Re: Does Kindle Work Well With JAWS?

Did you get the Kindle for PC with Accessibility Plugin? If you didn't download that version, go to
and read the information on that page. There is also a download link.
With this version of the program, JAWS reads the menus, while the built-in speech that comes with the program reads the text of the book.
If you are reading a novel or other book that you can read straight through, the program works fairly well. However, if you need to go to different parts of a book or search for specific content, forget it. Navigation is limited, and JAWS can't read the text in the book directly. The JAWS OCR feature can give you access to the text of each page, but multiple columns cause reading difficulties.
If you have an iPhone or iPad, the iOS app works much better for reading EBooks.
