In the US, Amazon now sells an Adapter that complements the Kindle Paperwhite in a text-to-speech – thought about for the Blind. And also for the new Oasis suggests that a text-to-speech function will be upgraded.
Amazon has taken in the USA, a Kindle Paperwhite to offer, and is supplied with an Audio Adapter, a text-to-speech voice output. Thus, a function comes back to the E-readers of the online retailer that had it recently, the Kindle Keyboard and wanted since then, again and again by customers. In contrast to the then, the now added function of voice view but also works in the menus and should make the Reader for the Blind and visually impaired accessible.

The Adapter, there are so far only in the US Store of Amazon in a Bundle with a Kindle Paperwhite for $ 140. The surcharge of US $ 20 compared to the Kindle Paperwhite is made by a 20 Dollar voucher for Amazon right back betting, so that the audience does not have to pay extra. You can then connect headphones via the Adapter to the USB port of the Kindles and the text-to-speech voice, listen to music or audio books will not play. Overall, the batteries should hold for six hours when read aloud.
While it is still unclear whether the Adapter should also come to Germany, we already see that not only is the Kindle Paperwhite are to be added to the text-to-speech function. So there is on the new Kindle Oasis a folder called “Voice” in the apparently already the necessary files for a text-to-speech function. Still, they can not be used. The Adapter should work here also soon. The Reading Apps on the Kindle Fire Tablets, the 5. Generation support, however, the text-to-speech function, explained Amazon. (mho)
