Slang is a free tool that converts text of websites to speech. It can increase your productivity, help you study more effectively and is a must have if you are learning a new language.

Slang shows the text in the pop-up synchronized with the speech, so that you can read along, regardless of the page you're on. Listening and reading simultaneously increases comprehension, strengthens memory, helps build fluency skills including proper phrasing and expression and improve sight word recognition!

If you want to save time or keep your eyes off the screen, let Slang read the contents of a web page for you.

It is very simple to use, just select the text you want to hear, open the pop-up and click on the play button or right click on the selected text and click on speak. You can also type or paste in the pop-up whatever you want to be spoken. You can change the volume, rate, pitch and voice.

Supports 14 languages, some in different accents, totaling 21 different voices.

I love this so much, that's all what I needed. Thank you. I give 5 stars because I love how you can simply select the language you want, select the text and then hear the speaker with its fluent non robotical voice reading the text. Its so soft and nice to hear, its so good for visiting websites or blogs with endless text where or even wikipedia articles.

Stops after some words. Just doesn't work. Or, for a few words. I selected a complete article on a web page (SLATE) and it started well but stopped after the second sentence. Same way of working for the second and third try.
