Overview
Read Aloud uses text-to-speech (TTS) technology to convert text to audio, allowing you to listen to your documents for proofreading, for reasons of dyslexia or other learning disabilities. Supports 36 languages.

You can activate this Google Docs addon from the Addon menu inside Google Docs.  Once activated, a sidebar appears in which you can pick a voice, set the reading speed, and start the speech.

It works, only I'm unable to change voices. The other issue I have is that you can adjust the speed of the speech, but the pitch just stays the same. Other than that, it does do what it's meant to. Not sure I'm into all the permissions though.
