Introducing Immersive Reader, a new Azure Cognitive Service

Spread the love

During the summer a new Azure Cognitive Service was announced, the Immersive Reader in the Language category. Developers can now use this service to embed inclusive capabilities into their apps for enhancing text reading and comprehension for users regardless of age or ability.


The Immersive Reader can boost reading and comprehension by providing a full set of proven literacy-enhancing features. Users are engaged through multi-sensory, multilingual learning that includes reading aloud, translating into different languages, highlighting specific lines of text, and visualizing word meanings through illustrations. On top of that the Immersive Reader Supports:

  • Translation in more than 60 languages
  • API calls to quickly embed the service
  • Continuous optimization based on inclusion research


There is no charge to use Immersive Reader during preview so we can use it freely until the service goes live!
