Most popular feedback for T2S: Text to Voice/Read Aloud

By far the best text to speech app I have used. I mainly use it to listen to books at work. I also love the custom rules for speaking text process. I'm only a novice coder so I don't know how difficult this would be, but since the app has a separate control for voice, pitch, and speed it would be really cool if you could add those options in the custom rules. Like increase the pitch or voice upon a trigger. I could have a filter on the text document and set voices for the different characters.

T2S: Text to Voice/Read Aloud reviews

I had my vocal cords removed due to cancer. It was helpful re: communicating with others.. I liked this app a lot, but someone redesigned and this new version makes the app almost unusable to me. I'm disappointed the new ver offers less control of the main screen. Sometimes I need to show the screen to someone, and sometimes i want it to say what I've written on the screen. Clearing the screen is also now more difficult

- Steve Kelly

Since I've had this app for quite some time I still believe this is the best app for on the go reading. Over the years it has managed to stay reliable, user friendly, and "clean". I can listen to all my textbooks, and take a link of my choosing and roll with it. The voices have gotten better as well. But there is one thing that bothers me, I have multiple devices, and the links are not shared across them. But at the moment it is not a major concern. I still give this app a five overall.

- Tatyana Irizarry

I've used every text to speech app I could find. This has become my go to. I love the dark theme, being able to follow along, and the easy speech pronunciation customization. I just wish there were a progress bar and a way to access a list of past files.

WebOutLoud reviews

After evaluating about 10 different options last night, I concluded that this is the best TTS extension available today on the Chrome Web Store. 1. Highlighting words as they are read is key to help those with attention issues retain their focus 2. The ability to skip sections is crucial. A few extensions only have play/pause. 3. This extension retained its location in the document (tested w/a Wikipedia article) better than most. And if it does lose its place, #2 (skip function) helps you get back to where you were. 4. The voice was remarkably natural, although that might be a function of what I have installed on my PC.

- Allan Carhart

This extension is a great addition to my computer and daily life! As I work, I can listen to articles easily! (instead of listening to the radio, for example, and get a good brainwash!). I really appreciate all the new features! Web Out Loud just gets better and better! Thank you.
