When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Kindle Books - can we have it in the UK too?
« on: January 11, 2017, 04:59:37 pm »
Hi All

I've got a few books I'd like to read in Kindle (through echo and dot).
Audible is not an option because they're predominantly Textbooks and I think those will be narrated way after I retire.

The feature appears to be available in the US-Alexa, my Kindle fire and original Kindle. Can we have it on UK-Alexa too.

For clarification, this is the TTS service that's visible when you go to the Alexa App >> Settings >> Music and Books >> [Kindle books, just below the Audible option]

Thanks

It appeared for me a couple of weeks back - including new books - but has disappeared again. Think amazon must be testing the service...

Oh yes, it's gone again.
