@NicolSD- Maybe it's being revised. I noticed the "normal" voice sounds slower than it should. I compared it to other website voice readers. It's at though the Egde version's 1.00x should actually be the 1.25x to sound normal. The current 1.00 one sounds more like it should be 0.75x.

@jpbonner I too noticed this and would like it to be available as the new neural voices are amazing and really help me focus on what I am reading. The way I got around it right now is to upload the PDF to my onedrive and then just view it online. The read aloud works great, I just don't understand what makes it grayed out for local files.

Looks like some progress is being made here,
In the last 3 canary updates, I noticed Read Aloud is no longer grayed out
when I click on it, I get this
It's not reading anything for me but I also have problems getting Read Aloud functionality working on normal web pages either, so give it a try see how it works for you
