Hi David
How do you know whether text to speech is enabled when purchasing a book?

Kevin,

I also purchase using my pc on amazon and use my wireless connection to
download the books.  One thing to remember when purchasing books is that you
should ensure that text to speech is enabled before you purchase.  This is
usually the case, but some publishers will not give permission for their
books to be read using speech.

Another thing worth poiting out is that Amazon have something called Kindle
daily deal which means one book is discounted each day, usually to a cost of
99p.

Hi,

You can download books either by attaching the Kindle, with a USB to the
computer, using the inbuilt wireless connection or (if it has mobile
connectivity) using the mobile connection. For wireless you set-up the
device to use your wireless connection (if you have one). You buy the book
and if wireless is turned on the book is downloaded automatically to your
Kindle. I buy practically all my books using the wireless connection. I
purchase books (using my PC) in the Kindle store as, to my knowledge it is
very difficult, (if not impossible) to purchase them, as a blind person
using the shop online facility on the Kindle.
I use Jaws, on my PC.
