DuoBook works wonderfully - you can switch back and forth between reading & listening, which makes it perfect for someone who has a hard time dedicating time to just listening to a book 😅

Tattle

Listen to your news stories, narrated by humans

Kate- Community @Tierion
Instead of reading the news, enjoy it being read to you! Plus, it's read to you in a friendly human voice (instead of a robot voice, because as much as I like Alexa and Siri, they don't have the same finesse).
