    Default Kindle eBook: Text to speech. A brother needs education..

    I'm about to purchase one of these Kindle reading devices. Obviously I can order digital books from the net.

    Now, my question is, does it have a reader that reads the texts for you? Text to speech?

    And if it does, how good is the voice? Is it a computerized voice that sounds like a freaking robot? lol

    It does have the text-to-speech feature. The voice is not as computerized like i thought it would be so you're in luck there. You could also select between male and female narrator or slow down/speed up the voice. What i realized is that not all contents you buy from the Kindle store enables you use the txt2spch feature so you may find the feature disabled due to licensing agreements between publishers of ebooks and vendors.

    FYI, the Amazon Kindle doesn't let you play audio books like the SONY Reader Touch edition does.

    Hmmm, thanks Pope. When you are ordering digital books from amazon, how do you search? Do you type the title of the book and look if they have the digital version?

    Hey bro, i own a Kindle. I haven't used the text to speech feature yet but it has it. You can search for books directly on the device in the Kindle store. My version has both wifi and 3g so it is connected at all times.

    Purchasing a books takes less than 60 secs for the book to be downloaded to your device. It is a really cool gadget. I bought it for the purpose of reading but now i just show it off on the bus to look cool.

    It is working!
