Re: kindle and nvda



10.8. Kindle for PC
NVDA supports reading and navigating books in Amazon Kindle for PC.
This functionality is only available in Kindle books designated with
"Screen Reader: Supported" 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.
10.8.1. 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.
10.8.2. 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.
hope that help, God bless you!

some books are designed as screen reader accessible like something in
kindle. with those books only, NVDA will work. else we should rely on
kindle's default reader. thats why kindle is useless to me as i'm
unable to purchase and read my most wanted tamil books and unable to
find out the list of english books enabled with screen reader support.

Do you know how to send completely new messages to the list? You sent
message in a completely unrelated thread, you left the subject line the
same, and you left all the unrelated messages below yours.
If you do that, you make it much less likely that those you want to reach
will read the message. Many people decide which messages to read by
the subject lines. Such people won't even know you sent a message on a
different subject.

Hello all, I have been reading up on the Kindle for PC app from
Amazon. It is supposed to have special functions that work
specifically with nvda, but I cannot find any documentation other than
the fact that they exist.

The following two links are the best documentation I have been able to
find Colon

I am not seeing how to move by characters words mines and sentences.
I am also not clear on how to use special nvda features like the
ability to look up words within a Kindle ebook.

It any direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and regards,
