Text 2 Speech is a Firefox extension (add-on) developed by AUDU LUCY IKANI, a Post-Graduate student of University of Abuja, Nigeria. It adds text-to-speech functionality to Firefox.

Text 2 Speech (TTS) uses iSpeech's human-quality text-to-speech (TTS) to read any selected text in the browser. It includes many text to speech voices in different languages. You can configure the voice options by changing the settings on the options page. It also contains indigenous language of the Nigerian "YORUBA".

One other interesting feature of this Text 2 Speech extension is that One just needs to select text, right click on the selected text and click on "Convert Text to Speech" from the pop up menu options icon and this add-on will speaks the selected text. The audio file can also be downloaded as MP3 file.
Risk impact

Text 2 Speech (TTS) requires a number of risky 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 Text 2 Speech (TTS) if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Text 2 Speech (TTS) has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
