[access-uk] Re: The new Kindle players

The ideal situation is that the Kindle app on the iPhone, iTouch and iPad were 
made accessible. I hear it isn't. 

If the Kindle app were accessible this means that VI people would be able to 
access iBooks and Amazon downloads on one device. And I presume that the 
publisher ban on self voiced books on the kindle wouldn't port across to the 
iPhone.

The  spec says that the menus are self voicing and that books can be read 
outloud, what isn't clear is if you can using the in built speech purchase 
books from the kindle market place.  If not then the additional £40 for the 3g 
version would be wasted.

HI. Does anyone know if the new 109 or 149 pound kindles are accessible? And if 
so, is the speech synth any good? I'm an eloquence fan as it's good at speed)
