Amazon Modiftes Kindle 2's Text-to-Speech

Amazon has decided to modify the text-to-speech feature of its Kindle 2 ebook reader, after complaints from publishers who claim that the feature cuts into their market for professionally-read audio books.

Amazon will allow publishers the right to choose whether to disable the text-to-speech feature on “a title by title basis.”

Read The New York Times report of this decision.
