  2. 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.

  3. It'd be great if we could add words to the reader's dictionary. Since my notes are short hand it'd be great if they knew w/ means with, etc.

    It'd be great if we could add words to the reader's dictionary. Since my notes are shorthand it'd be great if they knew what my notes mean. I prefer reading my notes out loud when I'm studying for a test because it helps me soak in information better. Silent reading I reserve for when I'm reading from a textbook and taking notes. But when I'm reviewing my notes to make connections and see what I need to work on, I prefer reading out loud, however, because my notes are shorthand the reader doesn't read smth as something, envt as environment,…

  8. Convert by pattern

    Let's say i want to ignore
    http://www.google.com because i do not really want to
    hear the full url .

    So what if there is an option that i can convert
    it by pattern like ..

    'Let's convert something that starts with "http://" into "URL"'

    right ? then i can just know that it is URL .

  9. Keep playing when screen is locked

    On the iPhone app the immersive reader stops when you lock the screen. Sometimes I like listening to my notes when doing other things so if It could keep playing while my phone is locked that would be great.

  10. dictate accent

    In the Dictate Set Up include a test to tell English speakers without an (American, Canadian, British, Indian or Australian) accent which English accent they should use when using dictate as we're having trouble choosing which one to use for a Kiwi (Nz) accent. :)

  14. Pin side panel

    I'm a PhD student. I use the 'section group' section in OneNote 2016 for each chapter, and the 'section' tab for each part of the chapter i.e. introduction, argument 1 etc. Pages are paragraph 1/2 etc with research notes intended underneath. I usually have OneNote resized to the left-hand side of the page and a word document on the right. I just upgraded to windows ten and realised that when I try to re-size the new OneNote, the side panel disappears, and I can only see 1 page at a time. There's no way to pin the side-panel on the…

  15. set default text color to white (or others) in Win10

    Can I set text color to white by default? Because I set page to black. What frustrating me is when I add a text box, the text color will be "black" automatically. And I found no solution to set default text color.

  16. Add Adverbs to Parts of Speech Highlighting

    I'd love to see you add word highlighting for adverbs. We've been using Immersive Reader in a high school writing class to check student writing. However, one skill we need to refine is the over-use of adverbs in argumentative writing.

  17. Add Pronouns to Parts of Speech Highlighting

    One of the skills I have a hard time helping students with is strengthening their writing by using nouns in the place of pronouns. I would love to see Parts of Speech highlighting expanded in Immersive Reader to include Pronouns like:
    he
    she
    it
    they
    them
    That way, I can start using Immersive Reader as a writing revision tool.

  18. Dictation voice and speed

    We just started using dictation for our 9 year old daughter and she has to read slower. If you change the speed of the dictation, then the voice just drags. Please add functionality so that when you slow the reading speed down, the voice does not drag.

  20. learning tools print

    Learning tools enables the document to be broken by syllable. Enabling of print functions at this point would be beneficial. Teachers could create dyslexic friendly tests.
