Windows 10 Tip: Get more out of reading online with Grammar Tools in Microsoft Edge

By / Writer, Windows Blog

Reading online is convenient, but did you know it can also help you get more out of books and articles? Microsoft Edge has built-in learning tools that make it easier to read EPUB books and websites in Reading view: Grammar Tools.

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update added Grammar Tools support that allow you to break words into syllables and highlight parts of speed, such as nouns, verbs and adjectives.

These tools can improve reading comprehension through increasing fluency for English language learners or readers of other languages, and they can also help build confidence for emerging readers learning to read at higher levels. Breaking words into syllables improves word recognition, while highlighting parts of speech supports reading instruction and can improve writing quality.

Click on the image below to see how to use Grammar Tools:
