Am Able to Reproduce Issue with Purchasing Kindle Books


Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

A while back, someone posted here that they were having trouble purchasing Kindle books on the Amazon site with NVDA. I just tried to purchase a book, and I couldn't find either the buy with one click button or the add to cart button. After trying this with both Firefox and Chrome with similar results, I called their disability hot line. The representative I talked to was able to add the book to my cart, and I was able to purchase it that way. I explained to her that others with visual impairments who use screen reading software are also having difficulty, and she said she would pass it along. Will just have to see what happens.

I almost never purchase anything from Amazon but there is a button when you purchase a Kindle version of a book that says somethin like send to my Kindle.  I don't know if this will do what people want.  But those interested can try the button and see what happens.

A lot of people only have a virtual Kindle though, so that would not seem logical, how would it know where to send it. I am hearing this issue might be wider than just books to the kindle though, even normal purchases might be affected. My guess is that something is screwed in the page mark up for landmarks and headings.

Surely a virtual Kindle can log on to the Amazon cloud storage service just
the same as a physical one can?

All the "send to my Kindle" button does it to put the item into your cloud
storage account, for the eBook device (real or virtual) to download next time
it syncs.

It would appear to be a problem with the page.  I didn't know if the system had been changed so you had to use the button but at the same time, I didn't see how such a change would accommodate those who don't have physical Kindles.  I tried looking up a print book and I did see an add to cart button.  As I said, I almost never purchase from Amazon so those who do may comment further.  At this point, the problem could be more general or not.

What is meant by "virtual kindle?" Is the Kindle app being referred to?
