I spend two hours a day commuting to and from my day job, and audiobooks allow me to turn that otherwise wasted transit time into productive reading time. Unfortunately, not every book has an audio edition. Audiobooks can also be fairly expensive compared to their ebook counterparts. You see, iPhones come with an accessibility feature for the visually impaired. Warning: Once VoiceOver is turned on, things get a little wonky. Your traditional touch commands change, and it takes a little while to get used to the new commands.
Post a Comment. Friday, August 17, Listen to your eBook and take a rest! When I am obsessed with an eBook and continue reading on my Kindle Fire for a heap of hours, I wonder whether there is a text-to-speech function available that allows me to listen to the book without opening my eyes I don't have an iPad which supports TTS itself. In fact, I hope this function is supported on my reading app rather than those on-line services so that my reading won't be too complicated. Do you remember the blind young man in Seven Pounds? Will Smith found out he was blind through the synthetic voice on the telephone.
Services like Audible offer audiobooks, but books that never made the leap to audio aren't part of the audiobook retailer catalogs. Convert a text or ebook file on your PC into an MP3-based audiobook by using a specialized conversion program. Although these programs rely on synthesized voices of varying quality, they're a great way to convert your local ebooks or even plain-text files into a format you can listen to while you're commuting or running errands.

My wife used to love reading but since her stroke has aphasia, no speech, limited vision and limited dexterity in her left hand only. She can select TV channels on a remote but she cannot read a short news story let alone a novel, so she listens to the radio and watches a lot of TV. A shop assistant suggested a tablet with a text-to-speech app. It needs a really simple interface or my wife will not be able to use it without assistance. This is far too fiddly for my wife to use. Also, the choice of books is limited. There are lots of answers to this question, but they may not work for your wife.
