Announcify is a chrome extension that reads text to the user. It cleans up the online text by opening a new tab and then commences to read to the user. The paragraphed text being read is in focus while all the surrounding text is blurred out.
This is fantastic to use with students who are easily distracted with all the interactive online content surrounding an article/post. As well it reads quite well with access to 22 different voices/languages and speaking rates. (Change this in the Settings > Announcify > Options > Text-to-Speech.)
