Firefox Reader Mode Will Finally Have a Keyboard Shortcut As Firefox 50 Arrives

firefox-reader

An enhanced set of Reader Mode features, including spoken narration and line-width spacing options, are among the changes that arrived in Firefox 49 this September, but they didn’t end there.

Firefox 50 will be due in October (next month) and it will be adding a keyboard shortcut for Reader Mode. the change will be hardly revolutionary but we can’t deny that it will be a handy improvement because it will help improve its accessibility features.

At the moment, the Reader Mode keyboard shortcut is bound to Alt+R on Windows and Linux, and Cmd+Alt+R on macOS. The shortcuts are unlikely to conflict with any other system set shortcuts but between now and the release of the browser the commands might be changed if anything goes wrong.
