Text-To-Speech on the Fire?
A friend wants to buy an e-reader for his girlfriend, so he asked my advice. He had a couple of questions I don't know the answer to:
On the Fire, can you read ebooks the public librarys have available?
Will the Fire read aloud the text in Kindle books or library ebooks?
Yes, I know Authors have say over the matter in Kindle books, but so far I haven't found any way to activate read-aloud in any book on my Fire. Did they leave that feature out?
26 views and no one knows an answer, eh? I've been digging through the options/menus and haven't seen any clue on how to turn on speech reading. Guessing they left it out of the Fire in a hurry to get android adapted for their uses.
The Fire has no text-to-speech capability.
If your library has ebooks in Kindle format, then they can be read on the Fire.
There is no text to speech on the kindle fire. Sorry
There is an audible book service app, but no text to speech.
You just made up my mind for me.

The text to speech is the solution. The Touch has a 3.5mm plug so I can just listen instead of read.
I'm getting a Fire for my daughter but want a Touch for myself

Interestingly...Pico TTS is included in my apps listing and I don't recall porting it over....

The Fire is a backlit screen so not problem reading any time of day or night with a control for the brightness..It also has text sizing and spacing and 3 different colors white on black, black on white and black on tan. Reading is a pleasure on this Kindle.. I find it as good as my old paper ink Kindle.
I do to, except my old Kindle will read most books to me, whereas the Fire won't. At least not yet. Point of the thread.
