- Rated 1 out of 5by b b b b bb b, 2 months agoThis add-on claims to have "offline" voices which are "never sent to the internet".
However if you block access to the servers it contacts using a firewall:
1) You can see tons of access sent to "support.readaloud.app" and "chart.googleapis.com"
2) The text to speech stops working entirely. It won't read at all and says "Phone not connected". You can't even use the example offline test voice in configurations panel.
How is this even remotely offline if it can't work when not connected to the internet and their servers in particular?

1) right click extension icon and open options
2)change voice to GoogleTranslate English (scroll all the way to the bottom of the dropdown menu)
3)you'll be prompted to sign in; simply make a free account
4)you'll also be prompted to grant permissions for the call to google translate

- Rated 5 out of 5by AndyUpNorth, 3 months agoWorks well, but sadly only when I'm connected to WiFi. When I'm using cellphone data, it doesn't read anything. I wish they would fix this problem. Then I would give it 5 stars and recommend it to everyone I know!
I contacted their tech support and they told me to change the settings from auto voice to English, and now it works! Highly recommended! Changing my rating to 5 stars!

Keşke seslendirmesi daha doğal olsaydı ama bu da işinizi görüyor.
