I have developed a simple custom plugin that can read the selected text, or the text that is in the current text area. It uses a premium text to speech service. If you are interested in this, please email me directly and I will share with you the beta version to try out!
I don’t have your email address but I’d be very keen to try this beta
Yes, text to speech is a feature that I use everyday. Currently I’m relying on the capability inside of Google Docs. But, I would like to explore this and test it for you.
@Steve_Peterson I’ve emailed you the plugin. Enjoy!
