We're excited to share with you that the Read Aloud feature, previously available in Word on desktop and mobile devices, is now available in Word for iPad and Android tablets as well. That means you can now use the feature across all your devices and platforms!

 

Read Aloud takes advantage of the latest text-to-speech technology, enabling you to “proof-listen” to your writing and catch any errors. You can also use Read Aloud for tablets to give your eyes a break while listening to documents created by others.

 

This feature uses cutting-edge neural voices developed by Azure Cognitive Services, which offer a more natural listening experience. By bringing Read Aloud to tablets, we’ve made the service available no matter where you are or what device you’re using.
