I use this a lot for proofreading and it gets the job done. The interface is a bit clunky, though, and the voice options could really use an overhaul, considering what's out there nowadays. But for a free app that helps me catch little errors or redundancies in my writing, it's serviceable.

Easy to use and voices are fine. I like how you can change the pitch and speed. It would be great if there were more options for voice types.

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.
