Like David, I have no desire whatsoever to read on my pc. Unfortunately, it is an either/or situation with Kindle. Either you read books on the computer, in which case you can use the latest Kindle for Pc which has screen reader features, or you use Codex, which requires the older Kindle for PC version which does not. I choose the latter. I convert Kindle books into .txt or .epub effortlessly, and read them on my braille device or on and iPhone using Voice Dream Reader. Getting this process set up is a little tricky, but once that small hurdle is overcome, Kindle is wonderful.

prefer to use my iPhone. However, for several reasons I acknowledge that
this is not an ideal situation for some people and that being able to
use a Windows computer to read Kindle content may be preferable and even

convert the books from the kindle format to a plain text file? Thanks
for any help.
