Re: How to get firefox to read just text on a website?

Can any of these modes be used by cut and paste? I often find myself needing to grab text from a web page to paste into a ascript for the sighted readers at our Talking newspaper to read.
At present the only way seems to be to grab it all then fiddle about deleting the like this more here and sundry links out and reformatting the result. If the ability to read without the clutter exists, it would lessen the workload and annoyance factor considerably.
For the record this has become important recently due to the tendency that newsletter production has gone down the lazy mans rout of just saying the headline and click here, which I hate with a passion and so do most, but that seems to be the way the stuff is going.

Hi!
Chrome also has an add on call Just Read.
It does the same thing as the reading mode in Edge, where all the clutter is gone, and leaves just the text on the page!

Not sure about IE but Edge, Alt-D and tab to a button labeled Enter
Reading View. Mainly available on sites featuring articles.

If it's the Reader Mode you want, it's under the View menu.
