[access-uk] Re: FW: [BCAB] Free Amazon Kindle software with accessibility

It is quite possible that the delay may be that Amazon have to supply a 
localised version of the Kindle software for the UK market and that this may be 
on its way. Has anybody actually asked rather than venting about it?

Regards.
