IÂ tried it several months ago with a book I needed to read on
short notice. I remember finding it extremely frustrating. As I recall, I couldn't stop and have it start at the same point, but perhaps there's a bookmark function that I somehow missed. As I recall, I also couldn't conveniently go back to re-read a sentence or paragraph. As Soronel indicates, the voice was horrible to listen to and hard to comprehend. In the end, I bought the paperback and performed OCR on it so that I could read it with JAWS. > > > > > > -----Original Message----- > > > From: Jfw [mailto:jfw-bounces@...] On Behalf Of Rick > > > Miller via Jfw > > > Sent: Tuesday, July 07, 2015 5:51 PM > > > To: The Jaws for Windows support list.; The Jaws for Windows support list. > > > Cc: Rick Miller > > > Subject: Re: Does Kindle Work Well With JAWS? > > > > > > Have you ever tried to read an actual e-book from Amazon using the Kindle ap? If so, were you able to do it? > > > > > > Rick Miller > > > > > > > > > >
