It depends on which Kindle you have. On older models like the Kindle Keyboard or Kindle Touch, and on Fires other than the first one, yes, you can. On the e-ink models now sold new, the basic and the PaperWhite, you can't because they have no audio capability.

On the Fires, there is Text to Speech (TTS) capability, but each publisher decides if an e-book title is TTS-enabled or not.

If it is, you can turn on the computery voice, and follow the text as it goes, yes.
