The Microsoft Edge received several new features in the latest updates, improving the overall performance of the browser and adding new features, making it more productive and being a direct competitor against Opera, Firefox, and Chrome, which has also been investing in new features on the platform, either on desktop or mobile. Among the tools recently added to Microsoft’s browser is the so-called ‘advanced reading mode’, which allows you to configure text to make it more efficient and is a viable option for users, including support for Office suite applications.
What is advanced reading for?
This feature is not available in Google Chrome and allows the user to read the content of a website more easily, being possible to enable the so-called ‘focus mode’ and remove the distractions that are displayed on the page. This tool also adds other features, allowing you to set some grammar settings and customize text preferences, making it easier to read.
Activate the function
In order to use advanced reading mode, you must update your browser to its latest version. The feature is available in a stable version, so all users can access the function. Updating the program can be done easily, just go to the Microsoft Edge settings and check if a new version is available.
On the website page, you will see two icons in the upper right corner, in the URL area. Tap on the first one. The second is to add the links to favorites, allowing quick access via the menu.
Okay, now you’re using Edge’s advanced reading mode. Note that there are no more ads or recommendations for other stories on the page, ensuring uninterrupted reading. If you want to make some settings, just tap on the options highlighted in the image below and change the reading preferences.
The first function enables read-aloud, in which all text is read by the browser AI, highlighting the words. In this feature, you can change the pronunciation speed or select another narrator.
In ” Text Preferences ‘ there are several settings that can be modified in order to read fluency. Among the available options are: changing the text size/spacing and changing the theme, customizing the background color to avoid eye fatigue, very common during continuous exposure to the Internet.
In ‘ Grammatical Tools ‘ you will have at your disposal the possibility of enabling modes of highlighting some types of words, making advanced reading highlight nouns, verbs, adjectives or adverbs, a very useful function for students.
Finally, the browser also features other didactic functions and an efficient focus mode, linearly highlighting the current line. Another interesting feature is called ‘Picture Dictionary’, in which an image is displayed over the highlighted word. Look:
