Can my kindle hdx read my purchased books aloud to me.
is there some sort of application that can read my books to me?
In two ways, the Kindle HDX can ready many Amazon-purchased ebooks to you.1. MANY (but not all) Kindle ebooks from Amazon allow Text-to-Speech (i.e. a computer voice reading the ebook to you). The Kindle book’s sale page Product Details (below the Description) will state if Text-to-Speech is Enabled. For example, this Kindle book says it is enabled (it is the publisher’s choice)http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008PEF…if you have a Text-to-Speech enabled ebook from Amazon, here is how to do the Text-to-Speech on Kindle Fire HDXhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBPf1giI…2. Some Kindle ebook sale pages, under the price and length say “Whispersync for Voice” – like this onehttp://www.amazon.com/A-Conflict-Interes…This mean if you also BUY the Audible ebook at Amazon (generally at a much-reduced price if you have already bought the ebook). THEN you have both the ebook and the actor-read audiobook and the kind can play the audiobook while you read the ebook. Or you can just listen to the digital audiobook. You may need to add the Audible app to your Kindle HDX (not sure). I think your Amazon login works as your Audible login. And note – you DO NOT need an Audible subscription so just avoid ever clicking yes to that.As with the Kindle ebooks, you can also install the Audible app on other devices to listen to your purchased Audible audiobooks..NOTE – if you want something that will read aloud ebooks that you did not get at Amazon, then you are on your own. I don’t think the Kindle HDX will do text-to-speech on non-Amazon ebooks at all. I believe you would have to find a different ebook reader app with text-to-speech capability.
What is the best audiobook player for the elderly.
My grandmother loves her audio books, but she has recently run into a problem.My cousin convinced her to go out and buy and ipad and a mac to go with it. I said that’s not a good idea because she’s so use to PC, but my cousin was relentless. Our grandmother is so use to using CD’s she can’t grasp…
My dad is 80 and uses a Kindle Fire. The fact that it’s mostly integrated with Amazon really helps, since it automatically downloads everything for him. Because she’s losing her sight, the larger screen version of the Kindle (I think it’s 9″) might be a better choice.However, there may still be hope for the iPad. There are a number of Youtube tutorials that might help her learn how to use it. Also, if she’s an AARP member then they have resources that she can take advantage of. She may also be able to sign up for an adult ed class to learn to use the Mac and iPad – sometimes you can do this through a community college, school system or even a library system . Audible has an iOS app that doesn’t require iTunes – you install the app and use that to download the audiobooks. It’s pretty easy. It sounds like she just needs someone to show her how to use what she already has.

Galaxy s3 help…….
I want to know why my phone can’t read books to me like the Galaxy S3 that they show on the commercials during the olympics. It shows a runner going out for a run and the book is “The Odyssey”. I believe it is AT&T’s commercial. Well I tried using Google Books (Sorry Play Books) but it sounds like…
You need to buy and download an audiobook for it to be read properly. Then you need to download an ebook reader such as MortPlayer Audio. Make sure you put your book under audiobooks in your phone directory. Or you could just get an account with Audible, and it will be much easier. Hope this helps you out.
Can someone please explain Kindle to me.
I honestly don’t get it…Do I have to pay a monthly fee? How do I get books on my phone that aren’t samples? Are there audiobooks on it?
There are 3 Kindles of “Kindle” — Kindle Fire Tablet (color LCD tablets Fire HD, Fire HDX)- Kindle Ereader (grayscale eInk screen models Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Voyage)- Kindle app (free ereader app available for most computers and smart mobile devices)All of the above can read Kindle ebooks from Amazon. You BUY the ebooks. Some ebooks at Amazon are free and most have prices. You must have a credit or debit card in your Amazon account settings to buy any complete ebooks, even free ones. And your Kindle (whatever kind) must be registered to your account to read the ebooks that account buys.There is no monthly fee unless you want there to be one. There is an optional “Kindle Unlimited” subscription (which I have) and that costs about $9.99/month (depending on country) and allows to to borrow up to 10 ebooks at a time from 700,000 of Amazon’s ebooks (this is not all ebooks, and is mainly lower-price ebooks and not bestsellers, not e-textbooks). A much smaller number of Audible audiobooks are also borrowable.Re audiobooks – you CANNOT play audiobooks on Kindle ereaders because they have no audio at all. You CAN play Audible audiobooks on Kindle Fire tablets using the Audible App. You can play Audible audibooks on most computers and smart mobile devices by using an Audible app. Audible has their own subscription of $15/moth which gets you only one free audiobook per month. You DO NOT have to sign up for that. You can just BUY the individual Audible audiobooks (which are often cheaper if you have already purchased the ebook).There is also text-to-speech – SOME ebooks at Amazon allow text-to-speech, i.e. a computer voice reading the ebook. The sales page will say if Text-to-Speech is enabled (a publisher choice). I believe you can only use text-to-speech on a Kindle Fire tablet OR on a Windows PC with the “accessibility” version of the Kindle Reader app for PC.
Does anybody know a good book app that comes with books included, yet contains newer books.
I know about mega-reader, and Eucalyptus, and some other thing called classicly or something, but they’re all filled with old books and I was wondering if there were apps like them but with more recent books.Price isn’t a problem, I’d rather pay for an app with books included than install a free app…
No general reader apps come with books, but are to access libraries.Such “free” readers are such with old books, becasue those books are out of copyright.More recent books are copyrighted, so will almost always be for pay, on a per book basis, because that is how the publishing industry decided is best for them.That said, i know Audible has plans where you subscribe (monthly), and are entitled to a given number of books each month, based on your plan. They are audiobooks though.I doubt you will find in any medium, a legitimate system were you buy an application or hardware once and are entitled to get pay content in perpetuity. At least it is rare.
How do i make my samsung galaxy tab read to me.
i wanted to know how i could make my samsung galaxy tab read to me. I downloaded the kindle app so i would have al the books off my kindle but i wanted to know how i could make it read to me like the old kindle does. Thanks.Another thing is, i was assigned to read a book for school and i hate reading so i would…
Sorry, but the Kindle Text to Speech functionality works only on Kindles. It doesn’t work on the Kindle app on other hardware platforms. You could look into buying audiobooks through Audible, which is owned by Amazon. A lot of times they sell the audio version at a discount if you own the Kindle version.As for a short war book, try Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo. I believe it’s only around 200 pages or so.
How does audible work.
I am looking into audible to listen to audio books. If I sign up for their monthly membership and get a free book is that my book for life or is it like a rental. Are any books I get through them whether free or paid mine for life? If I cancel my monthly membership how can i still listen to the books.
When you sign up with Audible, you choose a plan. Each plan involves paying a certain amount of money and getting a certain number of credits, usually 1 or 2 credits per month. You use the credits to buy audiobooks, which are generally 1 credit each. You also get a discount for those purchased without credits. You’ll need to download a special downloader from them. The files are in a proprietary format, but can be added to iTunes or WMP. You can then put them on devices like iPods as well as burn them to disc. I haven’t canceled my subscription, but from reading various forums I gather that the books are yours even if you do. And like I said, you can always download them and then burn them to CD to be 100% sure of not losing them. Their FAQ at http://audible.custhelp.com/app/answers/… says that even if you cancel, you have access to your online library, which implies that you can still re-download the content you purchased as well.I’ve been a member for almost a year and have been very happy with them. I listen to audiobooks while working out and on road trips. They can be kind of addictive. If you decide to join and like fantasy or humor, I highly recommend Agatha H and the Airship City by Phil and Kaja Foglio, which I just finished. They’re also having a sale at the moment with certain books available for 50% off the list price.
Is a subscription to audible audio book app worth it.
How much is a monthly subscription? Is it worth the money?
Prices vary depending upon the plan. Basically, you buy credits. Then you trade credits for books. The price of the credits depends upon the plan. The cheapest plan gets you one credit per month, which comes to $14.95 per month. I signed up for the plan where you pay $230 once, for 24 credits, which comes to around $9.50 per credit. Most books cost one credit. Given that they can have a “street price” of $30 or more, this usually works out pretty well. The membership also gives you access to discounts on cash purchases, which can be really great. They also often have sales where you can get two books for one credit, which costs even less.As to whether it’s worth it, that’s up to you. I listen to audiobooks while out walking and hiking, around 2 hours per day. It’s great for me. But it really depends upon how often you’d listen and how many books you can find that you like. I haven’t had any that I would consider actively bad, even after several years. Some are better than others, but I haven’t encountered any duds. If you’re looking for something to occupy you while commuting or on road trips or exercising then I recommend it.My understanding is that they have a free trial. Give that a whirl and judge for yourself. It should show you the special prices for members and you can browse their catalog and see what interests you and how much it would cost with and without membership. They do have audio samples to give you an idea of how the narrator is.
How do you get audiobooks on Windows 10.
I know I own audiobooks on my Amazon account, but whenever I go to “Kindle” on a computer with Windows 10, it only shows regular printed books. Can you even get audio books on a laptop?
You can buy the Audible audiobooks at Amazon and they are often cheaper if you bought the ebook there. I bought one yesterday. Don’t pick the Listen for Free option because that will sign you up to a $15/month Audible subscription that only gives you one audiobook per month.You can also buy Audible audiobooks at Audible.com (with your Amazon login).To listen to your already-owned Audible audiobooks on Windows 10, you can log into http://www.Audible.com then pick Library in the top area of the window. Pick the Audiobook you own that you wish to listen to.OR install the Audible app for Windows 10 and then you should be able to download the Audiobook and listen to it offline.Here are the Audible apps – scroll way down for the Windows 10 one.http://www.audible.com/mt/Apps?ie=UTF8&p…
