Google Chrome Tests Microsoft Edge-Like Read-Aloud Feature
Google Chrome is testing a new Read Aloud feature that could make it a more attractive option for people who prefer to listen to content rather than read it.
The feature is similar to the one already available in Microsoft Edge, and it allows users to have web pages read to them aloud.
To use the Read Aloud feature, users will need to enable it in the Chrome Canary experimental browser. Once enabled, users can activate the feature by highlighting any text on a web page and then clicking the new Read Aloud button that will appear in the pop-up menu.
The Read Aloud feature is still in its early stages of development, but it already works well. The text-to-speech voice is natural-sounding and easy to understand. Users can also adjust the reading speed and pitch to their liking.
