Success! If I plug a USB sound card into my 7th Gen #Kindle, it activates Voice View and will read books to me with a robot voice. 🙂

Congratulations to our newly elected board members Tobias Knerr and Joost Schouppe! Also big thanks to Peter Barth and Martijn van Exel who are both stepping down after serving 3 years on the board.
