And you cannot stop nor rewind the speech while it's reading. Each chapter of the book I'm reading takes about 40 minutes to read. What if I need a break during that time? What if I want to start reading from the middle of the chapter? That's really bad.

Is there any ebook reader with speech that offers better control over the speaking. Maybe with a read by page or pause/back/forward controls?
It's really hard to say, and even harder to get an ebook reader with all the features you'd expect in one package. Have you tried out "multireader"? It claims to be a TTS ebook reader, but I haven't tried it out.
