Microsoft Immersive Reader

This is one of those Microsoft Teams features that is often overlooked as a capability reserved for educational institutions.

The immersive reader speaks the text on a channel aloud at varying speeds. If you’re struggling to focus on a piece of text, or you need to grab information while your eyes are focused elsewhere, the Immersive Reader is useful functionality.

The immersive reader can also give you a translation of the text in many different languages.

Click on one of the messages you would like to 'read' with the immersive reader .. then click on the 3 dots and select the reader from your drop-down menu.
