Kindle as in the reading app? Not that I know of...have you looked into downloading the audiobooks app? I'm fairly certain that one supports T2S for quite a few of the books

I am fairly sure that it depends on the book offered by Amazon. Most books are for reading but some are supported by text to speech. They are marked as such when you go to the Amazon site.

Some books have text to speech on the Kindle reading device, but the Kindle Andoid app does not have this yet, although it is still a very good app.

There is no such feature on the Kindle application, however they may add it in the future.

This. The actual Kindle does. The Kindle app does not.

Moon+ Reader (the paid version) offers this and it's great. That is the best ebook reader on the market in my opinion, and I've tried them all.

I have been unable to use the kindle books I have bought since kindle format is not readable by the android moon+ reader. Please advise how you did it.

Have paid version of moon+ but have not been able to convert to readable format. I would like to use the TTS.

Thanks
Jerry

If your Kindle books DRM-free you could use Calibre to convert in .ePub format.

Moon+ Reader reads .ePub and can do this with TTS.

I found some more information to converting ...

Thanks Harry,

Your link to mobileread.com may help.

It mentions a command line way to do it which I have not tried.

My kindle files are .prc which is DRM protected.
