  1. It would be a useful teaching tool to be able to print the immersive reader adjustments

    Can you print the document with the immersive reader adjustments in place. Often, in primary schools, children do not have their own computer and so it would be useful to print the text for them to read.

  4. ✅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 👍

  9. 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.

  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.

  14. 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.

  15. Immersive reader is terrific. Even better if you were able to edit the text within Immersive.

    To help students review their work, it would be so helpful if the text could be edited in the immersive reader window.

  16. 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

  17. Make immersive reader read .pdf files

    It would be great if Immersive Reader can read pdf files uploaded in OneNote. This would give more access to material available in a classroom.

    At present, It does not recognize the text in a pdf file.

  18. 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!

  19. 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
