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?
FbreaderJ doesn't (yet) support TTS. I asked on the mailing list a while back and they're supposed to have someone interested in tying it into the existing TTS library.
You might look into joining the list and asking about it as well. I would expect the more interest shown, the quicker they'll be to move on it.
