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

Utter garbage. You try to deactivate it, it says "ChromeVox is now inactive", and then happily continues to run. Then you try to deactivate it temporarily from the extensions page, only to notice that it wrecked the extension page layout somehow, and you're unable to do it! Had to remove it completely. Is this really supposed to be the official Google's screen reader? Beyond disappointing.

Useful tool, lighter and easier to use than the native IOS "voiceover" tool but it's lacking a simple toggle feature on the UI and keyboard hotkeys. A way around this is to open the "Extensions Menu" > "Manage Extensions" > search "Screen reader". On the bottom right there is a toggle icon to disable/enable the extension but works perfectly as an On/Off switch. - When the tab is already open it takes less than 2 secs enable/disable the extension. So much faster than installing/uninstalling ... Show more
