Kindle for iOS Updated with New Accessibility Features for the Blind

Amazon updated its Kindle iOS app today to add accessibility features for the blind and visually impaired. Now this population will have options to make it easier to navigate their Kindle libraries and use the VoiceOver feature.

Included in the update:

  • Accessibility features make it easier for blind and visually impaired customers to navigate their Kindle libraries, read & interact with books, and more. Enable VoiceOver in your device settings to begin.
  • Easily rate and review books by accessing ‘Before you go...’ directly from The ‘Go to’ menu
  • Enhancements to ‘Before you go…’ including the ability to download a free sample and email yourself a reminder about recommended books. 
  • Additional Font Selection for Japan - Hiragino Mincho ProN (Serif)
  • Bug Fixes/Stability improvements

Kindle for iOS is available for free as a universal app (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) in the App Store [iTunes Link].
