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
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

[TechTalk] Info on a Kindle reader please
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
I am needing help in
locating a Kindle reader that will read to her
and does anyone know where I can purchase one
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,

love, patience, tolerance, and care."
