Voiceover in Kindle App

Kindle released an update to their app on both the iPhone and iPad.  This update makes the kindle App compatible with Voiceover.  What does this mean?  It means that all books that you purchase with your Kindle app can be read using Voiceover, a feature that has been long asked for!  To me what's even more amazing is that Amazon has long had the ability to read some books out loud on their Kindle Reader device, but have been hampered by publishers (see my post from 2009).  Using Voiceover, an accessibility feature, seems like a way to get around limitations imposed by publishers.

Make sure to update your app and start listening!
