The immersive reader enables enable learners by reducing visual crowding, highlighting text, breaking words into syllables, reading text aloud, and providing visual references.

Microsofts Immersive Reader is now incorporated into Canvas. The immersive reader has text decoding solutions to help build confidence for emerging readers through features like Line Focus and Picture Dictionary.

With features like Dictation and Read Aloud, you can hear text read aloud for multi-sensory processing, a technique to aid reading and comprehension. It also allows for the translation of words, or the entire text into over 60 languages (over 40 of them can be read aloud).

The Picture Dictionary enables you to view a picture representation of a specific word. Students can combine with Read Aloud for multi-sensory processing, a technique to aid reading and comprehension.

In addition to this students can personalise their experience by increasing or decreasing the size of text and change background colours.
