I love this. I can create a Medium Podcast of my favorite articles.

Now If I can just increase the speed...

Then it should be nominated for the Golden Kitty Award

@dredurr yes speed and accents is something we thought about too! We shall definitely add them! Thanks for the feedback!

@dredurr honestly I can't believe this doesn't exist already, I was brainstorming on this about 2 weeks ago.

@ma7moudfelfel .... random idea: is it possible to have it shown on the main screen (homepage) with Play Next option?

@charlesmudy Even us didn't believe that no one has made it before :)
And regarding your homepage idea, yes it is possible, we've been thinking of a feature like this actually, that will turn your homepage into a playlist.
@ma7moudfelfel @charlesmudy well, to be fair, there are already some "read it aloud" extensions in the Chrome Extensions store, but they're all terrible, esp. in comparison to this. :)

@dredurr This exists already (exactly!) in @NarroApp

@charlesmudy @dredurr @ma7moudfelfel the closest thing is SpeakIt! and before it was shut down evernote had a similar feature to read simplified articles.
Click, hold shift, click, right click, SpeakIt! not that user friendly :|
