I'm glad to have text to speech, but it seems odd that the latest update would remove half the options for text to speech (which already had limited options). Why even take away the option? It is not the case that there are a ton of new feature settings vying for screen space.

It has always been only a female voice on the Fire models that offer TTS.

The voice on the Fires is improved over the e-ink Kindles, and the choice was made between the male option and the improved female version.

Why does the text to speech skip ahead? When this happens I need to go back and start the speech again. It makes me frustrated when I am reading/listening to my book.
