Let me choose a default voice for different languages

I use read aloud to listen to english and finnish texts. The default voice for english is horrible, so I have to always manually change it. Then, after a while, I go and use read aloud for some finnish text. Read aloud starts reading my finnish text with english pronouncer, which obviously doesn't work. So, I go and set the read aloud to use finnish voice. This constant swapping with different voices is exhausting and time consuming. Therefore, I wish you would make it possible for the user to choose a default voice for different languages, which the read aloud could always fall back to when it detects a certain language.

Sound randomly stopped working

The extension is no longer working on any site I try, regardless of the browser. It highlights the text, but no voice is speaking. I've tried messing with the sound on my computer, which did not fix the issue.

travail toujours.

Bonjour, aujourd'hui le 2024-05-21 lorsque j'essaie d'utiliser l'extension il travaille toujours sans résultat, aucun texte n'apparaît, il ne lie rien à voix haute. J'ai essayé sur plusieurs sites même problème, j'ai aussi essayé de changer/effacer les cookies/historique et le problème persiste. J'ai aussi essayé d'envoyer un rapport d'erreur mais il travaillait toujours sans envoyer l'information. Voilà pourquoi je vous écris. Je tiens à mentionner que la veille il fonctionnait très bien . Merci et bonne journée.

Speed regulation on the main menu.

Hello, can you please implement a speed regulator on the main screen (left-click on megaphone). Its would be better, sometimes I want to speed up but have to go to the settings.

Kind regard,

P.s. I love your extension.
