Re: [BCAB] Supporting the AppleVis Kindle app campaign Mel Griffiths 22 Nov 2012 11:15 GMT

I honestly don't think amazon care. I have tried to contact them on several occasions about their iOS app being inaccessible but haven't as yet got any response. In my opinion the Kindle Keyboard is only barely accessible and really doesn't impress me. It seems Amazon have done the bare minimum to cover themselves legally.

Hi,

Considering they could have made the Kindle Keyboard more accessible, I
personally don't think Amazon could care less.

All the best

If you have never visited
www.applevis.com
it is a website dedicated to all things Apple, and has some brilliant info
there.  Their latest newsletter is looking for support that might encourage
Amazon to make their Kindle app accessible with VoiceOver.

So, if you aren't registered on the site, or don't even know of its
existence, please take a couple of minutes to register and add your support
to try and encourage Amazon to make their Kindle app accessible.  Nobody is
holding their breath, but it is worthwhile trying.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns
