No one thinks to rate an extension if they have a positive experience with it. But I must say, I've used it for years now and it has been extremely helpful. Thank you.

It doesn't allow me to adjust the speed at all. The voices change all the time too. I was using it as an add-on for a Google doc and it didn't work at all.

Pretty good. it could have some improvements (like more voices, sound less robotic, identifying when language has changed). works well in English's and Spanish. i use it every other day. i use it on google docs, reading websites. its great. and you can use it on one tab and go work on other tabs. i don't know what these people are talking about.
