- by Firefox user 14629546, 2 months agoRated 3 out of 5I really like the user interface and how a reader can easily select a sentence. There are options for changing the speed, too. I don't like that I can only use system voices (which on my device are terrible). Additionally, it sometimes skips around on the page, but refreshing helps that.
- by squidbeaksplatoon, 8 months agoRated 3 out of 5I downloaded this since my professor recommended it as a text-to-speech program, but lately (after the latest bug fix update) sentences will begin cut off. Like it will completely cut out the first word of every sentence and go from there. This is amazing when it works, but unfortunately for me this is too big a flaw to be using it as of right now.
- by KnOwlEdge, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Despite the limited selection of voices and no access to Google Cloud TTS (like Read Aloud does), I prefer this to Read Aloud because this lets you personalize the Shortcuts, it scrolls the page, it highlights the text, it starts reading from where I click (IF it was reading already).
EDIT: I was too quick in my test.
Skipping text via any of the available options (shortcuts or the transport keys in the menu which opens when you click on the icon on the top bar) is NOT working.
As soon as you use any button, the addon gets crazy and start reading the same line or going forth and back, also in complete de-sync with the highlighted text.
And whatever key is assigned to the "play/pause" function, it only works while the Addons Menu is open, otherwise it doesn't. Also, Space, the key universally used for Play/Pause of any media content, can't be assigned to this function.
