Amazon Alexa is a virtual assistant, which uses Text to speech Technology to read out books for the user. This service is very much similar to Amazon’s paid service named ‘AUDIBLE’. However, the voice of Alexa is quite robotic and it lacks emotions and dramatic pauses at some points. The attractive thing about Alexa is its zero cost; hence, you do not have to spend extra bucks to use this service.

Amazon Echo can be controlled either by a dedicated app or by voice commands. To activate the device, you have to say ‘Alexa, read {title of the book}’. Along with simple reading, you can tell Alexa to pause the session, resume the session from same point and skip from one chapter to another.
