Microsoft Edge for macOS beta adds Read Aloud accessibility feature

The latest Microsoft Edge for macOS Dev Channel build brings support for ‘Read Aloud,’ an accessibility feature that reads the text content of a webpage for visually-impaired users.
For those who might enjoy hearing content instead of reading it, it’s possible to right-click at the start of a paragraph and select ‘Read Aloud From Here.’ The feature will then read everything from that point unless the user pauses the session using the dedicated button.
Sitting next to the ‘play/pause’ button are the skip buttons for jumping back and forth between paragraphs.
Furthermore, there’s a speed adjustment tool, as well as a plethora of synthetic voices to suit different tastes. The Edge browser also added webpage translation back in April.
That said, the new accessibility feature came after Microsoft migrated its browser to Google Chromium for Insider builds(Beta, Dev and Canary). Early hands-on tests at MobileSyrup showed promising results even compared to Google Chrome.

Google packed a ‘Soli’ sensor into the Pixel 4, this is what it’s capable of

Google dropped exciting news on us today with the announcement that it packed a ‘Soli’ sensor into the Pixel 4, allowing users to interact with the phone without touching it.
In the announcement video, the company showcased a user swiping above the phone without touching it to change songs. The accompanying blog post added that Soli could be used to snooze alarms and silence phone calls.
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of or seen of Project Soli. A Google I/O 2015 video from the company’s Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP) showcased a little more about what we can expect from Soli.

In one of the videos, the sensor detects when a user makes their hand into a phone shape. This then triggers the phone to answer a call.
The sensor also can detect different materials. In the demo video, the technology could even tell the difference between a variety of metals and liquids in cups based on their density.

Another video from Google I/O in 2015 showed off how the system can be used..
