Microsoft Edge (Immersive reader- Read Aloud) not there

Occasional Visitor

Hi Team,


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.

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.

No, it was working and then they removed it. They didn't just decide to ignore people who have reading difficulties, they spat in their face by crippling a feature that was working perfectly.

Microsoft just hates disabled people. It's evident throughout their own OS, and now they're ruining other OSes out of spite.
