Microsoft Edge TTS refuses to read .pdf files

Copper Contributor

Hi there,


[Reposting this here on the suggestion of an 'Independent Advisor' on the Microsoft Community forums.]


I think the native MS Edge TTS is one of the best on the market, but it currently fails to initiate when I try and get it to read .pdf documents (even when opened in the browser and when the text is super-clear so OCR should be working). I have done everything from clearing my cache to reinstalling MS Edge and not importing anything or signing in, so that it's a completely fresh version, but the problem persists.


I have also tried on Beta, Developer and Canary as well, with no luck.


After a quick search online, I can see I'm not the only one with this problem - are there any fixes on the horizon? This is a real challenge from an accessibility standpoint.


Kind Regards,
