Thank you for pointing this out. It's always nice to hear others talk about Dyslexia here. I've resorted to using the browser's native text-to-speech/SpeechSynthesis API for most things. Though it is a wretched API. Have you come across any TTS solutions?

Nothing better that I'm aware of I'm afraid. There are some out-of-browser solutions, such as Google Cloud Text-to-Speech, Amazon Polly or Microsoft Azure (Cognitive Services Text-to-Speech). They take more setup although AWS Amplify makes using Amazon Polly less time consuming through its Text-to-Speech library.
