Hey Edge team & insiders,

Recently I got Read Aloud for PDF Files in recent Canary builds.

I had some feedback to share regarding this.

When the Read Aloud works on the reading the text, it should give pauses on line breaks. 

To recreate, open https://code.visualstudio.com/shortcuts/keyboard-shortcuts-windows.pdf and chose to Read Aloud the file. There is no pause given between different shortcuts. 

This may be impacting Read Aloud on webpages as well.

Please consider working on this.

I second this. I was shown that the only current work around was to convert PDFs to word documents. It doesn't just have issues with pausing other words it gives all new sounds to. A year later and no fix...
