I use Play.ht for providing audio for my Medium readers. They are robotic voices, but it gets the job done and it's very easy to get started. You can even embed the player inside your own articles.

I was going to recommend this when I saw the question. But you already did. This is definitely the best extension to listen to Medium articles.

In this article I'll share with you how I validated a fresh idea, by focusing on metrics instead of lines of code; did that in 3 months, instead of 2.5+ years (like in my previous startup); got accepted in Y Combinator's Startup School and... all that while traveling across San Francisco, Singapore and Bali.
