  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,…

  9. Offer Dyslexie font as a font option

    Offer the dyslexie font as a font options because it is a font that is specifically designed to make reading easier for people with dyslexia.

    I also think the word spacing should be a range, like how the line spacing is, rather than just being on or off so people can choose how big or small the word spacing is

  10. 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

  11. i would love to underline while listening

    While listening i would love to underline as an added option or / and write like i usually do with lenovo touch screen / Mouse

  12. (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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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 .

  17. Immerse Reader, better speed control

    Please give the Immerse Reader a better speed control. 0,75 is for the German Male voice to slow and 1 to fast. 0.85 should be perfect, but it would be nice if we could just input the number we want.

  18. dictate

    Using dictate to make bullet notes is impossible. The microphone stops recording after a few seconds of no audio. Maybe make a setting where it can dictate indefinitely, and be modified where the text appears where the cursor is.
    Using dictate to speak notes into one note would speed up note taking immensely since I can use the book to speak the main ideas, and then go back and using enter, tab, and shift+tab to make bullets and numbered notes. If dictate could simply read my words while I can make these adjustments I could note take multiple chapters at…

  19. Make it faster to read the text taken from picture.

    It takes about 10 minutes for a new picture to be readable with immersive reader. This is discouraging to use in class for assignments being handed out in real time. My kids need to be able to take a picture and follow along with the class right away
