What is “Read Aloud” and how do I use it?

What it does

The Read Aloud tool will read whole Word documents, Outlook emails and web pages (viewed in the Microsoft Edge browser) aloud to you.

How to use it

Read Aloud is available in the desktop and online versions of Word. Instructions on how to use it are available on the Listen to your Word documents web page. Click on the platform you are using (Windows, MacOS, Web etc.) to get the relevant instructions.

Read Aloud also works in Outlook. Instructions on how to use it are available on the Listen to your Outlook email messages with Read Aloud web page.
