My friend just bought the Kinde Fire, awesome! I myself have the 3G wi/fi but not the touch favorite thing on MY Kindle i the text to talk feature, I now listen to a lot of my books and its great while driving as you can keep your hands on the wheel etc..having said that we have looked and looked and can't find the text to talk feature on their Kindle Fire? Does it not have that feature? If it does how do you access it?

Waiting for an answer:) thanks, beautifulnorth

That feature is not available on the Fire. No word on when, if ever, it will be added. If you want your books narrated to you by a stoned robot, you'll have to stick with e-ink Kindles. ;-)

The current Fires do have text to speech. Notice this post is almost 2 years old.

Is there a talk to text app for kindle

Do you mean text to speech where the Kindle reads to you? Or do you mean speech to text where you talk and the Kindle converts what you say to text?

yeah - kinda wondering the question... which way ?

On our iPad - there is an App called Dragon Dictation -
where you talk and it types.... does a pretty good job.

We had the PC software - Dragon Naturally Speaking - years ago when our son broke his wrist.

If you mean an e-ink Kindle (not a Fire), those don't run apps and don't have any audio capability.

The Kindle 3, later renamed the Kindle Keyboard, had text-to-speech capability, and also allowed you to load MP3s onto it. They would play the MP3s in the order you loaded them, and you couldn't select individual songs to the exclusion of others.
In many ways, it was better than Prime Music, since you could listen to music while reading, even where wifi was not available.
The current momochrome Kincles have had so much functionality removed that they are hndly worth carrying around, unlike the K3.

Rosalie, could you tell us a bit more about what you want to do? Are you trying to search for something on your Fire tablet by talking to it?
