Microsoft Edge can now read web pages to you in several languages

Brad Stephenson

Microsoft Edge got an update this week and along with several cool improvements and a new fullscreen mode, the internet browser also gained a new feature that allows it to read a page’s content to users in a variety of languages.

To get the browser to read a web page, simply highlight the chosen text, right-click on the mouse, and click on Read aloud. Alternatively, users can also highlight the text and then choose the Read aloud option from the main Edge menu in the top-right corner of the app.

To have the entire web page’s content read to you, simply select Read aloud without highlighting anything.

Once the feature is activated, a special toolbar will drop down from the top of the open browser tab. The narration can be paused from this menu and, by clicking on the person icon, the reading speed can be adjusted and the voice itself can be changed.
