Re: Info on a Kindle reader please

The Fire tablets do come with a screen reader called VoiceView as well as several low vision features. If someone has enough vision to open a book but just wants the book to be read aloud there is a separate text to speech function just for reading books which is separate from the screen reader.

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.

Hi all

I’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 can’t have it done until this Coved clears up a bit.

She is in a home so it makes it difficult and she can’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 I’d like to know where and how I can do this for her soon.

Thanks in advance,

Sugar
