Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team discuss Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and an Instagram redesign, Meta’s Quest2 going up in price, streaming rising to an all time high, and more.
Joe in Gladewater, Texas listens on KTBB and asked: “Hey Dave and Chris. Is there a way that I can make my iPad read within the Kindle app or within Libby, which is also a book reader? I would like to be able to let that play while I fall asleep at night. If you could help me out, that would be wonderful. I sure appreciate y’alls hard work.”
Joe, theres a screen reader built into the physical Kindle device, but theres no built-in screen reader in either the Kindle app, or in Libby.
You can get the iPads own screen reader to read the screen if you activate it in settings, but it will probably be a clunky experience since its meant to just read whats on the screen, not to go to the next page or the next chapter of a book for you.
The iPads screen reader also wont have a timer to stop it after a set number of minutes.
The other problem youll face is that the screen reader is an accessibility tool, so the dictation will be pretty robotic and it wont feel like an audiobook at all.
Libby does allow you to check out audio books from your local library though, so that may be a better way to go if youd like to have a book read aloud to you as you fall asleep.
