Microsoft Immersive Reader

What is this service?

The Microsoft Immersive Reader is a free tool built into Word, OneNote, Outlook, Office Lens, Microsoft Teams, Forms, Flipgrid, Minecraft Education Edition, and the Edge browser. It offers an alternative way to engage with content, having been designed as a tool to enhance and focus reading and writing skills. It does not replicate and cannot replace the full features and functionality of a screen reader.

Immersive Reader has a Read Aloud function, a picture viewer for individual words, and user controls for such items as:

  • Column width
  • Page color
  • Line focus
  • Text Spacing
  • Syllables

Immersive Reader supports multiple languages and also offers a translation feature, which can be used to translate individual words, or the entire document (it also works with the Read Aloud function).
