All of the currently sold Fires have text-to-speech built in. The only one that doesn't have it is the 1st Gen Fire and you can't add it to read Kindle books.

no need for that - it's built into the Fire OS itself

That says it works with websites, text files, PDFs and ePub books (which aren't supported on a Kindle). It does not work with Kindle books as far as I can tell from reading the description.

You can't add an app to use tex-to-speech on Kindle books on a 1st Gen Fire.
