If you often read long articles or reports in your Microsoft Edge browser on iPad, then you can use the Read aloud feature in Microsoft Edge for iPad. Read aloud is an in-built feature of Microsoft Edge that helps you read webpage content without reading it yourself. Your device will read it for you, and you can listen to the voice as it reads. The best thing is that you can set different accents so that you understand the content better and in your native accent.
It is helpful when you need to read long or lots of paragraphs in a day, and you want to accelerate the process. As no third-party application is required, you can quickly enable it for your benefit. Let’s check out all the features and options so that you can get started with this functionality.
How to use Read aloud in Microsoft Edge for iPad
To use Read aloud in Microsoft Edge for iPad, follow these steps-
- Open a webpage that you want to read.
- Tap on the text and hold it until you get some popup options.
- Select Read aloud from the list of options.
First of all, you need to open a webpage in the Microsoft Edge browser on your iPad. Then, tap and hold a word in the content area that you want to listen to. It should fire up some options, and you need to choose Read aloud from the menu.
Now, your browser should start reading the content immediately.
There are some minimal settings that you should check. For example, you can find the play/pause button on the top menu bar. The next/previous paragraph buttons are visible around the play/pause button.
There is a settings gear button visible on the top-left corner. If you tap on it, it will open some settings to change the Reading rate and Voice. You can make the reading rate fast or slow using the bar visible on your screen.
If you want to change the voice or accent, you need to tap the current language option and select something from the list. Although it doesn’t have all the accents from across the globe, you can find something handy in the list.
