I would like a feature where I could plug  in an ear plug into the Nook and have it read to me.  It would be especially helpful to be able to plug the Nook into a jack in the car and allow the reader to use the car radio/stereo to read the book much like an apple Ipod  performs its music functions.


I fyou were driving on a road trip, it would be nice if the book would read the words in the story to you.Listening to books while you drive is a very enjoyable experience and you should support the process

Hi jll58, Would this be for every title? We currently offer many titles in audiobook format for this reason. - Alex

This is not the same as an audiobook, it's a "read to me" feature, where the device reads the ebook to the listener.

It's also already on the Nook HD and Nook HD+, though I don't think it's a great way to read a book.  I think the voice has improved since it was originally implemented, and if I recall correctly you can download a voice pack of some sort through the google playstore.


I do not see them adding this feature to the Nook Color, Tablet, First Edition, and I doubt it'd be added to the eink line since an audio out port would need to be added back to the device.
