What is Read Aloud Extension?

You can choose from many available male and female voices. You can also set the pitch of the voice and the reading speed. Supports PDF.

Text-to-speech (TTS) is an assistive technology that reads digital text aloud. It’s sometimes called “read aloud” technology. With a click of a button or the touch of a finger, TTS can take words on a computer or other digital device and convert them into audio. TTS is very helpful for kids who struggle with reading. But it can also help kids with writing and editing, and even focusing.

How Text-to-Speech Works TTS works with nearly every personal digital device, including computers, smartphones and tablets. All kinds of text files can be read aloud, including Word and Pages documents. Even online web pages can be read aloud.

The voice in TTS is computer-generated, and reading speed can usually be sped up or slowed down. Voice quality varies, but some voices sound human. There are even computer-generated voices that sound like children speaking.

Many TTS tools highlight words as they are read aloud. This allows kids to see text and hear it at the same time.

Said about Read Aloud Extension as an alternative


Read Aloud is a free extension for different browsers + there is an app for Android. Has free and premium voices (that can also be accessed for free using a Google account). You can customize speed, pitch, voices, make it detect the text language automatically, read the whole page or just a selection, customize keyboard shortcuts, etc. For me, THE BEST.
