Google recently launched a new text-to-speech service with an improved voice and response time. This service is already used by them in the Google Assistant app on Androids and on the Google Homes.
This is a major leap forward in my opinion, as I was just looking last year for something like it, but nothing was as near as fluent and perfect as the one we’re talking about.
Of course I had to drop everything I was doing in order to play with it and I came with a Chrome Extension that speaks out loud the text you currently have selected. I also posted it on my favourite site, from which I got 6 upvotes and 14 extension downloads.
I can’t wait for developers to make all kinds of software that can now talk to us.
