Hello Brian,

Thanks for the help with this. We followed your suggestion and got the word file to the student. This is definitely not the ideal, but it will work for the present.

Some Kindle books maintain the original page numbers, so a user can jump to a specific page of the original printed version no matter what display settings are used in the Kindle reader. If the textbooks that the student needs access to have this feature, then in absence a solution as a temporary workaround you could create an accessible table of contents for them in another document (word, pdf, textfile, etc.). The student could alt tab to the application that has the table of contents, read the page number, then go back to the kindle app and use the go to page feature.

Hello Everyone,

I am working with a student who needs to use the Kindle for PC with Accessibility application to read text books using a screenreader. I have figured out the basic methods for reading, changing speech attributes, moving to a specific page etc. I have not been able to find a way to skip to a specific chapter or section. Visually the eBooks have a navigation bar that can be used with a mouse, but I cannot find a way to get to or navigate this area with a screenreader. The help information seems to be rather incomplete. I am trying to hold out hope that there is a method that is not documented to do this. Would anyone happen to know how to do this or have a link to more complete documentation on the hotkeys for Kindle for PC with Accessibility?
