MacOS X Chrome Speech Failing

Friday, May 19th, 2017

I never new how addicted I was to this feature until it stopped working.  I literally get my browser to read almost everything to me from Emails I draft, to new articles I read.  I’ve submitted typos reports to the New York Times, DailyDot, The Guardian,, Globe and Mail,, and more.  I found them all by “listening” to their articles.

MacOS X Chrome Speech->Start Speaking

I have a workaround, but it’s not as elegant:

I configured Option+S to start speaking selected text (any application).  It’s ok I guess… but really miss the ability to right click on and speak in Chrome.
