  2. Extend the use of tab to enable text navigation

    Now tab just puts the selected word one position forward. While holding tab it would be nice if I could move the word selection with the arrow keys. That way if I lose the thread of the content, I can easily move back to a position where that is not the case.

  5. picture dictionary

    I'd like to See Picture dictionary work with foreign languages. It seems that I can translate word by word and have pictures if the original text is English.

    But the if the original text isn't English than picture dictionary doesn't work. But the individual word translation still does

  6. Add Immersive Reader functionality to PowerPoint.

    In my school the teachers use a lot of PowerPoint presentations these are passed on to students via Teams. This adds a significant amount of work for the Teaching Assistants to put them into OneNote as printouts so the OCR function makes them usable by Immersive Reader.

    It would be great to see Immersive Reader available in PowerPoint making the presentations far more accessible to our students.

  7. Can I record the directions as some words are not pronounced correctly?

    Directions pronounce “record” as like LP record instead of please record your voice. Same spelling-different pronunciation and meaning.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. ✅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 👍

  17. 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!

  18. 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
