ACCESSIBLE KINDLE FOR PC NOW AVAILIBLE FOR DOWNLOAD

Well further to my rant on the Accessible Kindle for PC not being availible here in the UK, what did I find on opening my e-mail this morning? That there is now a working link from which it can in fact be downloaded. Accessible Kindle for PC works with screenreading software (I.E. software such as Jaws which converts text into speech and braille) while the standard Kindle for PC can not be used by screen readers.

To download Accessible Kindle for PC please visit the following link http://www.sendspace.com/file/vj5oue.

    Hi,
    Yes, I have downloaded that, but it does not seem to be accessible. Or am I missing something. How do you get JAWS to read the text of your book when you’ve got this Accessible Kindle on your PC?

    thanks.

    • Thank you for your comment. You can find instructions on using Accessible Kindle for PC by visiting the following link http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_pcland_pcaccess?nodeId=200596280&pop-up=1. . If the link doesn’t work please go to amazon.com and search for Accessible Kindle for PC.

      A confession, I’ve downloaded the Accessible Kindle for PC and used it very briefly. However, as I have my own portable Kindle device I have no expertise as regards using the Accessible Kindle for PC!

      There has been some discussion of Accessible Kindle for PC on the access-uk mailing list. If you Google the list you should find the posts.

      Hope this helps and good luck.

      Kind regards,
      Kevin
