Even if the program won't read it aloud, nothing is stopping the person who bought it from doing so. I fail to see how disabling that protects much of anything.
this is a side effect of what they don't allow, not the main intent. The read aloud software has to have access to the data. Providing this permission also allows a DRM hole which is what they are really trying to block.
