I wrote a bookmarklet that reads text out loud in your browser.
Simply drag this link to your bookmarks bar: read out loud
To use the Text to Speech Bookmarklet:
- Select text in your browser
- Cick the bookmarklet.
- Then an mp3 will load and play. (Sometimes you need to refresh to make it load)
It uses the Google Translate TTS API, which is actually a hack-API. Using the Google Text To Speech API is explained here.
