  • (2020-01-19) Tekkie: After using this natural reader text I am happy with the extension.
  • (2020-01-18) RedneckTravisMusic & More: the voices didn't necessarily read what i selected very smoothly or clearly and didn't sound very natural.
  • (2020-01-13) I Nu: Muy bueno, hace lo que dice y lee desde la nota y no todos los menús, eso es bueno, lo malo es que de repente se detiene y tienes que adelantarle para que siga pero en general muy bien!
  • (2020-01-13) Marc-André Tousignant: Good extension! Auto-scroll should be added. It could be a really good feature for this extension.
  • (2020-01-11) WhereDaHottiesAt: The voices are really good but the reader keeps stopping maybe 30 seconds in, it just cuts off
  • (2020-01-09) Time4Learning Is Fun: I used this for my school projects, It was fine until the voices were saying stuff too fast at 1 speed! I recommend you actually get ReadAloud chrome extension instead.
  • (2020-01-07) Joseph Kreifels II: Sucks. It just starts reading from the top of a webpage and eventually fails. A better extension would be to read only what is highlighted.
  • (2020-01-05) Binyam A: I already buy natural readers years ago for my PC I am enjoying it when i need it, i used to have a great time with the android app also somehow that one stops I wonder if this also work in Android Chrome as Chrome extension i have to try that, now it comes as Chrome extension I'm thrilled to see it, No Doubt it is useful and magnificent work thank you so much!!!
  • (2019-12-26) Dav Spe: I very much like this app, The voices sounds quite natural, both the pronunciation of words and also the flow of the reading is quite nice. However, there are sadly several that sounds very mechanical and "hacky". Most often it's the female voices that sound, no offence, horrible. Also, the function that is suppose to highlight the text doesn't work for me.
  • (2019-12-15) ClassyDavid W: My review has two parts. The first part is that I feel that this product misrepresents itself. The second part is that the product itself in unsatisfactory. Immediately after clicking the add to chrome button, my computer gave me a notification that Natural Reader will always automatically run when the computer turns on, and that it would continue running even when chrome is closed! I wanted a chrome extension, not a whole program! I can't figure out where it was installed on my computer now! I removed the extension from chrome, but I don't know if it is still installed elsewhere on my computer. When I went to use Natural Reader, it mixed up the order of the paragraphs on the webpage. It also put a pause between every word, even when it was set to be almost max speed!
  • (2019-12-10) Igor Y: Dishonest company! They promise the world and deliver nothing. The support is there as long as you are not asking why promised features do not work. After that my messages are ignored and i paid for a premium package. Go with other company.
  • (2019-12-08) Xarly Rodriguez: dejen más voces en el gratuito y no limiten el uso de la aplicación. De lo contrario la desinstalaré!
  • (2019-12-07) Hamed Taheri: this extension is an astonishingly useful.
  • (2019-12-04) Pierce White: Great app. Can you get it to narrate only selected text instead of the entire page?
  • (2019-12-01) Sponer Spok: i really like Matthew voice(the best voice in my opinion but you should add a flowating window for the player as TextAid from ReadSpecker and Capti have .
  • (2019-11-19) Tim Ngoc: Awesome! Seems like I was looking for this only. I could listen to a book with a few clicks.
  • (2019-11-17) Decoy Gaming: Excellent! This is exactly what I needed in order to have text-to-speech with my preferred feed reader
  • (2019-11-15) Zoli Emery: I thought this was an alright program i wish there was the option to change voices in the middle of it speaking.
  • (2019-11-14) Aftab Hossain: Amazing reading tool for students. Get your reading done faster, anywhere.
  • (2019-11-13) AATH 8D SONG: i really like this extension, very good and so useful. it help me to my working time and i was easy to finish my work.
  • (2019-11-13) Emon Ahmed Sanglap: I use every day, I love it!!! Needs improvement, but it's the most useful app I ever bought, well designed, great work guys!!!!
  • (2019-11-02) Jr jr: Excellent ... congratulations! Thanks.
  • (2019-11-01) Ronald Grant: I have never reviewed any extentions, but this one I hsimply had to. Just used it for the first time and it is bloody amazing. It is good enough to skip over the adds and the junk on some websites. Speech engine is really good.
  • (2019-10-31) Eternal Goddess: Good extension, but the audio cuts off half-way, some are mispronounced. I usually use this to read long synopsis of animes and it tends to mispronounce the names and even if I switch to Japanese, it reads the rest of the English words in a rather hard-to-understand accent.
  • (2019-10-31) Anis Mahat: it is absolutely an amazing extension. we could expect a very bright future for this tool.
