iOS OR Android app: Adobe DRM & TTS support for library books

Hi all,
I've been searching up and down the net and MR and could not find a resource that lists reader software which supports TTS AND Adobe DRM on either iOS or Android in one place.
Nowadays, a lot of people use both OSes, like myself.

Since it looks like publishers/Overdrive (not sure whom to blame) are selling more ePub than Kindle format to some of my libraries lately, I would like to invest in an app that supports both, so at least I can listen to my library books while driving/running.

[I gave up on trying to find a good ePub eink alternative to my Kindle PW for now, since I hate having to connect anything to my computer for file transfer, and the Sony T2 is non-HD, non-lit at above $100.]

Would love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Mantano (Android) supports both, but if I had to guess I bet most publishers have TTS disabled in the DRM settings for their books.

I does not have a TTS option, though.

I wonder if it differs from ePub to Kindle,then, meaning: is TTS enabled/disabled regardless of the format/seller? There are a lot of Kindle books that have TTS enabled, but I have no idea about ePub.

I'd think if it's enabled on Kindle it would be for ePub as well. Maybe there are more books with TTS enabled then there used to be? I haven't really checked in quite a while as I'm spoiled by audiobooks and can't stand listening to TTS. For a while most publishers (the big ones at least) were blocking it.

Brian hope you can help! I also posted this question in the android forum:

How to read Overdrive ePubs in Mantano Reader?!
When trying to download a book, it opens in the Overdrive app. I tried looking for the file with ES Explorer, but can't figure out where the eBook file is being stored!

I don't know, I don't have the OverDrive app installed. I just download the ACSM file from my libraries OD site by selecting ePub as my format, and then use Mantano's explorer to open that from my Nexus 7's download folder and it downloads the book to my device and into Mantano.

The other way I've done it is to copy the book from my PC's ADE folder via USB and then open the book in Mantano.

Hmm, I don't see the file in the download folder, but that's probably because Overdrive puts it somewhere else. Sigh. Nothing is ever easy....

IIRC stuff downloaded by that app goes into a folder called OverDrive (which has some other folders inside of it), but I'm not sure if a book downloaded into their app is a regular ePub or not.

The Overdrive folder has four sub-folders, but they are almost empty, with one containing two banner images, and one containing two Chronicles of Perth files, though I don't remember ever having borrowed it.
