◆ Assign keyboard shortcut 'n' to turn on / off the reading function in ReaderView
Firefox has a feature called 'ReaderView' that displays only the text of blogs and articles. On pages that support ReaderView, a text icon is displayed in the address bar, and clicking this will take you to ReaderView.

At this time, you can switch on / off the function to read aloud sentences by clicking the headphone icon from the menu displayed on the left side of the screen.

The change is that clicking this icon can now be done with the keyboard shortcut 'n'. Considering that the reading function is a function that 'does not have to look at the screen', it can be said that the ability to turn the function on / off with only a shortcut key has improved usability.
