Reader Mode not functional -Version 1.21.74 Chromium: 89.0.4389.72 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Version 1.21.74 Chromium: 89.0.4389.72 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

when clicking View the drop down window always shows 
Enter Reader Mode as grayed out 
so there is no option to enter reader mode
regardless of which website i choose 

i've read a number of old threads that are now closed about this but can not find any fix

has anyone a suggestion ?

I believe that the feature is behind a flag currently and can be enabled by going to brave://flags and searching for a #brave-speedreader flag and setting it’s value to Enabled.


thankyuuu , i had no idea about Flags

i did a search and i enabled 2 things



but unfortunately it has not resolved my issue

appeared next to the website address
which allows you to click Speed Reader either On or Off

thankyuuu,your suggestion has created some positive magic
