Overview

A web-powered screen reader

Please note that this extension is now in maintenance mode; no new additions will be made moving forward. This is scheduled to be deprecated. 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/.

As soon at is is downloaded, the extension just reads everything even if I try to adjust the settings. It also messes up everything on my screen. My home page doesn't show up, the search bar is not appearing, I can't open websites, everything is scrambled even after repowering my computer. As soon as I deleted it, everything came back to normal. There is something very wrong with that extension. I don't recommend it at all.

Oh dear, Google. This tool completely breaks web-components.

If it is reading too much, you can disable the option called Enable verbose descriptions.
