How to check or change the Talkie shortcut key: https://github.com/joelpurra/talkie#usage # Features ☑ Lets you listen to the selected text on any part of a page -- a short snippet or an entire news article. Just highlight what you want to hear read aloud and hit play. ☑ Automatically detects the text language per-page, and chooses a voice in the same language to match it. ☑ Privacy aware -- no unnecessary tracking or external services. # Notes ☑ Please rate the extension and leave feedback. ☑ Does not require any invasive Google Chrome permissions. ☑ Uses your browser's built-in Web Speech API for text-to-speech (TTS) known as Speech Synthesis. ☑ All text and speech is processed internally by your browser. While ultimately depending on your specific browser, all processing is expected to be done on your own machine and not use a server. ☑ Sound is only produced, never recorded. # Support Please report any problems you have, especially regarding detecting the right language. Please include relevant information: ☑ Which browser and version you are using. ☑ Which website the problem occurred on. If possible, include the full link. ☑ Which text/part of the website you want spoken. ☑ Which language the text was expected to be spoken in. ☑ Any other information you think might be relevant in tracking down the issue. # Voices The voices for each language are provided by your browser. For this reason the list may differ depending on your browser, browser version, operating system, and any other installed extensions/software. To be able to customize the voice per language, upgrade to Talkie Premium.

Latest reviews (2019-10-11) Andrew: I paid for this as it said it allowed you to control the voice and speed. When you go to change these setting it links back to the chrome web strore? I can't find a way to change any of the settings? (2019-09-05) Rosario Perez: Hola, al inicio funcionaba muy bien, pero ahora, simplemente no funciona, se inahbilita ed manera automática. (2018-04-14) Fabrice ROBIN: Trop de coupure dans le texte et donc difficile de suivre correctement. Je voudrai me faire rembourser. (2017-09-13) Youshaa Motan: Rubbish Extension! Dont waste your time with this app.
