note Message Multi-line text field Is editing Required Hi
I’ve downloaded a few e-books from Amazon onto my iPad kindle app and I’m really not enjoying listening to voice-over reading the pages I’m wondering if there is another way of listening to an e-book e.g Voice Dream Reader etc. Looking Forward to hearing your suggestions and advice on how to do so

Unfortunately, no, you can’t read Kindle books in Voice Dream Reader. Those books have DRM (digital rights management) which prevents them from being copied, so you can’t get them out of the Kindle app.

It is possible to do this. However, you have to download a few programs to your computer first. One being the Kindle app, on computer, And a book converter like codec. You also have to have the right program to strip the DRM while you convert the book into a different format.

But she does have books in a pub and word document file formats. And, if you have an Amazon echo, you could read your Kindle books with her. Also, someone please correct me if I am wrong. But I think you can use her on your iPad too. You would just have to have the Alexa app.
I wouldn’t try and strip copy protection from books.
Also, you could download books from book share in MP3 format. And then the books would be read by Brookeshire‘s voice and Jen named Kendra.

But I download books from book share in Voice Dream all the time. I just got the app and month or two ago. And I really love it.
I hope these suggestions help.
