We show you how Microsoft Edge is able to read the web pages we visit

Voice assistants are here to stay. As the years go by, the number of functions they offer is increasing in order to become a collaborator that we will not be able to do without in the future. If we talk about Windows 10, we have to talk about Cortana, one of the oldest assistants on the market.

With the arrival of Windows 10, Microsoft's assistant arrived on the market to stay, thus becoming the first wizard on a desktop operating system. A year later Siri arrived on macOS, an assistant that is still very fair in terms of functionality and abilities. Here we show you a Microsoft Edge feature that will probably be very useful to you.

While it is true that Microsoft's browser it is not among the most used on the market, where Chrome is king, Edge offers us a functionality that is more than one occasion we have surely needed, especially when we are reading an article on a web page that turns out to be too long.

In these cases, if we use Edge, we can use Cortana so that read us the article in question while we carry out any other task. Here we show you the steps to follow so that Cortana reads aloud the web page we want.

  • First of all we go to the web page that we want to be read by Cortana.
  • Then if we want to read a part, we select it, otherwise Cortana will read the entire web.
  • Next, we go to the options menu and click on Out loud reading.

At that moment, Cortana will begin to highlight the phrase she is reading (blue color) along with the word she is reading at that moment (yellow color). If we want to stop reading, we go to the playback control located just below the navigation bar.
