Here I would like to update that Read aloud feature is not available on the Microsoft Edge.
I am not getting this feature in my Ubuntu operating system. Please let me know if this feature is there in the development release.

You may always share your idea through Feedback option in Microsoft Edge.

Does it happen in Microsoft Edge stable release too?
Try update your Microsoft Edge and see if problem persist?
the OP says "my Ubuntu operating system" and you can see it in the attached screenshot as well.
Edge for Linux at the moment is only available in Dev channel, neither beta nor stable.

this is part of this post published by Edge developers:
"We’re sure you’re curious about what is available with this version of Edge! While we are working to ensure that every feature in our Windows and Mac Dev channels is available in our Linux version, there are a few features that will not be available at launch. Sync (and its related services), read aloud, and differential updates will not be available immediately with Edge on Linux. We are working hard to bring these to users as quickly as possible, while also ensuring it’s done right. Once we know these changes are implemented, you will see them mentioned in Josh’s summary posts. Additionally, if any of this change before we launch, we will work to ensure y’all are notified."
also, you can report any issues or share feedback or feature requests via the “Send Feedback” tool, either via the “…” (“Settings and More”) menu in Microsoft Edge, or by pressing Alt+Shift+I.
by the way, here is the Edge insider community for future posts :)

Two years later, this still isn't working any updates on this @HotCakeX? The reason I used edge over other browsers is because of the read-aloud feature.

@isTofu_ Sadly Microsoft decided that accessibility features for Linux are not that important.

I'm confused as to why it was removed too. It was working at one time under Ubuntu for me and then was removed a bit over a year ago. Someone in another post said it was removed after upgrading from v98 to v99.
It works on Android just fine. That would suggest to me there is no technical reason it will not work.

Read aloud is one of my favourite features under MS edge browser. I hope MS can bring the feature back.

@HotCakeX On any Linux distro I've tried. It was there at one time, but was removed something like 2 years ago. By 'any' I can say for sure I've tried Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04, Elementary, and Pop!_OS. I think I've also tried Fedora just to do something different.
It's there on Windows and on Android.
