It is great, but the on flaw is in that a word(for this, let's say the) will be voiced by a person and then the next word will be voiced by another person, making it hard to use

"I like this application based on what I saw on YouTube, BUT THE POP-UP DOESN'T WORK NO MATTER WHAT. I have tried everything to make the pop-up work, including resetting Chrome, trying different configuration options, trying "None" and "Keys," etc. (Note: other dictionary extensions' pop-ups DO WORK.) Having to manually copy and paste words and not being able to access the fast pop-up feature is a big minus. I have seen many users criticize the same problem since at least February 2023. PLEASE PROVIDE A SOLUTION, as I would like to use your application as it has good voice lines for learning proper pronunciation
