[access-uk] Re: Kindle

Hi
I have found navigating to certain points in a book a bit of a problem. I am not sure why this is as the newspapers you can receive are excellent. With the newspapers you can navigate to a particular section such as sport then navigate through all the sports stories before choosing which one you want. I downloaded a couple versions of the bible for example and it was not possible with the speech anyway to navigate to a specific book.

Hi David

A question please coming from a student's perspective.  How easy is it to
navigate and jump through the Kindle books though?  For instance, I might
want one for reference purposes. Would it be any use for that kind of work
in your opinion, or is it really for people who just want to read a book
from beginning to end?


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Wendy,



The new Kindle costing £89 is not accessible, but the Kindle Keyboard,
costing £109 is if you can find it. Amazon do not have it in stock. The 3G
Kindle at £149 is exactly the same regarding accessibility as the Kindle
Keyboard but has 3g connectivity as well as wi fi.



Once the Kindle is set up, you can purchase books using your pc.  You have
to have a kindle account and register it on Amazon.  Then you can purchase
books and add them to your kindle yourself. Purchasing books has to be done
on the pc though unless you have sight.

Thanks Mark that is really helpful. When you say you can't order from the
Kindle, can you download books onto the Kindle if you order books online or
do you need to get someone to order all your books for you? Also, you
mention the 3G version. Is this an older version and, is there any better
version to get to enable you to order books from the Kindle?

Thanks very much.

Wendy

hI

tHE NEW KINDLE IS TOUCH SCREEN AND HAS NO SPEECH AND SO IS TOTALLY
INACCESSIBLE.  hOWEVER THE OLDER VERSIONS WHICH CAN STILL BE BOUGHT FROM
AMAZON ARE PRETTY ACCESSIBLE FOR SELECTING YOUR BOOKS.  yOU WILL NEED
SIGHTED ASSISTANCE TO TURN ON THE SPEECH FEATURE IN THE FIRST PLACE BUT THEN
IT WORKS REALLY WELL.  tHE ONLY THING YOU CANNOT DO IS ORDER BOOKS VIA THE
THE KINDLE IF YOU HAVE THE 3G VERSION AS THE SEARCH AND ONLINE FUNCTIONS DO
NOT SPEAK.  i LOVE THE KINDLE AND IT HAS BEEN A GOD SEND WHILE i WAS ON
HOLIDAY RECENTLY AS IT IS A BIT LIGHTER THAN BRAILLE.

Hi all

Can anyone give me advice as to how accessible the Kindle is. If so,
which is the best one to get and is there any additional software needed?

Thanks.

Wendy
