android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech not working on kindle fire?

My app use android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech and it works great in Google Play app. However the speak function did not make any sound in kindle fire. When I debug the code, there is no error too. Just no sound. Is it not supported in kindle fire? (BTW, my app read out Chinese instead of English)

Find out the TTS in kindle fire does not support Chinese. If I change to speak English, it works. So is there anyway to support Chinese TTS?

We currently do not have TTS support for Chinese. For the list of supported languages, see below link: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/fire/specifications.html#Technologies
