That answer would be no, for the most part. The Kindle is black and
white only, and the images I've seen from uploaded textbooks are not
that great (and usually cannot be enlarged, either). I am using the
Kindle DX (the bigger one).

Subject: [Athen] question about Kindle

I don't have a Kindle to play with at this moment so I can't find out
whether or not the Kindle displays images, such as images that would be
needed for an art history class, with enough clarity and in color that
someone with moderate to severe visual imparity would be able to
identify them. Or, if the images in black and white, grayscale would be
viewable. I know that there are so many variables in one's vision that
my question might not even be a reasonable one to ask, but I'm not sure
how else to ask it.
