Read Aloud in Windows Edge

A great accessibility feature of the edge browser is Read Aloud. Read Aloud can improve the accessibility of web pages.

Read Aloud is a simple, but powerful tool that reads the text of a web page out loud.

In this video, we’ll look at a great accessibility feature of the edge browser called Read Aloud. Read Aloud can improve the accessibility of web pages and also help pupils improve their reading speed. It can also improve your productivity by reading aloud your articles while you continue with other tasks.
