My web site is dedicated to the people with limited accessibility so I was also using the option Text2Speech within Edge with the right click on the mouse and it was read with automatic detection of the language - even Slovene language very well and a great accent.
I tried the new feature of Pano2VR but it seems that is limited only to the 'Compute' English language. Is it possible that it uses Microsoft's Edge option of text2speech?... or to make a button script for implementing the right button (Ctrl+Shift+U) > Read aloud.

Hi Bostjan,
You are correct it uses the computers "voice".
This was a good way to save lots of mp3 files, but if your voice is set to speak your language and you select this then it should ok.
As an example, I am English so any German text will sound a bit odd spoken by my computer.
But open it on a German computer that speaks German then it will sound OK, but the English may sound odd.
So far that's what I have experienced.
I assume a local screen reader would sound the same.
Regards,
Hopki
