I like the Read Aloud extension for Chrome. Mostly because you can sign into your Amazon Prime account to get access to premium Amazon voices.

It's a paid solution, but Read&Write is almost always my go to For Chrome and Chromebooks. The extension will give you 30 days to try it, at which point you'll need a subscription.

Hello Everyone,

I am working with a student who needs to find a text-to-speech reader for her Chromebook. I am not very familiar with Chromebooks, but I suspect this will not be the last request I get.

Is there a list of assistive technology and/or text-to-speech readers for Chromebooks anywhere? Also, is anyone familiar with any good text-to-speech readers for the Chromebook? This particular student is looking at reading web-based materials, but I can easily imagine other requests in the future.

Thanks in advance for your help.
David Schwarte
