Some do, some don't.

For instance, even when marked as being accessible kindle books
require that jaws or some other recognized screen reader be running in
order for the accessible kindle app to operate in accessible mode
(although since one of the recognized readers is free this isn't much
of a limitation) but even then the app does not actually use the
recognized screen reader for voice output (instead the app has a
couple voices embedded and uses those).

With PDF again it is up to the publisher but at least there it is the
user's screen reader that will be used to read the content.

I can't speak for other e-book formats.

What about bookshare.org? If you provide them with proof of your
disability you can have a $50.00 subscription per year and you can
download up to 100 books in a Braille ready formatt or through various
other outputs. Right now that's the only way I get e-books and they
have most major title. Personally I like to call bookshare.org a kind
of net flix for the blind because of their accessability to so many
choices instantly. And you don't have to pay for each download.

Another option is Blio. Both its Windows and iOS apps are fully accessible.
The down side, however, is that it's library is small compared with other
mainstream e-book stores like Kindle.
