So for the Mac users, do y'all have an accessible way to read Kindle books on the Mac? An Intel Mac?
@devinprater I have it on my mac, but haven't tried it there yet. If you get an answer, please let me know. Right now I use kindle on either my phones or tablet
@devinprater It's annoying on the phones because I can't turn my phone off when I read from there. Duable, but annoying. I keep meaning to look into kindle on the mac and keep forgetting to do so, lol. Maybe now that someone else has brought it up I should stop procrastinating and look, lol
@MayAnderson2022 Yeah, I can understand that, but I just keep screen curtain on and hope that helps the battery a bit. But it's better than on Android where the screen *will* lock and the speech stops at the next page turn. Amazon kinda seems to do only the bare minimum for Kindle accessibility, especially on Android.
@devinprater OMG, yes that is so true. I tried it once on my android and gave up after a few minutes. I figured fine fine, I'll use kindle on the IPhone
@MayAnderson2022 Like they could be doing wiat speech central does, have a scrolling text view, and a play button at the bottom for those who just want to lock their screen and not read using the screen reader and Braille. But nope.
@devinprater Just can't have anything simple sometimes. But OMG, I just looked at kindle on the mac and remember why I keep procrastinating to figure it out. It doesn't make any since to me and is refusing to show all my books. hmph
@MayAnderson2022 @devinprater You can read books with Kindle on the Mac using its TTS functions. Took me way longer than it should have to figure that out. 😅 Now that I tell you this, however, I’ve not done it in a while and I’m forgetting the keystrokes. Just did a quick Google – perhaps, this will help: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GFBT6Y7AFLJY947N
