I am trying to test Immersive Reader and Read Aloud in Edge for our students, but I have found that the functionality on some sites, such as when using embedded H5P, functions differently in Edge than it does in Chrome. In Edge, If I select the text, right click, and choose Immersive Reader, I get a "no data found" 

If I select Read Aloud, then it gives me the basic read in line functionality with only being able to choose voice instead of line spacing etc. that comes with Immersive reader. 

On the very same page in Chrome with the extension, I can choose the "Help me read this" function, and it opens in a new page with the Read Aloud as well as line spacing colour etc. It has all the features such as picture dictionary.

To me this doesn't make any sense why the Google Chrome extension would work better.

Any ideas if there is something I am missing?
