Re: Kindle desktop reader and NVDA

Were you able to navigate through this book before the V1.36 update?

It would have been helpful if you had mentioned that you can read most of the other books in your library in your previous message because this provides a clue as to what may be happening.

Check the book listing on the Kindle Web site and see if enhanced typesetting is listed as being disabled.

If it is then this may be the reason for the issue.

Using NVDA 2022.1B4 and Kindle REader 1.36.  I am able to read most books in my library, but one particular book (The Hobbit 75th anniversary collection) does not allow me to navigate through the text field, though the Kindle built-in TTS works.
