How to have a voice conversation with ChatGPT
- For PC
- For smartphones and tablets
I will introduce two different scenes.
First, I will introduce the case of the personal computer.
1. For PC
If you want to read ChatGPT replies on your computer, there are 3 ways:
- Use a plug-in for the web browser "Chrome" (Windows, Mac, Linux compatible)
- For Windows: Settings → "Ease of Access" → Turn on "Narrator"
- For Mac: Settings → "Read aloud content" → Read "selected item"
Personally , I recommend using the Chrome web browser plug-in (compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux) .
It is free to read aloud, supports voice input, and is easy to set up.

It was easy to read like this. You cannot choose the type of voice from a variety of voices.
The voice is slightly different depending on the device you are using, so if it is your smartphone, the voice may be slightly different.
What other reading methods are there?
In addition to the methods introduced this time, there are methods such as using APIs to link personal computers and Alexa, but the settings are a bit difficult for amateurs.
I tried to look it up, but unfortunately I thought I couldn't do it. So I won't introduce it here.
What is ChatGPT? (actual reply from ChatGPT)
ChatGPT is a form of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is a technology designed to make computers have human-like intelligence. ChatGPT can learn a lot of sentences, generate sentences and answer questions like a human being.
For example, if you ask ChatGPT, "What do dogs eat?", it can answer, "Dogs eat dog food." You can also generate sentences about dogs by saying "Tell me about dogs" to ChatGPT.
ChatGPT understands words just like humans do, no more, no less. ChatGPT cannot have emotions and thoughts like humans.
ChatGPT Wow! It writes like it was written by a real person.
It's hard to follow the letters with your eyes
Conversation with ChatGPT is a lot of fun, but it's tiring to follow the text of the replies with your eyes...
For people who are not good at reading text and find it easier to obtain information through their ears, this function of reading aloud is very meaningful.
I also prefer to listen to the text rather than read it, so Ondoku's Ondoku3-ChatGPT is very useful.
Ondoku3-ChatGPT also supports voice input, so it feels like you are actually having a conversation.
Have a voice conversation with ChatGPT
Try using the Ondoku3-ChatGPT plug-in to read it out loud when using ChatGPT. It's free and easy to set up.
Having your reply read aloud is very futuristic.
The singularity has finally arrived!
In order not to be left behind by the tides of the times, I would like to enjoy this new era by coming into contact with new things more and more.
"Ondoku" is a Text-to-Speech service that anyone can use for free without installation. You can also use an extension ( Ondoku3-ChatGPT ) that allows you to talk with ChatGPT for free.
