Up to now, text-to-speech (TTS) combined with highlighting sentences is by far the best way I found to read fast and at the same time very relaxed. I need an application or browser extension that enables highlighting sentences while reading them using text-to-speech (TTS) method.

I'm currently using TTS feature of Mac OSX but I really need this feature since I tested it with Moon+ Android App, for example, and facilitates a lot the reading. Basically, it allows you to read without directly reading each word, just visually follow sentence length.

Do anyone know any App for Mac or browsers extension? Thanks!

maybe this is interesting for you as well. –  Jean-Paul Mar 20 at 9:06
    
Thanks Jean-Paul, but I'm not looking for Spreed-like Apps. I'm looking for a highlighting and text-to-speech MAC OS X App. In fact, what I need is a Chrome extension doing this. –  James Mar 24 at 11:17

I gather from your question that, since you already had a solution for OS X (the Apple built-in TTS, which I also use a lot), you must have been looking for a similar solution for Android. But then, you mention ChromeVox, which is only for desktop and ChromeOS. Did you find something similar that you can use with Chrome on Android? –  avernet Apr 11 at 16:55
    
Hi avernet, as far as I know, Chrome for Android does not support extensions yet. Since I have almost all the webpages via RSS, I'm using gReader, a powerful App that is capable to read via TTS. Please post here a link if you ask in Android forums for tools related to TTS in Android. –  James Apr 12 at 17:43
    
OK understood, and thank you for the clarification. –  avernet Apr 12 at 22:16
