Finding listen and read books (Immersion reading / Whispersync for Voice / Librivox)

How do I actually find books I can listen to and read along at the same time?

I'm looking for books in Spanish in particular.

I found that The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe is a completely different version on Librivox than the one on Project Gutenberg.

I can't see a way to search for these books on Kindle or Audible: only after having found a book.

How does one search for books that have a direct match?

You won't find any on Audible.com that are both WhisperSync and Spanish (I just looked), but you can search for WhisperSync books, or for Spanish books by using Advanced Search.

For WhisperSync -- Click Advanced Search (just under the main Search box on the upper right), scroll to the bottom, and select WhisperSync for Voice. Click Submit. With no other restrictions, that returns >190,000 results!

For Spanish language -- Click Advanced Search (just under the main Search box on the upper right), scroll down to Language, click Show All, and click Submit. Just under 7,000 results.

I don't seem to have the option for advanced search in the Kindle android app. ( http://i.imgur.com/cuIRTZ8.jpg )

Which app are you referring to?

Web page, not a dedicated app. They often limit options. (And avoid mobile versions of the site, they can have the same problem.)
