Reading Kindle Books with JAWS 18


Dave Mitchell
 

Hi All,   Does anyone have experience with reading Kindle books with JAWS 18?
I found Kindle for PC accessibility Installer version 1.14.43034 but am not sure if this is the most current version.
Off list is fine but any tips on the procedure will be much appreciated.  Thanks, Mitch

hi the newest version has a 99 in the ap name version. as far as using jaws to read your kindle books I prefer using the female and or mail voices that are not eliquince and or related to jaws to read the books. I hope this helps from Mich.

I will try and dig up the steps later today. I had a student who had Kendle books for some school assignments and I was able to find a converter that would turn them into MS Word documents, keep links, headers and so on. Really sweet converter.

There was a podcast on the Blind Bargains website from CSUN talking about the latest version of Kindle for PC which has improved accessibility. It seems to work much better with NVDA than JAWS at the moment, though.

It is version 1.19.

My experience is that very few of the books I have purchased allow the
new works-with-jaws feature set. So I am likely sticking with using
calibre to convert kindle books to something I can easily use.

I have used it with no problems. Just download the latest version from Amazon’s site, and be sure to use the latest version of jaws 18.

Hi,

Some of the books I have purchased read with a text to speech voice
that isn't JAWS. Is there a way to speed up that speech and such in
the kindle for pc app? How do you know which version of the app you
have?

thanks,

Dacia

To find the app version, use JAWS Insert-Ctrl-V

To decrease/increase narration speech rate in the Kindle PC app: dash (-)/equals (=)

Dale, is there a list of keystrokes that are actually readable?
the reply you sent to decrease/increase narration doesn't have any
letters, unless they are there and JAWS doesn't see them?

Oops! So sorry just let's set the record straight -

Kindle Narration Rate decrease/increase is
Decrease underscore (Shift minus)
Increase plus (Shift equals)

Hah! I've been using the Kindle app so long that I don't remember where I got the keyboard commands from... I imagine you could Google Kindle narration keyboard - or something similar.
The app is a first attempt at accessibility, IMHO. Quick OCR helps, Kind of. So does Omnipage, but that's a lot of work.

Here's what I use as keyboard commands

Go to library control-l
Open title control-o

Toggle Continuous or single-page reading mode: shift-control-c
Toggle male or female voice shift-control-v
Decrease narration rate shift-minus (which is underscore)
Increase narration rate shift-equals (which is plus)

Full-screen reading mode F11


If anyone else has something to make Kindle easier to use, please chime in.

Hi, when I do shift equals, it just says underline and doesn't speed anything up, I don't think shift minus really works either. Are there are better ways to do it?

Do you have the accessibility for kindle version installed? As far as
I know those only work in that version). When I use shift+equals I am
told "Book narration rate increased" or "Book narration rate at
maximum" I am not aware of any other way to change the narration rate
when using the kindle app's self-voicing capability.

Hi,

Some of the books I have purchased read with a text to speech voice
that isn't JAWS. Is there a way to speed up that speech and such in the
kindle for pc app? How do you know which version of the app you have?

thanks,

Dacia

Hi All, Does anyone have experience with reading Kindle books with JAWS
18?

I found Kindle for PC accessibility Installer version 1.14.43034 but
am not sure if this is the most current version.

Off list is fine but any tips on the procedure will be much appreciated.
Thanks, Mitch

I have version 1.201 or whatever it is which I think is the newest
version and it implied that it didn't need the accessibility plug in.
Is that correct?
thanks,

when using the kindle app's self-voicing capability.

Hah! I've been using the Kindle app so long that I don't remember where
I got the keyboard commands from... I imagine you could Google Kindle
narration keyboard - or something similar.
The app is a first attempt at accessibility, IMHO. Quick OCR helps, Kind
of. So does Omnipage, but that's a lot of work.

Here's what I use as keyboard commands

Go to library control-l
Open title control-o

Toggle Continuous or single-page reading mode: shift-control-c
Toggle male or female voice shift-control-v
Decrease narration rate shift-minus (which is underscore)
Increase narration rate shift-equals (which is plus)

Full-screen reading mode F11


If anyone else has something to make Kindle easier to use, please chime
in.

Dale, is there a list of keystrokes that are actually readable?
the reply you sent to decrease/increase narration doesn't have any
letters, unless they are there and JAWS doesn't see them?

To find the app version, use JAWS Insert-Ctrl-V

To decrease/increase narration speech rate in the Kindle PC app: dash
(-)/equals (=)

If it's not the accessibility version then you simply use whatever
keys your screen reader normally does. AFAIK The shift+equals is
strictly for the accessibility version's self-voicing.
