Mozilla Adds Google's ReadAloud to Its Firefox Browser

Mozilla, providers of the Firefox web browser, has added an extension for Google's ReadAloud to its web platform.

ReadAloud uses text-to-speech technology that lets users listen to any article instead of reading it.

"ReadAloud uses text-to-speech technology to convert webpage text to audio. It works on a variety of websites, including news sites, blogs, fan fiction, publications, textbooks, school and class websites, online universities, and course materials," Mozilla said in a blog post.

The ReadAloud extension was one of three updates Mozilla has added in the past few weeks. Mozilla also launched Firefox Relay, which allows users to hide their email addresses while signing up to websites, and ClearURL for removing tracking elements before sharing URLs and listening to articles.
