After Announcify conquered Android™ phones, it’s now here to announcify your life at Google Chrome™.

Announcify reads out loud every website you want. For example, if you’re too tired but still need to study one more Wikipedia entry, Announcify can help your tired eyes relax.

What others say about this extension:
“This is a handy extension that will let you rest your tired eyes and at the same time, let you learn new stuff. This extension is similar to Chrome Speak that we previously covered, but is much easier to use, as it automatically reads out the entire page without requiring you to select text, so sit back and relax and listen to all those lengthy articles with Announcify.” – AddictiveTips, http://goo.gl/LwSuG

“Announcify is free and really handy for those times when your eyes are too tired but you’re still eager to read.” – Lifehacker, http://goo.gl/5xRPE

This extension was built during the GTUG Vienna Chrome Hackathon on 29.10.2011 together with Dominic Bartl and Kariem Hussein. It’s made possible by technology provided by Diffbot (http://www.diffbot.com/) – thank you!

This extension is open source. More information at http://announcify.com/

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Announcify reviews

It is broken and has been for a while. It seems to stop in the middle or at the end of long paragraphs as though there is some sort of character limit. It seems this might be a problem with Chrome's TTS api though since other TTS extensions seem to be having the same problem. It also will skip paragraphs when using the forward or back buttons. Seems the developer might have given up on this project. Which is sad since this was one of my favorite Chrome extensions.

Stops in the middle of the first paragraph. Otherwise its great!
