Re: Using NVDA for Ebooks and Kindle


may i ask whats the format of kindle books?
and i think that there is no different between jaws and nvda in this regard.
NVDA supports reading and navigating books in Amazon Kindle for PC.
This functionality is only available in Kindle books that support
"Enhanced Typesetting", which you can check on the details page for
the book.
Browse mode is used to read books. It is enabled automatically when
you open a book or focus the book area. The page will be turned
automatically as appropriate when you move the cursor or use the say
all command. You can manually turn to the next page with the pageDown
key and turn to the previous page with the pageUp key.
Single letter navigation is supported for links and graphics, but only
within the current page. Navigating by link also includes footnotes.
8.8.1. Text Selection
Kindle allows you to perform various functions on selected text,
including obtaining a dictionary definition, adding notes and
highlights, copying the text to the clipboard and searching the web.
To do this, first select text as you normally would in browse mode;
e.g. by using shift and the cursor keys. Once you have selected text,
press the applications key or shift+f10 to show the available options
for working with the selection. If you do this with no text selected,
options will be shown for the word at the cursor.
8.8.2. User Notes
You can add a note regarding a word or passage of text. To do this,
first select the relevant text and access the selection options as
described above. Then, choose Add Note.
When reading in browse mode, NVDA refers to these notes as comments.
To view, edit or delete a note:
1. Move the cursor to the text containing the note.
2. Access the options for the selection as described above.
3. Choose Edit Note.
i copied the guidance from nvda user guide and sent it.
inhance typesetting is changed to designated with screen reader
supported in nvda 2017.2
hope that help and God bless you.

Kindle books compatible with JAWS will work just as well with NVDA.

The vast majority of eBooks, including Kindle ones, have digital rights
management on them. This means that you can't just copy into a text file;
the idea is that you only read the file in an approved app, such as

You can refund a bought Kindle book with no questions asked if you're
about accessibility, so I'd say get the very latest NVDA and Kindle for
and you're good to go.

Subject: [nvda] Using NVDA for Ebooks and Kindle

Dear Group,

There are many books on that are in Kindle form.

The description says they are only compatible with JAWS.

I'm wondering if reading these books is possible with NVDA?

Are these Kindle books the same thing as Ebooks, and are they
just something you can cut and paste into Notepad or Word?

Thanks for the help.

nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
