Most popular feedback for Select and Speak – Text to Speech

This extension was good for several years but recently, as of Feb 2022, the extension refuses to work despite being updated, reinstalled, etc. I've given up trying to make this work for me. I'm using a new app called Read Aloud now for anyone else who needs it. Its a real shame this app stopped working all together.

Most popular feedback for TextSniper

I wanted to grab some text from a video and I realized how tedious and time-consuming it was to take a screenshot, edit it and save it. And then I found TextSniper and it has been a lifesaver. I can just run the program and copy and paste the text, and it's so easy and quick. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I am so glad I found it.

Not working


The tool has saved me tons of time and I like that the app quickly launches from the menubar
It also has a QR code reader that allows you to launch links without using your phone to take a photo of the QR code
TextSniper is a simple tool that does exactly what it claims to, grabs texts from anything! images, pdf, video shots, etc.
It's super easy to use , doesn't require any learning curve.
sometimes it does miss a a couple of letters
but that's rare
Other than that, i think it's pretty goodI can't use this software in Windows.
