Subject: [Athen] Kindle Fire tablet accessibility

Hello All,

I've been asked by administrators to review a Kindle Fire tablet for accessibility and present a report. Potential users are students. That's all the information I have.

I'm aware of the history of accessibility concerns with various Kindle products, but I'm not familiar with the Kindle Fire. What are the accessibility concerns for it, if any? What experiences have you had?
