Hi,

Continuous reading is a 2 finger downward swipe.

Regards,
Barry.

the only way to get the battery status is to wait until it is low enough
for the low battery warning to show itself.  there is a visual indicator
at the top right of the reading screen, but this is not rendered by the
TTS. As the TTS's functionality is relatively limited, there aren't that
many commands you need to know. Start and stop reading with the
spacebar.  Turn TTS on and off via the page preferences button (right of
spacebar).  while speech is running, use this same button to select
either male or female voice and speed from three options.  think that's
it.

Think continuous reading on the iPhone is 3 fingered downward swipe.

Firstly, in relation to reading within the iBooks app on an Apple
device,
could someone please tell me the gesture for continuous read?  Is there
a
way of listening to a book without having to turn the page?

Secondly, regarding the Kindle Keyboard, how do you ascertain the
battery
status please?  And is there a list of commands using text-to-speech?

Many thanks.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns
