It’s not surprising to see a collection of browsers running on our PCs and other mobile devices. Most of us use them for reading e-books. The latest build of Windows 10 features a native ebook store that allows you to purchase your favorite e-books. Besides, this, it also offers an immersing reading experience by allowing you to have your web page, PDF or eBooks read aloud by Microsoft Edge browser.
All you need to do is fire up Edge, open an eBook, press the “Read aloud” button located at the top-right corner of the browser, sit back, relax and listen to your favorite eBook being read out to you.
Under Voices there are a limited number of accents to choose from in English including the US, UK, etc. Each of these accents also has an enhanced quality version. For the default US version, the difference between the default and enhanced quality is pretty subtle.
When enabled, the feature will let you see the only headline, text, and any pictures that are vital to the article. You can even change the background color (for reading in the dark!) and font size within the reading view.
Let’s see how to have your book read aloud in Windows 10.
Make Microsoft Edge (HTML) read out eBook
Microsoft Edge (Chromium) will no longer support e-books that use the .epub file extension. Download and use one of these ePub Reader apps and use it on Edge (Chromium).

In Windows 10, you can now also access this feature via the Edge right-click context menu. Using this feature you can make EDge read aloud a webpage or a PDF file as well.
You can also pause or stop the reading, using the control which you see at the top of your screen.
I am sure that some of you will find this feature very useful.
