Kindle App Update Lets You Read Your Books With Your Ears

Enjoy reading with your ears instead of your eyes? Amazon has just updated its iOS Kindle application to include text to speech features that will let you turn books into audiobooks. VoiceOver, Amazon’s new accessibility feature will be supported in 1.8 million books.

Dorthy Nicholls, Vice President, Amazon Kindle:

With this update, we’re also making customer-favorite features—such as X-Ray, End Actions, sharing, highlighting and bookmarking—more accessible. We look forward to continuing to develop and extend our accessibility features on Kindle Fire and our other Kindle apps.

There’s a bunch of other accessibility features being built into the applications, and a lot are present in this update, so it’s worth updating it. A lot of menu systems and other navigation elements are streamlined as well.
