Listening & Reading
« on: April 07, 2016, 05:38:31 PM »
I don't know what it's called when I listen to the Audible Book while reading the Kindle book and that grey box scans the words. I like listening and reading but I need to have the audible go at 2.5 to 3 and at that rate the grey boxes don't track the words in the same way my brain is processing.  Is there a way to turn off the grey boxes?

Amazon calls it 'Immersion reading', and highlighting is part of that feature. There is no option to turn off the word highlighting. Sometimes I find the highlighting doesn't kick in, but that is a bug.
