Summary

Seen a great tutorial or ebook online and want to dive in , but finding yourself unable to read after 5 mins? Having eyestrain problems ? I had the same problem and it really troubled me a lot. so i created this extension to read(actually hear) articles , tutorials etc online. Installing it does not add any extra interface whatsoever.

The operation is very simple. To read any text just select the text BEFORE it and press ,(comma) key. The text selection automatically jumps to the line and reads it out aloud. And similiarly keys are there for prev/next sentence, word and paragraph.

RECOMMENDED: Install the free high quality tts voice from google for better results from : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/us-english-female-text-to/pkidpnnapnfgjhfhkpmjpbckkbaodldb It also works offline

KEYMAP(also on welcome page and options page, after installing) , key goes to next line and 'reads it'(i.e upto next full stop) 'm' key goes to previous line and reads it.(i.e upto previous full stop) ' key to go upto next punctuation mark ; key to go upto previous punctuation mark shift+i to invert colors [ key to go to previous word ] key to go to next word

Doesn't actually work. Just keeps showing useless popups that do nothing.
