I adore this program Betygsatt 4 utav 5 stjärnor
The UK female voice is the best of any I've found anywhere. Only docked one star cuz the male voice is the same as used in Go Animate, not quite good enough; but ViJo's UK male voice in his Speechify is far better.
BUT THIS program itself is better. You paint the text, right-click or use the add-on bar or the icon in Customize (which you can move anywhere), to 'Speak It'. Some minutes pass while the thing renders, and when the voice starts, you;'ll notice you can DOWNLOAD the thing as mp3. Max running is about 90 minutes. You can convert a pdf to txt and it reads best that way. I did it with John Skylitzes (medieval historian of the Byz empire) and many scholarly docs. So I can lay back and listen, think. VALUABLE, this program.
I use it a lot, sample here: http://brainout.net/frankforum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=706&p=3598#p3598
I hope ViJo will upgrade this, instead of using Speechify, as frankly this thingy is a gold mine. Or should be.
I contributed, and will keep on doing so, especially if the UK male voice in Speechify is ported to Text To Voice.
NOTHING like it on the internet, I've been searching for years.
Greeat Extension! Betygsatt 4 utav 5 stjärnor
This extension is so useful to me and the voice is very natural. For some reason (I have Firefox 53.0.3 ) recently, I can't see the download button anymore, but I just click on the lower border of the window where it used to be, then it downloads. Everything else about this extension is highly recommendable. Of course, the buffering speed could be faster, but it's worth the wait.Denna användare har en tidigare recension för detta tillägg.
review update and fix, best text to speech for firefox Betygsatt 5 utav 5 stjärnor
my previous review I said you couldnt save the speech and there was no stop button but there is. It opens in a small window behind other windows which i never knew it was there until now. This addon is the best SIMPLE text to speech software I have ever usedDenna användare har en tidigare recension för detta tillägg.

right after installing this addon my browser opened on restart a "babylon software" url. Instantly deleted, now I need to check my computer for other malwares, highly unrecommended addon.
Works and Doesn't Work Betygsatt 3 utav 5 stjärnor
It used to work before Firefox 50, but after the updates, it is kinda broken now.
It takes forever to load and speak a small range of text, must be horribly long for a 500 word passage that used to take a second or two.
It worked initially when I downloaded this, then it stopped working. Tried reloading the browser, but does not work either.
Might stick to ImTranslator's TTS, but I liked the voice of the TTV app more. Though none are ever as classic as Microsoft Sam!
Good but doesn't speak 60% of the time Betygsatt 3 utav 5 stjärnor

Great Natural woman voice!! Betygsatt 5 utav 5 stjärnor
As a first sight, I was amazed by the natural voice of the woman voice. I believe this addon is really a promising one!! Excellent job guys :-)Denna användare har en tidigare recension för detta tillägg.

Thank You ,Great Job !

Easy to use & natural sounding but doesn't always work Betygsatt 4 utav 5 stjärnor
The best tts addon I've come across. The female English voice is miles above most other tts voices.
My only complaint is that it only works intermittently, which is why I couldn't give this a full 5-stars. Sometimes it will be down for a few hours, other times for a whole day. I've been without for the past 3 days.
Could be a tiny bit more talkative and reliable. Betygsatt 3 utav 5 stjärnor
Well, on the pro side it's a slim and clean add-on (not counting the donation button here) and it has one of the best us male voices I've heard so far from free software. On the other hand it doesn't give any info about when the conversion process might be finished. Like right now I'm staring at that "progress bar" for 30 minutes and I'm wondernig: is the server at it's limit? Or is it just a glitch? Or is there something within the text that makes it behave like that? Or is it just taking *that* long (I don't think so, actually).
Personally I like the speed a which it (the male us voice at least) reads but generally a speed adjustment would be good.
So, if it was at least reliable I'd donate the suggested 5 $ but so far I'm not very impressed.
Buenísima Betygsatt 5 utav 5 stjärnor

BRAZILIAN please! Betygsatt 2 utav 5 stjärnor
The caption says "pt-BR", but this does not "pt-BR" is European Portuguese which seems ridiculous to Brazilians. The world must respect the fact they refer to two different languages in grammar and especially in phonetic!
