What I would also add is that your friend would likely qualify for services from the National Library Service, even if her vision loss is only temporary.

I do not know that for sure, but I hear they do have text to speech.I would verify that with customer service before ordering however.
I think they can also enlarge and chage contrast to assist in low vision.

Yes, thanks Dave. I plan to do so

I just want to make sure she gets what she needs.

Will all kindle readers read to her?

Thanks so much

first thought for me was Amazon...give them a call and instead of shipping it to you have them ship it directly to her.

Subject: [TechTalk] Info on a Kindle reader please







Hi all

Iโ€™ve never had one of these Kindle readers, so a friend of mine is having trouble seeing and is needing something to read to her until she gets her cataract procedure but canโ€™t have it done until this Coved clears up a bit.

She is in a home so it makes it difficult and she canโ€™t use her lap top anymore



I am needing help in locating a Kindle reader that will read to her and does anyone know where I can purchase one for her?

Thanks so much.

Her birthday is coming up and Iโ€™d like to know where and how I can do this for her soon.

Thanks in advance,

Sugar
