Re: Does Kindle Work Well With JAWS?

Gennie Eachus <eachusgm@...>

I read ebooks on my Kindle app on my phone all the time. My only problem is
that I wish that they would make more voices available. I really like James
for reading. So many of the books that I want to read are available only on
Kindle. Well, I could read with iBook and Nuck, but I prefer Kindle.

Have you ever tried to read an actual e-book from Amazon using the Kindle
ap? If so, were you able to do it?

Neither the regular or accessible kindle app REALLY "works" with jaws,
what THE accessible version does is detect that an accessibility
program is running (at least jaws, NVDA and window eyes are detected,
don't know about others) and then enables self-voicing. My chief
complaint is that the choice of voices is very limited and of even
lower quality than my book port.

If I have the choice between kindle, PDF and text kindle is always my
last choice of formats.

what I downloaded this morning.

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

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.

Dear Listers:

I am considering trying to purchase an e-book in Kindle edition
from Amazon.
I have downloaded the Kindle ap, but first I need to sign in and
register it. But first, I need to know from somebody if it has
ever worked well with JAWS. I am using JAWS 16. Have any of you
out there been able to use the Kindle ap and read an e-book using
JAWS? If so, how well has JAWS worked for you. Would any of you
recommend using Kindle with JAWS?
