Is there any chrome shortcut that you can press to have the word pronounced out loud just as though you'd opened a separate tab, typed the word in google, and clicked the sound icon to have it read out?


You can use one of the various extensions available.

If you find that they do not have a shortcut or easy access in general you can create a custom shortcut for them.

  • I prefer a shortcut, as installing extensions gives your browsing data to the (third party) extension developers – stevec Jul 28 '20 at 17:53

    I do understand your concerns. Unfortunately I don't think there is a default Chrome functionality for this. (Actually, I am quite sure.) – marikamitsos Jul 28 '20 at 17:57
