    Digital Editions has no read aloud support. Really?

      Hello

       

      I am a librarian at a fairly large university.

       

      Many of the ebooks we purchase require the use of Adobe Digital Editions. Is it true that there is no facility to have these books read aloud? To be frank, I'm quite stunned if this is true.

       

      I have found a few questions related to this in the forums but nothing particularly recent. I was wondering when this accessibility issue will be addressed, if not already?

       

      I have looked at the Adobe accessibility page and discovered that DE doesn't meet many of the Voluntary Accessibility Template criteria, particularly the one related to users with blindness or visual impairment (Section 1194.31 Functional Performance Criteria — Detail).

      Many thanks for any information or clarification.
