I think so. But I think that in the near future all of the remaining kindles will see updates to add kf8 support.

Well, we had 2 different support reps confirm that a 3.4 update existed at one point.

Voice whispersync is by amazon's own site a Fire exclusive feature. And why keyboard but not the touch? It doesn't add up. You were just told wrong. It happens.

Doubtful!

When the X-Ray was first announced (last year, when the KindleTouch came out) they claimed that it wouldn't run on the older K3 as it had insufficient horsepower. (The K3 has a 533MHz ARM11-based CPU, whereas the KTouch has an 800MHz Cortex A8.)

Evidently I am not correct about this matter, would someone please set me right - I thought that amazon was no longer developing the firmware for the kindle three. I thought that they were only working on the firmware for kindle 4s and 5s.

I am using Whispersync for Voice right now on my Kindle Keyboard without any issues (firmware 3.3). Immersion reading, where the audiobook will be read to you while you watch/read the ebook is a Kindle Fire only feature.

I've seen it. It's sold exclusively in my area. We don't pronounce the "d" here.

You may not want to avoid pointing out simple spelling errors unless you're willing to have your own posts scrutinized.

I think you mean "want to avoid", rather than "not want to avoid", don't you?

Yes, I do! I re-wrote the sentence and did not make the correct edits.

3.4 is here.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200529700

Version 3.4 is a brand new, free software update for Kindle Keyboard that includes:

Improved Font
: We've improved the reading font to have more contrast and be more crisp.
Parental Controls: With the latest software update for Kindle Keyboard, parents can restrict access to the Experimental Web Browser, the Kindle Store, and Archived Items. While the Kindle Store and Archived Items are locked with Parental Controls, you can continue to buy books from a computer and send them to the Kindle wirelessly for a child to read.
Kindle Format 8: KF8 makes books look even better with support for author specified fonts and more book styling options.
Comic Books: Kindle Keyboard now supports comic books with Kindle Panel View. Supported titles can be purchased from the Kindle Store. Books open in Kindle Panel View by default (a view that allows you to read a comic book panel by panel).
Children's Picture Books: Kindle Keyboard supports children's picture books with Kindle Text Pop-Up. Supported titles can be purchased from the Kindle Store.
Whispersync for Voice: Now you can switch back and forth between reading and listening without losing your place. Whispersync for Voice will synchronize what you read on any Kindle platform device with Audible playback on Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Fire, or on Audible apps for iPhone and Android.

Now, here's my question: Could this mess up my installed font hack? And will it install on my jailbroken Kindle?

Thanks, montalex! These are major enhancements!

I plan to wait to install this update until it can be confirmed that text-to-speech still works after upgrade, so if anyone could report that, I would be most appreciative. I don't see any reason it would be removed, but I'd like to know for sure since I do use TTS.
