- par eUROs, il y a 3 ansNoté 3 sur 5I installed this addon just because it says it could do Text-To-Speech.
My main language is Greek and It can translates very well. It does the translation part great.
But I downloaded it for other purpose, which does not work as expected.
I am trying to make it speak one English paragraph for me from one website.
It translates the english paragraph into Greek, and it acan read the greek Text when I click the sound icon. BUT it can not read the english text. When I put it english to english and I click the "sound" icon, it automatically takes me to another website with such a URL address: (http://text-to-speech.imtranslator.net/speech.asp?dir=en&text=Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this website to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages). And when I click the <> button, It gets me this warning: "The voice function is available only through ImTranslator extension for Firefox. Download ImTranslator for Firefox". which I have already Installed this addon in my Firefox. Hey!! what is going on?
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13716040 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansNoté 3 sur 5More or less useful, but in some language combinations (e.g. French -> German) it gives only one word as translation (from Google and Microsoft) and as we all know, a word has almost never just one translation. Given more translations, an intelligent reader is able to choose the translation that matches best.
This is maybe not the fault of imTranslator but of the underlying dictionary machines, but unfortunately, this way, I cannot recommend it to my pupils at school.
