Amazon has updated its iOS Kindle app with accessibility features to allow blind and visually impaired customers to navigate their Kindle libraries and read books.
“With this update, we’re also making customer-favorite features-such as X-Ray, End Actions, sharing, highlighting and bookmarking — more accessible.” said Dorothy Nicholls, Vice President, Amazon Kindle.
Relying on Apple’s VoiceOver technology, the application allows users to read character-by-character, word-by-word, line-by-line, or continuously, and move forward or backward in the text. In addition, users can also customize the reading experience by changing the font, text size, background color, margin and brightness. Finally, there’s support for iOS’ own accessibility features like Zoom, Assistive Touch, and Stereo to Mono, as well as peripheral Braille displays.
The update Kindle app is already available for iOS users, while additional platforms will get these features in the near future…
