    So we recently got 'Recognize Text' and it is great. But I see an opportunity to build upon this functionality to provide even greater value.

    Users already have to allow screen recording permission for Recognize Text and other tools, why not use that to actually read the screen?

    It would really be great if this can activate from Keyboard Shortcut, automatically reading the selected text, or from top of Webpage or PDF/epub Page if no text is selected. If possible please include speed manipulation [x0.25, x0.5, x0.75, x1, x1.25, x1.5, x1.75, x2, x2.25, x2.5] etc.

    Read Aloud plugin for Firefox/Chrome may be a good place to start, I think it may be open source? I searched for screen reader and didn't see anything aside from 'Recognize Text'. Pardon me if this has been suggested before.
