- This seems like a very popular Chrome extension for listening to articles. Did well in the Product Hunt launch 😊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.
At the time, this was fantastic. There was also a mobile app, but none of them work anymore. Also, since Medium added a native Audio option to articles published, hard to have a reason to not use that now.
- would love something equivalent for Wix blog
- would be great if you could somehow download the file and upload this as a podcast for iTunes and Android

- Ambrose Leung made this productMy service works on all platforms - you just email the article URL to an email address (or use the Chrome Extension) and it will be added to your list your personal podcast feed is automatically updated as well. the unique feature that my service has is that you can tag articles and have them played by tag on the Amazon Echo. Obviously the parser may not work on all websites, so if it is doing TTS on text that is not relevant, just email me and I'll get that fixed.
- Voice Aloud Reader is still the only app I've ever paid for, just because I received so much value from the free, ad supported version. It plays almost any file type, syncs with Pocket, Dropbox, Google Drive and it's really easy to skip or go back a sentence or paragraph.

This product has helped me so much with college! I use it for my readings when I am feeling overwhelmed or anxious about not being able to do all the readings, or when I want to be productive on my walks to and from home, at the gym, etc. Awesome product and I love that it works in Spanish as well!
