  1. It would be helpful if the immersive reader recognized headings and separated them from regular text when reading aloud.

    For example, if you go to https://wke.lt/w/s/dk2oKF and use the Immersive Reader on the "Welcome to Wakelet" section, you will see how the heading merges with the following text. There needs to be a pause between the reading of the headings and the text that follows.

  2. the ability for the listener to highlight or take notes without the immersive reader stopping

    as students get older and as college and university students use this technology, it would be very helpful to be able to take notes or highlight key points while continuing to listen to the text being read.

  5. ✅Outlining each spoken word!

    I think it would be awesome to outline each word in a different color from the background. Using high contrast could be useful 👍

  6. The Arabic letters are separated with a space in between each letter!

    The Arabic text used is somewhat weird and all letters are separated with a space in between each letter! Please consider changing fonts in Arabic and making the letters connected!

  7. Adding an option to pause/stop reading after each word

    It would be useful to control the speed of reading even further by allowing users to pause/stop on every word

  10. Adding Canadian indigenous languages such as Cree, Dakota, OjiCree, etc.

    Not only can this be an invaluable support for our students who speak these languages as their home language but it is a step towards reconciliation for both our students and previous generations.

  16. Immersive Reader Extension for Edge

    It would be great if you made Immersive Reader as an Edge extension. Such as the one shown in this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/use-immersive-reader-on-w/fmidkjgknpkbmninbmklhcgaalfalbdh

  17. Connect Immersive Reading to the public libraries data base of digital reading material.

    If you connected Immersive Reading to a data base of digital reading material (the public library) I'd need only a single tool for all my diverse learners, ESL, struggling readers and dyslexic students. Right now I use Kindle which is difficult to control even with the parental controls on and it needs constant monitoring. Combined with the other MS applications, I'd need only that single tool to teach and provide all my students with reading material.

  18. Show word stress.

    It is good to see that, we can see the word split into syllables. Could you also please show, which part of the word is stressed? Such as 'Pas'.sen.ger

  19. (OneNote feedback) add search by date created, not modified.

    Adding a date created search option is very useful, and you can track things down much easier.

  20. Allow the translation feature to be accessed in Microsoft Word, not just in OneNote

    You can use the translation feature in Immersive Reader in OneNote, but this is not available in Word. It would be very helpful to have this feature in Microsoft Word also! Thank you.
