Это лучшее расширение из всех, которые есть на этом сайте.

Good extension, it does what annouced. It is the best one which I've tested till now. I like its English speaking. The longest article which I had tested lasted over 20 min. and worked OK. I APPRECIATE the possibility to preset speed, pitch and volume. It can read even OFFline PDF files opened in Chrome. I MISS the button "Stop" and my native language - Czech. I WOULD LIKE to have the possibility to start speaking from specific word/ sentence without the need to copy the whole article/ chapter.
