How To Have Google Chrome Read To You

Are you having trouble reading small font on your screen? Or do you prefer to listen to articles on your favorite blog while multitasking? Look no further, as Google Chrome has the perfect solution for you! Its ‘Read Aloud’ feature allows you to easily have web pages read aloud. This guide will walk you through how to use this feature.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Open Google Chrome: If it isn’t already your default web browser, find it in your applications or programs and open it.
  2. Navigate to the webpage: Type the URL of the webpage you want to be read aloud into the address bar at the top of the Chrome window, then press Enter.
  3. Right-click on the text: After the webpage loads, locate the text you want to be read aloud, then right-click on it. A drop-down menu will appear.
  4. Select “Read Aloud”: In the drop-down menu, you should find an option that says “Read Aloud” (or “Speak”) near the middle of the menu. Click on this option.

As soon as you click on “Read Aloud”, Google Chrome will start reading the text on the page out loud. It starts from the section where you right-clicked and continues down the page. If you want to stop the reading, you can simply click anywhere on the page.

Adjusting Reading Speed

You can also adjust the speed at which the text is read out to you. This can be done through the settings in the ‘Read Aloud’ feature. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Activate Read Aloud: As described above, find the “Read Aloud” feature by right-clicking on the text you want to be read.
  2. Open Read Aloud settings: On the Read Aloud pop-up that appears, click on the settings icon (It looks like a cog).
  3. Adjust speed: A slider will appear that controls the speed of the reading. Move the slider to the left to slow down the reading speed, or to the right to speed it up.


The ‘Read Aloud’ feature in Google Chrome is a fantastic tool for those who prefer listening over reading or for those who have visual impairments. It’s easy to use and even allows you to adjust the reading speed according to your preference. So, the next time you want a webpage read to you, remember this helpful feature in Google Chrome.
