5 Tips on Getting Started with Audiobooks
My wife used to love reading but since her stroke has aphasia, no speech, limited vision and limited dexterity in her left hand only. She can select TV channels on a remote but she cannot read a short news story let alone a novel, so she listens to the radio and watches a lot of TV. A shop assistant suggested a tablet with a text-to-speech app. It needs a really simple interface or my wife will not be able to use it without assistance. This is far too fiddly for my wife to use. Also, the choice of books is limited. There are lots of answers to this question, but they may not work for your wife.
