This week, I’m excited to announce our update to the Kindle for PC app, making it easier for visually impaired customers to find and read millions of Kindle books. Customers can now use the popular, open source NVDA screen reader to find and open Kindle books on a Windows PC.
While many organizations celebrate May 18 as Global Accessibility Awareness Day, the entire month of May is Accessibility Awareness Month at Amazon. It’s a full month of accessibility-related technical talks, workshops, and hands-on activities. These events are attended by thousands of Amazon employees across the country and around the world.
