And now, the newest build of the update immerses users into a greater reading experience through Microsoft Edge’s ability to read eBooks out loud.

To do so, open an eBook and press the Read aloud button. You’ll find it located at the top-right corner of Edge. Even cooler, under Voices, you’ll find a few accents you can choose from. Each one also has enhanced quality version.

When you enable this feature, you’re going to be able to see the vital text of the article, its headline, and pictures. You’ll have the option of changing background color and the font size. This will turn out to be pretty useful if you’re one of those reading-in-the-dark enthusiasts.

Here are the steps to make Microsoft Edge read to you:

You have more options available while it reads, such as pausing, playing or switching to an earlier paragraph or to the next one. You can also change the reader’s speed from the same Voice button.

If you decide to restore original settings, press the dropdown arrow beneath the Voice button, click a voice, and hit the blue X. You’ll return to the original settings for the reading.

Give it a try and enjoy!
