am i missing something or does this not work at all for PDFs even with a premium subscription? a new browser window pops up with a section to submit a pdf. so i will save a pdf, load it, and zilch. ive tried changing the properties of these saved pdfs, nothing works. the mian reason i need this is for pdf journal articles (publicly available ones), and their painful serif fonts so rigidly unchangeable that i havent found any extension or app that can alter them. PLEASE HELP! this extension... Show more

I'm terribly sorry about that!! It seems like the content delivery network (cdn) for the pdf scripts is no longer supported. I'll go ahead and refund the premium subscriptions for the last few months. I have been rebuilding the site so it may be a little before its fixed. In the mean time, if you open the pdf in chrome as just a pdf, the reader should still work. I am horribly sorry about this!! I'll put out a fix as quickly as I can.

I love the extension and I am so glad you made this. I would give it 5 stars, but I can't seem to find a way to disable it on specific sites. For example YouTube will actually obscure part of the video when this extension is enabled. 🤷‍♂️

Wonderful accessible version! Thank you! I can't get the pdf reader to work but I still love that this is more accessible than other tools like it. Thank you!
