Speaks aloud text in web pages
Free extension with a few Premium features, see below.
Speak any text on a website by selecting it, point with the mouse to hear text and links and captions, or click Play to hear sentences read out with highlighting to let you keep track of where you are.
Read Google Docs documents back to you so you can proof your work and fix any errors.
Speak accessible PDFs opened in Google Chrome with highlighting by clicking the Play button.
Hear letters, words or sentences spoken back as you type. Simply type in to web pages and hear what you type as you type it. For letters, hear the letter names or sounds spoken back to you, whichever helps you understand better.
Turn on a coloured overlay so pages are tinted to the colour you find easiest to read - no more glaring black on white text.
Change the speed of the spoken voice, slower for comprehension, faster for efficiency.
Activate word prediction to help you with writing and composition - find that elusive word you want. Now includes subject-specific prediction dictionaries and larger base dictionaries!
Read the contents of Google Docs extensions aloud so your support tools speak.
Select from English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, or Chinese voices. Or use a selection of voices installed on your computer - just select the voice in your computer's settings.
