Text-to-Speech Comes to Star Rigger’s Net

WebsiteVoice icon

Alert readers will already have noticed the speech button that now appears on every page of this website and blog. Try clicking it! (Not the picture on the left. The little button way on the left.) I’ve installed this at the suggestion of a blog reader who asked me ages ago why I didn’t enable readaloud for sight-impaired fans. Now I’ve done it! (I set out to do it when I first got the suggestion, but some technical glitch or other stalled the process at the time.)

I think it works pretty well, especially for a free plugin. All I can offer right now is a male voice reading in American English, but I hope that will meet the needs of most of you. Let me know what you think in the comments!
