Really great extension, for free. I noticed some unpatient people complaining in the reviews that it doesn't work. It didn't work for me at first either. Make sure the page you want it to read is setup and if it's not working then click on the extension -> click the cog wheel for settings -> click the ... -> reload app and then go to then try again. This worked for me. Nothing to complain about when it's a free extension that is very powerful and probably difficult to code. Thank you developer, you are a star

Why would I used a text to speech reader when the overview video voice over doesn't even pronounce the name of your own extension correctly? ("Pear-ih-CULLS"???) If you can't bother with quality control over pronunciation in that why should I expect the screen reader to do a good job?
