I have been experimenting with ways to have my logos resources dictated to me on my Android device and have had some success with transferring content onto a word file which is then converted to be used with the Moon+ Reader app. The interesting thing to note about this app is that it uses google's built in Text-to-Speech to read books aloud; a feature that has recently become far more usable withnew high quality voices. 

Considering that the Text-to-Speech software is already in place, would it be possible for the logos app to have a feature similar to the one seen on Moon+ Reader?

Some publishers might object, but it's an excellent suggestion.

N.B. There are TTS engines on PC and Mac too, I seem to recall.

This would be great! It has definitely been recommended before. See for example:
