This is Great for free! But why does it say this is a Demo before it goes on to speak aloud the content? For small or starter sites it's FREE but having the voice say "This is a Demo of the read-aloud widget" before it starts to go onto read-aloud the post kinda makes it less attractive and makes your website or blog look and sound very amateur! which is not what you want when you're just starting up your site or blog and want to come across as a professional. It says there is a paid version for more heavy users ( I couldn't find it anywhere) I would also hope and like to check I am talking about the same App/Plugin. The site is readaloudwidget But my main point is this if your going to give a FREE version for light users (which is kind) but if you put "This is a Demo of the read-aloud widget" before it starts to go onto read-aloud the post, then it's not worth having the free version if you want to build your site or blog, as it will portray you as a beginner and your audience will not feel confident in your site/blog and you will lose them as customers or subscribers. A real shame they put that at the beginning, as I think they would do much better removing it (so you build confidence with your readers) then if you become a heavy user they should just inform you you now need to go to a paid subscription. Developers great app but please take on my comments, or I can not see people using it (if they want to come across as professional) then you have lost a real customer (lead) when they use it

I'm not a techie, just a "user-type," so when a reader asked me to add text-to-voice capability to my blog, it was intimidating. However, I tackled the challenge. I searched around, found one that I tried and ... it was scary what it ended up doing! So, I tried again and came across SiteSpeaker. I found this plug-in super simple to figure out and add to posts (FYI #1 ... Just add a "Short Code" block into your post and cut and paste the code that Site Speaker provides when you set up an account ... which is free). I found a voice that is perfect for the content of my blog. Diction and pacing are excellent. I had what I thought was a technical issue and within a couple of hours (on a Sunday!), I had an answer explaining why this happened (FTI #2 ... it takes 30 min. for the plug-in to refresh its cache, so if you make a change to your post's text, it won't be reflected in the text-to-voice version for 30 min. ... quite manageable). Thanks!
