Chicago - Amazon has provided minimal accessibility in the development of their previous Kindle devices. For the first time a Kindle device will have built in accessibility for a number of disabilities
The All-new Kindle Fire HDX 7" tablet will have built in accessibility features for the visually impaired, hearing impaired, and the mobility impaired as soon as users obtain the device.
In the past Amazon has incorporated minimal accessibility solutions that weren't full access solutions to the many disabled consumers that used the device but this new kindle Fire will incorporate settings and software to make the seven inch tablet fully accessible out of the box.
According to Amazon’s accessibility page for the device here are a number of new features to make the device accessible for people with disabilities. Some of the highlights include: a built-in screen reader from Ivona Text to Speech for blind users, a screen magnifier with high contrast options for low vision users, closed captioning and stereo to mono for hearing impaired users, and Bluetooth keyboard navigation for users that would have trouble using gestures on the screen.
This new Kindle fire will also have accessible user guides that detail how to use the accessibility tools on the Kindle Fire in an on-device Accessibility User Guide. The guide will provide helpful instructions and tips for using accessibility tools with the different features on your Kindle Fire.
The new version of their 7-inch tablet will not be available until October 18, but you can pre-order it today for the current price of $409.00
