One of the greatest selling points about NookStudy is the Text-to-Speech enabled for books. For people who are aging and eye sight that is not as clear as it use to be this is a great feature and a wonderful help to aging eyes. Text to Speech is one of the main reason I have an Ipad because it will read to me all PDFs files and books and magazines. If I were you I would have all books and mags and pdfs text to speech as a free feature and show it everywhere there is a NOOK study. Please give us TEXT- to- Speech on all books, Mags, and PDFs like ipad. Thank you, Estoria
