Greetings, Helperbird Family! 👋

As the founder of Helperbird, I've been deeply engaged in the conversations about the challenges faced by many of you with the "Use Immersive Reader on Website" Chrome extension. This extension, is amazing but this error is appearing. The error message "newselaimmersivereader.cognitiveservices.azure.com’s server IP address could not be found," suggesting the extension may no longer be under active development.

Addressing the Challenge: The Solution with Helperbird

In light of this, I want to reach out directly, especially to those who might discover this post through forums like Reddit, and introduce the solution we've crafted at Helperbird. We have developed our own Immersive Reader feature not just as an alternative, but as an enhancement, supporting a wide range of platforms including Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and iOS.

Helperbird's Immersive Reader: Features and Accessibility

Most importantly, we are excited to announce that the Immersive Reader feature in Helperbird is accessible for free on any website or PDF's. This commitment to accessibility ensures that, when you need it most, our free version supports text highlights of up to 2500 characters. To use it, simply highlight your desired text and click the Immersive Reader button.
