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.

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

Also, what voice is used? Is there a way to hear it before purchase? Is the person likely to be satisfied with and use synthesized speech? And, as far as I know, all the books would have to be purchased. Is that reasonable?

Re: can you set up a Gmail account on the same computer this a pop3 account too?

Steve Matzura
 

I'm not even sure what you're asking. Gmail is an email provider; POP3 is an email retrieval mechanism. Gmail can use either, but it's never a good idea to use both, thus setting up two different retrieval methods for one account, because they will eventually interfere with each other and you'll wwind up with either duplicates or missing messages. Tell us what you're trying to achieve.

Re: How to talk into the internal mic on a laptop?

Gene
 

An easy way to find out how to get good results is to experiment with the Zoom test session. I seem to remember you are using Zoom. My microphone picks up speech pretty well when I am next to the laptop. I'm not sure exactly where the microphone is. I don't feel anything like holes anywhere that indicates its presence. If I want better audio, I lean over the computer. You can try different positions leaning over the computer. But are you asking because the microphone isn't working or is giving you poor or soft reproduction? Do you know how to change the volume of the microphone? There is also a microphone boost. Without knowing more, while I could write further, I don't know if it would be helpful or apply.

I don't know what is shown on screen when this happens but it has happened to me before. this material was probably taken down or maybe you have to be a paid member of Youtube to stream it. Why this happens instead of something on screen or some sort of announcement that the file has been taken down for copyright violations is something I don't know. If you have a sighted person around to see what is on screen, we may get an answer but all this material is copyrighted.

It's a wireless keyboard and you just plug the dongle in to your machine and
the keyboard connects to the dongle, thereby connecting to your computer.
