Review:
Free and effective extension for providing text-to-speech (TTS) for any webpage to a user. It launches easily from the menu bar when loaded and reads the areas you highlight in 50 languages (it says), but my experience is that you need to right click its options area and choose the appropriate TTS voice for the language you are about to hear. Great option for ELL students and individuals with text-based challenges. I like the ease of use for pausing and starting the TTS.No highlighting of words being spoken unfortunately...
