I am looking for a screen reader app or extension for the Google Chrome browser. This is specifically for Chrome OS so Java applets aren't an option, although Flash should be fine.

Any suggestions?

Update: Sometime in the last few days Chrome OS got an update to the accessibility features that includes screen reading.

Have you looked these accessibility extensions?


According to this discussion, development for a screen reader is underway.

I had not seen that discussion. Maybe that's the "GoogleVox" that I saw mentioned on one of the help pages, but doesn't seem to exist otherwise. I have looked at a number of other extensions, but none offer screen reading. It isn't accessibility per se that I am after. I am participating in the Cr-48 pilot program and wanted to see if screen reading was a feature currently available. Thanks! – Isaac Truett Dec 16 '10 at 13:13
