I have created a series of bookmarklets that adds text to speech functionality to Google Chrome. You can select a block of text within Chrome and speak it aloud or convert it to an MP3 file and send it to your iPod or MP3 player for listening offline.
The bookmarklets are available here.
I'd be very interested in any feedback you may have.
The technique can be used for other situations where you want to send information from the browser to a desktop application. Note that all communication is one-way, from the browser to the desktop application.
If anyone's interested, I'll write up an article describing all the ins and outs of the technique used.
I've posted an article on CodeProject.com that describes the technique discussed above. It includes a simple application that will speak aloud any text highlighted in Google Chrome. Full source code is included for both the sample application and the bookmarklets.
it really helps users like us who need to read tons of data, now we'll listen instead of tiring reading, it will helpful for an online copywriter like me. thanks
This plugin really cool for me cause I will have to write tons of article for my tennis secrets site. It will be helpful for me and i'll suggest it for my team.
