Last weekend, I started exploring text-to-speech services and its current state is surprisingly good. The results sound as natural as a human reading.
I was able to build Read Text, a Chrome extension that reads your content. You can enter content directly, or extract it from the web page. Then it will detect the content language. You can change the language, and select the reader's voice, click play button and start listening.
MP3 Sample: ReadText-NBA-players-react-to-Kevin-en.mp3
Here's a screenshot of the extension
It's currently free to use or download as an MP3 file. One use-case example is to generate voices and embedded into tutorial videos in case you don't want to record yourself
Read Text is available on Webstore https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/read-text/kaefoohoohjefceijkjcjhkddinmbhbp
