Earlier editions of kindle books had audible pronunciation icon and printed pronunciation in a font big enough to read. Now there is no audible pronunciation and printed pronunciation is impossible to read. Additionally, the current dictionary is inferior to the prior dictionary. What happened?

I don't know what dictionaries the iDevice apps use. I would assume it's the same ones that the Kindles and Kindle for Android app have always used - The Oxford Dictionary of English and the New Oxford American Dictionary.
