Well this feature is available in Adobe Reader since long. But I didn't notice it in a browser until Microsoft has added this feature to its Edge browser. If you're using the latest version of Windows 10 then your Edge browser can talk actually! Yes, it's tested and true! Let's see how . . .
Before you can start your edge browser to read aloud, make sure you're using the latest version of Windows 10.
Microsoft Edge can read aloud your web contents, E-book and any other PDF files. If you wanna listen to the contents of a web page, then -
- Run Microsoft Edge from your PC.
- Now visit a web page i.e. www.markspcsolution.com
- After loading the page, click right mouse button somewhere and choose Read aloud.
- Now your browser will start reading the page word by word and line by line till the end!
It can read out PDF files and E-books too!
Not only web page, this newest browser can read your e-book and PDF files too.
- Locate your PDF file or e-book first.
- Then right click on it and choose Open with Microsoft Edge.
- After opening the document, right click on it and choose Read aloud.
- And then enjoy listening!
When your browser starts reading, you can control it from the toolbar that appears when the reading starts -
- You can forward and backward between paragraphs
- Change the voice (You can choose between 3 voices)
- Control the speed
- Pause the reading or cancel it
The pronunciation is almost accurate except some words and shortcuts.
Do the Same thing in Adobe Reader!
Adobe reader has also this reading feature. Simply open a PDF file using Adobe reader and then -
- Go to the View Menu
- At the bottom choose - Read Out Loud
- Select Activate Read Out Loud
Hope you will enjoy listening to your browser . . .
