I believe DeDRMing also clears the meta field that indicates TTS permissions for the book.

I wish I knew that before
Is there any other advantage of DRM removal?

It's great for removing restrictions.

TTS, conversion, moving between devices, all these are blocked by restrictions enforced through DRM.

You could bzdiff the two jar files and probably post the resulting bzpatch file.

That would probably qualify on three grounds:
*) A fair use quote
*) An automated "HowTo Edit It Yourself"
*) The **difference** is your creation, I.E: your property.

Talking Alter TTS Speed

Just followed the guide to successfully change the TTS voice, worked great thanks!

But I need to speed read some books for work...do any of you know how to hack the TTS speed settings in the Kindle Fire UK?

I use Ghostreader on my iMac at home at a speed of 700 - at the Kindle Fire's max speed of 4x it sounds more like 350-400 on Ghostreader - but Kindle's TTS is portable so I could speed read all the way to work rather than it taking up my own time at home if I can get the speed increased...

Would be good too for those who read fiction and want to micro adjust speeds in the slower range up or down...

Hopefully one of you clever coders can figure this out, I can even make a small donation to make it work your while!

Thanks - Paul

Wrong forum.
We don't do color Kindles here, only grayscale.

thank you for the great job
I have tried for a couple of hours but I can't have it working, so I am here to ask you some help
I have a kindle 3 Wifi with FW 3.4.1
I have jailbroken it with version 0.13.N (the last updated available, as far as I've found)

Everything was OK

Then I have followed instructions to ad an Italian voice to my kindle
The problem is I can't have the update_usertts_3r2 or even update_usertts_3r3 work on my kindle

I mean the correct bin file (update_usertts_3r2_k3w_install.bin) was put on home directory of my kindle
I have ejected and unplugged device
I have tried to update through [HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Update Your Kindle procedure BUT the menu item is not available (it's light grey and not selectable)
Whitelist is ok: update_usertts is in and anyway I also tried to put the whitelist provided on voicepack repository

Same with version update_usertts_3r3_k3w_install.bin
If I restart kindle with update present i root directory, I get an error 3 and I need to restart with key "R", kindle restart but obviously no update was installed (bin file is deleted from root dir)

Is there any incompatibility with my version of kindle and or fw (3.4.1)?
Or I am missing some important step

Thank you for your help

Im having the same problem I have a k3g with 3.4.2 and the Update your kindle is greyed out. I tryed wit KUAL MR Package Installer and it does not throw any error, but the usertts does not work.

Should I try to use kindle tools? I've never used it.

I tried using kindle tools, using the following comands:

Code:
kindletool convert -k update_usertts_3r3_k3g_install.bin
Code:
kindletool create ota -d k3g update_usertts_3r3_k3g_install_converted.tar.gz update_usertts_3r3_k3g_install.bin
The output was:

Code:
Building OTA V1 (FC02) update package 'update_usertts_3r3_k3g_install.bin' directly from 'update_usertts_3r3_k3g_install_converted.tar.gz' for 1 device (Kindle 3 Wifi+3G), Min. OTA: 0, Target OTA: MAX, Optional: 0.
I used the the resulting bin file. The installation went fine, but when I used the TTS, the wait circle on top left kept circling for ever and I had to hard reset the Kindle.

I ran out of ideas....

OK, I solved my problem puting the usertts.ini file on launcpad directory. It said thta was only for multiple data directories, but I did it anyway and worked like a charm.

if not, "pt_br" would already solve.

Sure, I will send you a link once you enable PM (Personal Messaging).

1- go to User CP (left on the blue bar at the top)
2- under Setting & Options select Edit Options
3- under Messaging and Notifications check the Enable Private Messaging box.
