Download the app and refresh all tabs that are opened in chrome before using on any of them.
Open the page of an academic journal and either highlight the text of interest or select a section of the paper that you would like to be read from the "Choose section to read" menu.
Press the play and pause buttons to start and pause the speech. When finished listening- you must click the cancel (X) button to stop the speech so that you can move on and read something else. Speed and voice options are also available.
Rewind and fast forward options are available through the according icons. You can also go back and forward paragraphs with the up and down arrows (how many paragraphs you want to rewind/skip can be input in the textbox beside these buttons). NOTE: rewind/ forward options are only possible when reading the paper in terms of sections i.e. not when highlighting/selecting text with the mouse.
