After a long period of time (5 years actually!), Amazon’s latest Kindle edition finally offers the ability for text-to-speech with the use of an audio adaptor.
Although the adaptor can be purchased as part of a bundle for the visually impaired or on its own. Officially, it is only compatible with the latest Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite 2.0, but some reports say that the adaptor also works on Kindle Oasis and Voyage.
In 2013, Amazon made their iPad Kindle app much more accessible for the visually impaired, but it’s been a long time coming for a Kindle that has text-to-speech capabilities.
