Microsoft Word 2013 team today detailed the new Reading Mode experience in upcoming version of Office. The team had following in mind before designing this new experience,

    This is nice. Now Microsoft just needs to include a feature to invoke the Word reading mode from IE 10, so that we can easily read webpages converted into text, like Reader in Safari–and add a universal Oxford dictionary, again, like in iOS–and I will happily buy a Win 8 tablet.

    Unfortunately, until Microsoft reveals those two features, I will be stuck on iOS.
