Hello guys!
Since, ebook readers especially customized for blind people, like Victor
ebook reader, are very expensive, I'm thinking of buying a Kindle. I have
heard that it has a screen reader called voiceview. How good is it? And how
long does the battery last while using screen readers for reading books?
Also, the latest version of Kindle Paper White doesn't come with an audio
jack, so I'm also open to purchasing an older model.
All suggestions are welcome.

Sociohack

Hi, I’ve never found the process of reading Kindle books from the PC difficult at all. You do have to go to Amazon to buy the books, it would be the same way if you have the Kindle app for your iPhone, I believe.

Can you be any more specific - which aspects do you find annoying?

Which app do you use to read the books, and are you talking about audiobooks
or eBooks?

Antony.
