Select and Speak – Text to Speech Passes any Selected Text on Any Web Site

Select and Speak - Text to Speech Passes any Selected Text on Any site

Select and Speak is an interesting extension for Google Chrome that will allow us to convert to speech texts that have previously selected within the content of any website you’re visiting. It is therefore an extension that can be used for different needs in different areas, as may be in education, among others.

We just need to install it and go to your settings, where among other things, we can choose the speed or type of voice. In my case I selected “European Spanish Male” as voice, so that when selecting a text, after a few seconds, we have the audio available that we hear when we give the button will be added to us in our browser interface.

Select and Speak

Clearly, the flow is not proper to approach the human being, and perhaps to remind us of Loquendo speech synthesizer or we hear in some buses announcing the next stop. Another option is Announcify, which among other media, is also available as an extension for Google Chrome , as well as application for Android .

  1. This program is great, it sounds like a human voice and as a speed setting. I have a cognitive learning disorder (ADD) and find that hearing something is better then reading it. DeVry University switched to Vital Source as the provider of some of their free online books for classes and I’ve been having trouble keeping with the reading. Now it feels as though a vale has been lifted. With the speed option I can speed read my homework while doing a project. Now I can multitask! Great job. This will also improve the lives of so many vision impaired users.  Fire fox has Speak it and now Chrome has this… where is Internet Explorer in all this?
