • (2019-09-24) Celso Jacó: Além de só ler quando tem vontade , fica limitado a um parágrafo por dia
  • (2019-09-24) Ami Mar: not working useless do not install/ scam
  • (2019-09-17) Alexander Schikora: Geht nicht mehr.
  • (2019-09-11) Claudio MD: dejo de funcionar..
  • (2019-09-05) Carey Lefebvre: So far so good. I've used other text to speech extensions and this is one of the better ones. First, it works, which is a big deal as some others didn't work. Second, you can select which text to read or have it read the whole page. Lastly, you can change female/male voice and speed, but that's it. You apparently need another app to get more voices, which I will not do.
