How to make mobile Chrome browser on Android read web text out loud to you
- Download the Chrome Reader 3.3 APK fileor visit the developer's XDA-Devs thread
- Install the file from phone memory, open it, press the 'Enable' button, and press 'Exit'
- Start mobile Chrome, mark any text in the browser, and press the 'Copy' icon
- The phone will start reading out to you via the text-to-speech engine, stop the voice by simply shaking the handset
If you find the developer's efforts useful, you can also download the official $0.99 Chrome Reader app from the Play Store. This will ensure more Android versions and browsers supported with the next versions, as well as a more polished UI, and the ability to save the readouts in audio files for emailing or listening to later.
