This nifty extension will help you instantly listen the various content present on certain webpages, through a text to speech conversion
If you’re frequent users of pages that contain articles, a fervent reader, or you simply cherish efficiency and wish to improve your multitasking routine, converting text to speech and assimilating information via audition while attending other tasks, might be one way to go. Built with such purposes in mind, Send As Podcast for Chrome will allow you to easily preview any selected text in audible format, thus making things easier when running a multi-tasking workflow.
Select your preferred text, hit the extension and you’re good to go, in just one single click
That’s right, having installed the extension, all that users need to do is navigate to their preferred URL, select the text that they wish to preview as audio content, and hit the extension button. This will send the resulting audio content to a dedicated player, in a new tab.
There is no statement regarding which or how many websites are compatible with the extension’s capabilities, but it’s safe to say that it will work on most. At least that was our experience during the testing process.
Preview the converted audio content at multiple playback speeds, thanks to the included player
Of course, one of the highlights of an extension that offers text to audio conversion must be the audio capabilities, and in this case, the extension offers a built-in player, for previewing the converted content.
With rudimentary playback controls, and some for play speed, the built-in player will be opened automatically, in a new tab. This is not ideal, as it might disrupt users from their current page, but maybe future iterations will provide a “mini-player”, provided as a floating or docking instance.
