User reviews
Hi Trajche Petrov, I am a language learner from China and I love your speakit plugin. It works great with bing in web.skype.com and helps me learn different languages easily. However, I have some suggestions that I hope you can consider. Could you please make the messages from bing read out automatically without clicking the play button? And could you please enable voice input from the microphone so that I can practice speaking as well? These features would make your plugin even more awesome and useful. Thank you for your hard work and creativity. Please let me know if these are possible to implement. Cheers, Chen

Risk impact

SpeakIt! - Text to speech for Microsoft Edge requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

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

SpeakIt! - Text to speech for Microsoft Edge has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge 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 an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
