I made this extension for myself, because I need something simple that will speak text with a wicked female voice.
If you find this extension useful, rate and share it.
Instructions: Select the text you want to hear, right click and click on ‘Speak selection’.
The speech will continue, even if you close the tab, unless you specifically right click and click on ‘Stop Speech’.
Large text selection will take a few seconds to load in memory and for the speech to start.
Known Bug: If the speech doesn’t start, please Stop and Start the speech again.
