Kevin,

No problem at all.  We all need to be cautious about such things.  I would
be astonished if there were any problems such as viruses with this file.

Thanks David. Apologies if I caused any offence. I know that you would never
knowingly circulate anything which you believed could be harmful but, given
the nasties out there I felt that I needed to ask the question.

Kind regards,

Kevin

I would not have mentioned it unless I was suure of the person's
trustworthiness.  Having said that, I take no responsibility for anything
which may go wrong.  You try it at your own risk.  I know the person who put
it up on Dropbox to be entirely honourable and she would definitely not
knowingly offer a corrupt file for download.

I am told that it works well, so would be amazed if you had any problems.

Hi David,

Thanks. I'm tempted to try it but can you please confirm whether it is from
someone you trust implicitly as I don't want to download a nasty onto my PC.

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi all,


I have been advised that the new Kindle for pc software with accessible
features is useable outside of the U.S.  The download itself is not easy to
get, so below is a dropbox link which should help.  I believe it is 240 MB
so be warned.  I have not tried this myself but would be interested in
knowing how people get on.

I'm forwarding a message I've just received about free Amazon Kindle
software with accessibility features built in. If anybody tries this, can
they let me know how they get on?

Dear blind-interest@xxxxxxxxxx subscriber,

Amazon.com is releasing a new version of Kindle for PC that adds
accessibility features designed for blind and low-vision customers.

Kindle for PC with Accessibility Plugin is a free, downloadable application
for your Windows PC. It provides the following accessibility features:
text-to-speech reading with adjustable voice settings, voice-guided menu
navigation, large font sizes, high contrast reading mode, keyboard
navigation, and accessible shortcuts.

With this software, for the first time ever, the entire collection of
English language books in the Kindle Store can be read aloud. With over
750,000 English language titles, Amazon offers the largest selection of
accessible ebooks. In order to use the text-to-speech feature, an external
screen reader program must be installed and running on the Windows PC.

The free download is available at www.amazon.com/kindle/accessibility.

We welcome your feedback at kindle-PC-accessibility-feedback@xxxxxxxxxxx

Sincerely,
The Kindle Team
