Amazon.com: Vision Impaired - Can a Kindle help? - kindle swindle Discussion ForumReviewing the responses I learn that the Kindle allows several font sizes, but even the largest is only comparable to a large text book. The contrast doesn't work as well for persons with macular degeneration as a backlit device.
A family member has been having a signifificant problem with her vision. I liked the idea of the magnification provided by a Kindle. I have several questions ...
Of course there's no screen reader integration - yet.
The good news is that there are no technical problems with increasing the font sizes, and even the screen reader abilities can't be too far away.
I hope Amazon will provide more support for the visually impaired in Kindle 2.0.
