Here's the Newswire about the upcoming         Tek Talk program about the 
Kindle on Accessible World on Monday.

Kindle 3 And  Voice Guide Are Up for Discussion, Monday, October 3, 2011


At lunch with a friend or relative, you are told enthusiastically about yet 
another new book you can't wait to read. As you smile and say  you can't wait 
to read  it yourself, you wonder how long it will be before you will. Kindle is 
out there but difficult to use.

Not any more. New innovations seem to happen every day. With the Voice Guide 
now available for purchase and use with the Kindle 3, you can download that 
book and discuss it with the person who told you about   it very soon. 

What is the voice guide? Where can it be purchased? Will it work with each 
addition of Kindle or only the Kindle 3?

In a world filled with technological advances faster than the speed of sound, 
we seem to spend the majority of our time learning to navigate  new devices. If 
you groan at the thought, think of the possibilities of this one.

You will be able to download from millions of options available at Amazon. Tim 
Emmons will tell us how. Do you want to download books wirelessly? Tim will 
explain how that is done. How easy is it to set up speech. We will hear how to 
do that during this presentation. How do you register your voice guide with 
your Amazon account? Tim will make it easy. Is your computer filled with books 
from bookshare or other text files? With the voice guide, you will be able to 
read those too. As icing on an already delicious cake, Mr. Emmons will tell us 
where books can be downloaded for free. In a time not so long ago, our options 
and choices were limited. With the new Voice Guide, that is true no longer.

Join us for an exciting presentation that will be beneficial  in  your reading  
 and downloading pleasure for years to come.
