Today, we’re thrilled to release version 1.2 of the Immersive Reader SDK for Azure Applied AI.  The Immersive Reader SDK allows third party apps and partners to add Immersive Reader right into their products. We’ve had scores of partners integrate the Immersive Reader, and some of them are listed in the image below. The Immersive Reader helps people of all abilities, including dyslexia, ADHD, emerging readers, non-native speakers, people with visual impairments.  If there’s an app you love to use in your classroom and you would love to see an Immersive Reader icon show up there soon, let them know.  


The 1.2.0 release brought in several new features and several important new Samples. See the full list of changes at
