Works fairly well and easily. Although, on several occasions if I leave it running in the background (after stopping the program) or when I close the Kindle, it will start reading out loud. It's freaked me out more than once. I've also had issues where I'll close it out because it won't start up and attempt to reopen it only to have it start reading but there's no way to turn it off. Yet those issues are too far and few between to take away another star. And as a writer who likes to do her work on the Kindle and then have it read back to her, this is fantastic! It's even turned some of my Kindle books into audible books.
At voice reader is the soul text to speech reader for the Kindle Fire HDX. The reader window and controls are in front large enough for people with vision impairments . This application is the best I have ever used with this intuitive controls of speech pitch rate and type. I use this app constantly.
The serious drawbacks are in the window in which you add files to listen to later. The file add page is totally inaccessible . This part of the program abandons the large fonts and icons and intuitive controls of the reader window. It looks like the add to reader section of the program was written for people who have no vision impairment. The filenames are in a tiny font that is difficult to read . The interactive interface to the file is very confusing. I was confused in how to delete a file or select a file to listen to. This section of the program appears to be unfinished . It needs large print and clearly written directions .
I am visually impaired, and it is super helpful to be able to have this tool available for my use.
