Immersive Reader comes to Outlook on the web and the OneNote for Windows 10 app...

Former Employee

In February, we announced the availability of the Microsoft Learning Tools Immersive Reader on Word Online and OneNote Online. As a result of customer demand, we are pleased to announce that Immersive Reader is now available for, Outlook on the web and the OneNote Windows 10 app. Immersive Reader includes a view that utilizes techniques proven to help people read more effectively, such as:

  • Read Aloud—Reads text out loud with simultaneous highlighting that improves decoding, fluency and comprehension while sustaining the reader’s focus and attention.
  • Spacing—Optimizes font spacing in a narrow column view to improve reading fluency for users with visual crowding issues.
  • Syllables—Shows the breaks between syllables to enhance word recognition and decoding.
  • Parts of Speech—Supports writing instruction and grammar comprehension by identifying verbs, nouns and adjectives.

Great features!  It is very easy to use and I like that its through the Office 365 portal.

The Microsoft Learning Tools are amazing in Word Online and now Outlook on the web, too!

Just tried it in OneNote Online, and it didn't work.   The option is in the View menu, but do I have to download the plugin for it to work?

Jeff,  not sure it exists for OneNote online...this is for the OneNote for Windows 10 app.
