Will an epub reader be added for this version of Edge that is based on chromium? I ask this because it appears that support for reading epub books will be dropped from the original version of edge which makes me concerned that epub reading support will not be added to this version of edge that is based on chromium. As a person who is visually impaired, I rely on the read aloud feature for epub books on the original version of edge to read books. If there are no plans to add epub reading to this version of edge, is there an epub reader that will be made available that has text to speech functionality available or will Microsoft make one available?
