"Chrome" Reader lets your eyes rest and have your ears do the reading for you.
This FRIENDLY app is aimed both at basic users who are not familiar with technology, as well as advanced users who just want to perform this task in a very simple manner.


It's as SIMPLE as 1, 2, 3:
1. Open Google Chrome.
2. Copy any text from the webpage.
3. Put your device down and listen.

TIP: Shake device to stop the voice reading and save it as audio content.

DISCLAIMER:
"Chrome" Reader was built on an actual android device AND have been tested on many android devices in order to reach maximum compatibility all over the world for people in need for this productive & Educational app!
No android emulators were used in the making of "Chrome" Reader.


Negative feedback will not resolve your issue; Communication will !



TIP:
Once you highlight the text you can also press the 'select all' button which is left to the 'cut', 'copy' & 'paste' buttons and then copy the text to read the whole webpage!
It works great for saving pages for offline voice reading.


Educational use:
According to many reports by users, "Chrome" Reader actually helped them with Pronunciation, Reading and even Focusing on Listening as you can have the voice reading along with you just like in class with a teacher.

(The speech recognition used will be the default on your android device including the language selected)


Enjoy!

What's new:
v1.9.9 - NEW: Multi Language Selector Option.
NEW: Gorgeous & Simple User Interface: Main Menu.



v1.8 - NEW: Simple Mode & Advanced Mode!

Simple Mode - 1. Copy Text, 2. Listen, 3. Shake to stop; the original concept of Chrome Reader with no User Interface. (Saving to an audio file can be turned on or off in this mode)

Advanced Mode - The addition of the toolbar for more functions and the ability to stop the voice reading with a tap instead of shake.

v1.7 - NEW: Option to show the toolbar after or while reading the text (right after copying the text; which disables the 'shake to stop' feature)
FIX: Added a Purple Re-read button in toolbar for pages that doesn't read aloud when using 'select all text' option (due to dynamic web objects)

v1.6.1 - NEW: an option to auto hide the toolbar (default is at 5 seconds)

v1.6 - NEW: Chrome Reader toolbar for quick functions (size is changeable in options)
NEW: An option to change the pitch and speed of the voice reading (in Omate Truesmart version too!)
NEW: Share the copied text (audio too soon!)
CHANGED: Shaking the device stops the voice & shows the toolbar instead of saving it as an audio file right away (Omate version still saves it)
ADDED: A pink heart button.

v1.5.9.9 - NEW: Now compatible with Omate Truesmart Smartwatch! (See video demo http://youtu.be/6F75rDA9fb0)
CHANGED: Now you can read new text while it saves it as an audio file with no waiting time.
v1.5.9 - NEW: Now supports Chrome Beta!
ADDED: Share Chrome Reader with your Friends!
v1.5.1 - CHANGED: Recordings filenames.
v1.5 - NEW: Record the voice content to a HQ audio file.
NEW: Built in player to listen to recordings.
NEW: Colorful Vocal Friendly User Interface (CVF-UI)
ADDED: More Informative pages & an extended Troubleshooter.
CHANGED: Interface Animations.
+More!
v1.1 - NEW: Shake device to stop voice reading.
v1.0 - Initial stable release.


To do list:
-More creative options.

I publish here at xda the unreleased version with the feature of shaking the device to stop voice reading.

Once you copy the text and its start reading it out loud Chrome Reader starts to monitor the accelometer; once you shake the phone to stop reading it also stops monitoring the accelometer so this app does not consume battery!

haha love the idea and the simplicity of this !!

I copy the text I want to show the person im with and then hand him the phone and he just listens to it; people aren't excited to read something when you show them.

thank you.
