What is Reader?
"Reader" is a Firefox add-on that allows you to highlight and listen to text on webpages. It also provides a convenient way to read whole paragraphs using a keyboard shortcut.
Reader speaks the text you select on a webpage. A keyboard shortcut allows easy reading of selected text by paragraph.
Click the address bar button to enable or disable speak on selection for individual websites. The context menu item and the keyboard shortcut are always enabled.
Reader is risky to use as it requires a number of sensitive permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Reader if you trust the publisher.
Reader has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
