Voice Guide navigation for Kindle tablets
With Voice Guide navigation, any action performed by the user on the tablet is read aloud. For example, when a book is launched from the library, the innovative system will announce the book title and the fact that it has been opened, saying "The President Secrets. Book opened." This mode also provides immediate feedback to visually-impaired individuals for their actions on the tablet. Additionally, vision-impaired users can navigate the touchscreen with Explore by Touch functionality. In this mode, Kindle Fire tablet users are able to swipe their finger across the touchscreen and as they touch an item, the system announces what item has been tapped. A second tap on the item will perform the default action on the item.
