Text to speech is evolving. The implications of text to speech technology are really broad, especially for the specially challenged. Even for most of us, who love to tap away on our keyboards, giving our ears a chance over our eyes has some interesting benefits. For instance, we can absorb information when we are busy doing something else.
Most of our information comes via our browser and that’s why the Google Chrome extension called Chrome Speak deserves a mention.
Chrome Speak can read aloud any selected piece of text within the browser. It uses the native text to speech feature of the operating system (Windows, Mac OS X, and Chrome OS). Chrome Speak does its bit to add some more handy ways to read long pieces of text. Just let it roll after selecting text and right clicking on the browser page and clicking on Read the selected text. Click on Stop reading to stop the voiceover.
