If you are a Kindle owner or a kindle reader in general you will be happy to know about the new feature Amazon has added to their never ending list of options for Kindle user. If you like me buy your books from Amazon then you will be happy to hear about this. Kindle Matchmaker – now you can switch seamlessly between reading and listening with Whispesync for Voice.
There are just a few steps to follow when using this feature – this doesn’t necessarily apply to new books, it applies to every book you have purchased via amazon for your kindle.
Just follow these 3 steps.
Step 1 – you don’t have to buy a new kindle book (unless that’s the case) – you can search for the audio book for books you have in your device. You can search for books you have & their audio companion here.
Step 2 – From the list of kindle books you get, select the book you want to add the audio companion, if you haven’t yet read the book and it is on sale, I suggest you grab it. Audio books are typically more expensive than Kindle books, and the benefit is that you will be able to switch between formats once you start reading. Search your books here.
Step 3 – Once you have chosen the book you want, then go ahead and give it a test drive. The beauty of this new technology is that you can read & listen simultaneously, not to mention it allows real-time highlighting. According to Amazon this new technology is called Immersion Reading. Immersion Reading, Immerse the reader in a story by narrating and highlighting the text as you read. It sparks an extra connection that boosts engagement, comprehension, and retention, taking you deeper into the book. I totally love the sound of that, especially when you are really complex stories in which you have more than one POV.
You can switch from reading to listening within the Fire Tablet or Kindle app. Or, you can switch between reading on one device and listening on another. For example, you can read on your tablet and then listen on your smartphone, and, thanks to Whispersync for Voice, you’ll never lose your place. Available on Kindle App for Android, Fire HD 6 Tablet, Fire HD 7 Tablet, Kindle Fire HDX Tablet, and Fire HDX 8.9
