    How to Enable Read Aloud for PDF Files in Microsoft Edge Chromium

    Microsoft Edge Chromium has received an improvement to the built-in Read Aloud feature. Now it can be enabled for PDF files you read in the browser.

    This feature is not new to the Edge app. Its legacy EdgeHTML counterpart already had it available for long. As of now, the Read Aloud feature is a bit behind its predecessor, as it lacks features like notes, page views, and more. Microsoft has updated the Canary branch of the browser with a new Read Aloud option that finally adds support for PDF files.

    The feature is currently experimental, which means that it is hidden behind a flag.

    In this video, you’ll learn the steps To Enable Read Aloud for PDF Files in Microsoft Edge Chromium. Use these steps to enable. 

    01. Open Microsoft Edge. 

    02. Type the following in the address bar.


    03. Select Enabled from the drop-down menu next to the Read Aloud in PDF option. 

    04. Restart Microsoft Edge.

    You are done! Now, open a PDF file in Microsoft Edge, and click on Read Aloud on the menu. The regular options like speed and voice can be customized for PDFs as well.
