Thanks. she does not need enternal voices, as she is not blind, just her vision is very cloudy at the moment, so she needs something to read to her.
This is awesome info.

Re: [TechTalk] Info on a Kindle reader please
Kindles can definitely read out loud. The voices are from Ivona and are fairly human sounding and easy to understand. If she needs to use the built-in screen reader to browse for and read books there may be a bit of a learning curve if she isn't used to touch screen based screen readers.

I just want something to read to her, doesn’t matter how it sounds, imean I’ve been told there are some smooth voices on there instad of that mechanical one but I can ask that as well
Just thought someone had one who can tell me if ti actual reads out loud.
Thanks so much for th info. It’s appreciated
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.

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,
