The learning tools are integrated with the Microsoft Edge browser, which gives readers in your class more options for interacting with the text. Use the learning tools in Microsoft Edge to have any web page or PDF file read aloud to you as you follow the words on the screen.
The immersive reader in Microsoft Edge now has learning tool features such as reading aloud, page topics, text size, syllables, and word highlighting.
Let Microsoft Edge Read your E-books Aloud
This new feature also supports all non-storable EPUB files. Currently the list of supported languages is limited to the following languages: r-EG, ca-ES, da-DK, de-DE, en-AU, en-CA, en-GB, en-IN, en-US, es-ES, es-MX, fi-FI, fr-CA, fr-FR, it-IT, ja-JP, nb-NO, nl-BE, nl-NL, pt-BR, pt-PT, sv-SE, tr-TR, zh-CN.
The new ebook section allows users to change the font and size of text and to create bookmarks. You can use the table of contents or the search bar at the bottom of the browser to browse your ebook collection and ask Cortana to define certain words. You can also use Edge to read your favorite eBooks even when you are offline.
