Does the basic Kindle support audio books?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 28, 2014, 3:44:06 PM PDT
Since it doesn't have any audio capabilities, the answer would be no.

Here is the product info - Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 5th)

So far only the tablets have audio capabilities. None of the ereaders do (except the large dx, from what I remember, could be wrong on that one though)

The previous Kindle touch(6" E Ink Display) had audio. PLEASE bring it back. Loved it. Lost it. Want a new one!

Refurbished Touches were available recently from Amazon. I purchased one.

Edit - Here's the link - Certified Refurbished Kindle Touch, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display - includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers

ALL the Kindles used to have speakers...then Amazon introduced the Basic and the Paperwhite without any sound capability.
The DX is not new manufacture. The ones being sold are warehouse clearance. They have speakers and do TTS.
