I use a braille display, which might have made matters easier. What I do is tab to table of contents, see if there are items I want to skip such as acknowledgments etc., and I choose by arrowing down, the chapter I want to read, or say, the introduction. By hitting enter once highlighted, I am brought to that section and start reading.
Hope this helps,

Please excuse my ignorance, but once I get to the book title and its chapters, how can I read the book? Should I read it with JAWS, or are they audiobooks? I simply don’t know how to use it.
If installed, then just go to your download link and press it for the book to download. Then find the kindle icon on your desktop or whatever and press it. You should ideally land on your title, which you can press on. Tabbing once, you will get to the table of contents from where you can select the part, chapter you need. Once you get more books, these will appear and I have found that right-arrowing is more handy then down-arrowing if you have many book, as I do have.
Hope this helps,
I installed it both on my iPhone and PC, but I don’t know how to read books at any.
If you have a smart phone, the Kindle app works fine with either Talkback on Android, or VoiceOver on an iPhone.
Or, search for Accessible Kindle for PC, and install it.
You will need to login with your Amazon account, or create one.
Sighted assistance is helpful for that login screen, as it does not read right with JAWS.
