You don’t even need to lift a finger when you’re done playing Jeopardy! on Amazon Echo and want to relax with a book. Simply say “Alexa, read [Kindle book title],” and the voice assistant will start narrating almost anything you purchased from the Kindle Store, borrowed from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library/Kindle Unlimited or got access to through Family Library. Based on the commands Amazon listed, you can tell Alexa to pause, resume from where you stopped and skip chapters.
. . . .
That said, you obviously can’t expect the narration’s quality to be on par with a professional voice actor’s reading for Audible. Want a taste of what it will sound like? Ask Alexa to read a Wikipedia or a news article for you: it uses the same text-to-speech technology for all these tasks.
