Microsoft version 83.0.472.0 Edge Canary which is based on Chromium, allows you to easily listen to the website you are interested in. It's a useful feature that works much better than the Windows announcer.
The browser Edge based on Chromium has a new feature called Pronunciation. With this you can listen to a page on the internet, whether it is in Greek or in English. This feature is currently only available in the trial version of Cannary 83.0.472.0 and is expected to come later in the fixed version.
Our tests in the Canary version showed that it works seamlessly, rendering Greek with the voice of "Stefanos", the robotic voice of Microsoft. It works much better than the Windows announcer in general, because it only targets web pages and thus does not require complexity and text targeting.
So if you have vision problems or you are just an audio guy and for example you want to listen to a historical text instead of reading it, then all you have to do is download it Edge Canary (which can run in parallel and without any problems with the stable version of Microsoft Edge) and try Pronunciation.
Let's see how you can do it:
1. go here and download the last one Edge Canary
2. Install it and run it.
3. Go to the website of your choice, for example iguru.gr, enter one of our articles and in the browser click on the icon that looks like a book with a loudspeaker.
4. The page will enter "reader mode". That is, the images, the ads will be removed and only the text with the links will be left.
5. Hover your mouse over the configuration bar that has the url, and you will see a line with a submenu appear. In it, press the command "Speak".
6. Immediately "Stefanos" will start reading the text having the whole page somewhat dark and illuminating only the word he utters each time.
In this mode, as you will see, you have the basic audio play buttons (pause, play, forward, backward) so you can manage the pronunciation.
