Microsoft Immersive Reader

Microsoft Immersive Reader is a feature built into several Microsoft products such as the Edge browser and MS Word and helps people read the text more easily. The tool allows users to customize the color scheme, font size, text spacing, the number of lines displayed, and reads text aloud without activating an external screen reader. These features help people with dyslexia, low vision, visual processing disorders, and other print disabilities.
