Sony supports voice

Hi there guys: I believe that Sony supports voice and can also read out the content – can you confirm? If it does, can it do a search for the keywords if we say the word. For e.g. if we say pizza, can it display where the word appears.

Regards
Parvez

This is incorrect; the Sony does not support text-to-speech (TTS). I know of no TTS-supporting device which actually have the type of "word recognition" system that you describe.

The only dedicated eBook readers that I'm aware of which currently have TTS are the Amazon Kindle, and the Hanlin V5 (and its various "clones").

As well as not supporting TTS, it also doesn't do voice recognition. Given that that's only working so well even on computers, I doubt you will see that anytime soon. I can see where that's usefull for blind people though.
