We are excited to announce Whispersync for Voice and Immersion Reading, two new Kindle and Audible innovations launched in September that enhance the utility and overall experience of reading. Whispersync for Voice offers a continuous reading experience by allowing Kindle owners to switch seamlessly between reading a Kindle book and listening to the companion Audible audiobook without losing their place. If you’re absorbed in a Kindle book before falling asleep at night, you can get in the car and drive to work the next morning and listen to the same book, picking up exactly where you left off in the text.
With Immersion Reading, owners of new Kindle Fires can synchronize Kindle text with Audible’s professionally narrated audiobooks to create a more immersive and engaging experience of stories, as well as deepen learning and comprehension. As you read, text is highlighted on the screen as it is professionally narrated, and you can also speed up or slow down the narration without impacting the quality of the listening experience, or revisit earlier passages with the narration picking up seamlessly at the same point.
For a limited time customers can try both Whispersync for Voice and Immersion Reading for free with 10 Kindle and Audible titles, including Dracula and A Tale of Two Cities. To use Whispersync for Voice to switch between text and audio using Kindles and your smartphone, download the Audible mobile app for iOS phones and Android phones at www.audible.com/wireless.
