IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have a tts engine on your android device, most android devices come with the engine but most do not have the language plugins, but the extension will prompt you to install them if they are missing. ALSO the chinese and japanese languages require a 3rd party tts engine and language plugins to work and they may have to be installed manually, but that shouldn't be a problem if you live in those countries.
