The Text-to-Speech is a great tool for “Extensive reading”, such as rapid reading of large quantities of textbook chapters, long scholarly articles, etc. for general understanding, with the focus generally on the overall meaning.
What this Tool does NOT do well: “Intensive reading”, which includes focused reading and learning in detail.
