Hey guys, I am simply trying to help out a guy who called me up seeking help for his parents. They are down there in age and he wants to get some sort of device which can read back books to them and also from which they can listen to music. Since vision will be important we are thinking maybe the largest tablet would work fine? I am thinking he can get ebooks which can be played back but what about the ebook reading aloud situation, what's the best thing for them please?

I just called Amazon, they said the Kindle Fire HDX will do everything this guy needs, will read back audio books and he can copy music from his pc unto the fire for playback, this unit also has a "may day" button which his parents can press for a live agent who will come in the screen to walk them through any functions, cool huh? So problem solved.

You can also pair it with Audible and have actual audio books.  I just finished You Might Be a Zombie and Other Bad News: Shocking but Utterly True Facts and am now listening to All Quiet on the Western Front.
