Re: Inaccessible Kindle books

Archive.org has all kinds of things including the free librovox collection of books and many other collections made available from different libraries from many countries.  It is not limited to United States.  It also has movies, old time radio, tv shows, videos, internet websites content where the sites themselves no longer exist, artwork and many other things too numerous to list here.  Just go to archive.org and look around.

Hi Fanus,

There is a website: https://archive.org/
Try this e-mail address: jessamyn@...
Ask her for an account for Print disabled access to archive.org.

Hello Ron
Unfortunately I live in South Africa, so it is terribly expensive to call
numbers in the US. I was hoping that there is an email address where I
could communicate with the disability department.

Hi Fanus,

I had this happen with a book purchased on Amazon Kindle and I called
the Amazon Disability line at 888-283-1678. They took care of it for me.

You can check out Archives.org and enroll in their print disabled access
program. They can find a book that is inaccessible and many times
convert it into a form that is readable. If you qualify as print
disabled--similar to the NLS program in the USA and the CNIB in Canada,
you can gain access to proprietary books that archive.org has access to.

Hello list
The past few days I purchased 3 books from the Kindle section of amazon.
None of these is accessible on the pc and when I load the books on my
iPad
Mini 5 I get a message "VoiceOver does not support this content". I have
purchased many Kindle books but never encountered this problem. Is there
any
way to read or must I just ask for a refund.
Regards
Fanus
