The plugin was serving purpose but started giving errors while we started using in wplms theme. Many emails and support questions have not resulted in even a single response. No idea who is the plugin maker and to whom we paid the money.

Works but not keyboard accessible
By , for WP 4.0

Because I was skeptical, I tried this plugin on Chrome, Firefox and Safari (on a mac). Also tried it using WordPress 4.0 on a custom theme I was working on as well as TwentyThirteen. So far it appears to work as advertised. Can't complain. It's a pretty nifty feature.

If you're using the plugin for accessibility, however, the GSpeech icon to read the text when you're using the {gspeech} code isn't highlighted via keyboard. So if I'm tabbing my way through the site, and I've manually put the speaker icon after text that I want read out loud, it skips over it (tested in TwentyThirteen).

If a user doesn't have a mouse or can't use a traditional mouse to highlight text and is using somewhat of a tabbing system to go through the site, then GSpeech will not be available to them. Hope this gets fixed if this is going to continue using the accessibility tag.

So it works. Just not totally accessible.

Works great :)

I've been testing several TTS plugins and by far this one is the best.

It has more features and options, works straight away, and the streaming voice is free.

I only found one other that actually works, and the developers of that one are dodgy about what it will cost once you are done with their free trial period. You have to email them for a custom quote. That means a pretty high number I'm sure.

I like the way you can highlight a certain part and play just that.

I wrote this plugin, and of course love it.
Definitely, this is a most creative plugin among WordPress Plugins.
It makes your site more attractive and accessible to the world!

Please use GSpeech Forum for any kind of support requests.
Use it and be happy.

Cheers!

Dont buy Pro Version - No Support
By , for WP 3.6.1

Does not work in IE properly, does not work in firefox at all, chrome works ok. Just check the forums to confirm.

Im very grateful for plugin developers that offer free plugins and hope that by purchasing pro versions that support would be available as outlined but unfortunately ive been waiting for support as has others. I hope that it is a genuine reason that support has stopped but my non-profit is out of pocket on this one.

Disappointing and dumb
By , for WP 3.6.1

Dumb! 1 star for you!

As soon as I installed and used it the first time, audio didn't work and I just get a stupid popup when I click the play button that says, "To hide a backlink please purchase a GSpeech PRO version." So, it doesn't even work, and yet and they're already trying to sell me an upgrade? Brilliant!

My suggestion is to hide overt marketing like that. There are much better and far more subtle and effective ways to promote your plugin upgrade. You're doing it wrong.

I'm deactivating and uninstalling GSpeech plugin NOW.

Fast response, beautifully designed, great support
By , for WP 3.5.2

Very practical way how to let the web read aloud. I had some setup troubles with Pro version but that was not due to plugin itself, it was caused by my theme settings. The support was quick and helpful. If there was a better integration with their other plugin - gtranslate, it would be simply perfect!
