Overview

A web-powered screen reader

Please note that this extension is now in maintenance mode; no new additions will be made moving forward. The Chrome Screen reader extension is a showcase of a fully featured screen reader for the web built using only web technologies such as html and javascript. This extension specifically works within the Chrome browser to read content aloud. For more comprehensive solutions, we recommend the use of full system screen readers like ChromeVox on Chrome OS, VoiceOver on Mac, JAWS, NVDA or Narrator on Windows, etc. By installing this extension, you agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.
