The Kindle Fire series of tablets are also based on Android and are growing in availability in Australia. Due to their use of a customised version of Android, the accessibility features available are very similar to those found in Android tablets including the TalkBack screen reader.
The Fire HDX is the current model and contains a number of accessibility features. These features include:
- Screen Reader & Explore by Touch
- Pair a Braille Display with your kindle
- Screen Magnifier
- Use Large Font
- Closed Captioning
- Change Stereo Sound to Mono Sound
The other option to make kindle accessible is to use the kindle app on another tablet device such as using the Kindle app and the VoiceOver screen reader on the iPad. The ABF has discovered how accessible this application can be. For additional information the Kindle Fire accessibility features, refer to the Android accessibility information.
