Do l need to download any text to speech software before l can use it on my kindle, and if yes or no can someone please advise me on how to go about this?

No you don't need to you just need to make sure the book you want to 'read' has text to speech enabled. It says in the product details for each book whether it is or not.

And anything DRM free i.e. not copyright will work too.

It does depend though on the model of Kindle you have. If it is the Kindle WiFi (non keyboard or non touch) it will not have the text to speech feature.

Ooh yes - I had forgotten that - thank you for mentioning it. I just hope the OP doesn't have the £89 Kindle and isn't trying to find out where text to speech is :-)
