Kindle app on eclipse 7 tablet

My kindle is slowly dying. I have the Verizon eclipse 7 tablet. I downloaded the kindle App. All if my books transferred but I see no place for text to speech as I enjoy listening to my books in the evening. Does anyone know if it is even available on the eclipse?

Nann1961,


Thanks for reaching out to us about your tablet. I know how convenient it is to be able to listen to a book. I use Audible all the time to listen to books, but your way sounds great, too. This device does have native text to speech available, but it is limited to reading aloud text messages. You'll see the steps below to access that feature in the menu. Were you able to try SuzyQ's method?


-Text-to-speech output


Text-to-speech provides readout of text. For example, you
can have the contents of messages read out to you.


1. From the Home screen, tap Apps > Settings >
Language & input.
2. Tap Text-to-speech output.
3. Tap Google Text-to-speech Engine to enable the
Google engine.

The option pops up on my Ellipsis 8 - although I don't use it.  When you tap the menu button (three bars, top left on the homepage of Kindle app) do you get a menu item for audio upgrades?  See screenshot of what I get on my Kindle menu...
