I just recently switched to a Moto X from an iPhone 5, and I am looking for the one feature that I used every day on my iPhone. The speak selection feature. On iOS you can select any text, in basically any app, and click "speak" from the context menu. The device will read the text back to you without kicking you out of the app you were using or anything like that.

I found a similar app for Android, it's called Easy Text to Speech. However, this app works by monitoring the clipboard. Is there perhaps a way to do this without having to use the clipboard. For instance, by using the share option, but without having to switch to another program. I want to be able to browse the internet, select what I want to be read, and have it read to me without getting out of the browser or the app that I am using.

Perhaps there is a framework for Android for adding custom contextual commands?

Thanks for any help.
