Have Cortana read text/subtitles out loud
That would be great if we could have this on Xbox for people like toddlers, autistic, elders and blind people etc. who have trouble reading or recognising on screen words on anything even any games and apps using Kinect manually and automatically for those without Kinects or microphones.
Please allow chat text and menu options and urinalysis items highlighted to be read on narrator. My 6 is a great gamer but has to ask for help to find items on Minecraft
Not sure what the reason for wanting subtitles read out would be as they're already voiced, but voiced menus in games would be great for a number of audiences.
Could one of the mods edit this title to say "narrator" instead of "Cortana"? Narrator is designed to read the dashboard and other interface elements and the addition of in-game menu/interface reading, as well as the possibility of subtitles (which I hadn't really considered as a gamer with no sight who doesn't necessarily need them) would be fantastic.

The narration is already included in the new experience
they got something like this if you hold the Xbox button
no don't they had this feature in a earlier version of windows 10 for phones it ended with cortana reading aloud a personal text message which shouldn't ever be repeated in public
please add a screen reader for blind people so they can read the menus and stuff in the xbox system, we can't find a sighted person to help us all the time, so please please add this feature.
