Indeed, when you have an audio adapter plugged in, 'VoiceView Settings' is one of the options in the 'quick' settings (along with Airplane mode, Sync My Kindle, and LIGHT adjustment slider).

In VoiceView settings you can toggle VoiceView On and Off, engage a Tutorial, adjust Reading Speed (from .66x to 4x with 8 intermediate speeds), and Volume (from 1 to 8, default is 4).

It is significantly simpler than VoiceView on the Fire, which after all is a more complicated device. Not as many fancy gestures to learn. The Tutorial takes you through everything in less than five minutes.

Keyboard entry is not bad either, just drag your finger around until you hear the letter you want, then lift your finger to enter that letter.

Some features are unavailable with VoiceView enabled, such as highlighting, notes, sharing, wikipedia, translate, Kindle Store, Goodreads.

But it is an impressive first release of the feature.
