Operating system accessibility
Reading system activation
Navigate to chapters through the Table of Contents
In the menu, experimental features is selected. Then there is an additional menu item next to the bookmark icon in the top right of the page, “Start Reading”. The reading starts at the top of the currently displayed text (great!).
Stop and resume reading
There is no pause feature. The read aloud can be cancelled, but starting it again begins at the top of the page, not from the last read item.
The Read Aloud feature should continue until interrupted by the user
The read aloud continues past the bottom of the text initially displayed. The page scrolls to keep the text being read in view. The read aloud stops at the end of the current chapter (spine item).
All text should be read in the proper order
The paragraphs about Mother’s Day were read in the correct order.

There does not appear to be a way to change reading speed.
Text to Speech handles punctuations and document structure appropriately
The text is read as expected.
Text is emphasised as it is spoken by read aloud
