Hi Everyone,
I would like to chime in on this if I may please. Can someone tell me the
difference between a kindle and a windows tablet? This all sounds very
interesting to me. I am hopeing to give up my PC in due time.
I do have an iOS, but I just don't want to holy and soly depend just on my
iOS.
I would like something so I can compose and receive emails, browse the
internet, read books, listen to music etc.

Thank you all in advance.
Janet

Yes, as Carlos accurately said, "a virtual keyboard." I am not savvy enough
to have thought of the correct technical word, but that is what it is - a
virtual keyboard.

Bye for now,

You type on the keyboard that comes up under the screen; letters or numbers
and symbols. It takes getting used to.

oh yes the RCA galileo pro is good to take places without the keyboard
sometimes, especially if you just want to write short messages, read books,
and other media such as audio and videos. in other words. take the galileo
off its keyboard dock, when you know you are gunna use it for stuff besides
lots of typing.

I'm glad to hear that you got one with a keyboard. My

are both liking the Kindle so much that we decided to get
another one.
After information from the list and checking with Amazon,
we bought an
RCA Galileo with a keyboard. Jim knows a guy at the Senior
Center that
has one, carries the thing everywhere, just loves the
thing.
We think that the keyboard will be good for me. He loves
the Kindle,
keeps it beside him a lot of the time on the couch, plays
games while
watching TV and does research. I look up the weather and
have gone
into other aps. I was advised to go slow - very smart
words. I think
though, like a computer, that it is an ongoing learning
experience and
one I'll enjoy for a long time to come.

I was just starting to fool with the keyboard on the
thing, when we
ordered the other one. I do, however, want to learn to use
the screen
keyboard, because this one can be detached from the
keyboard. It might
be convenient some of the time to take it places without
the keyboard
case.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

yes why is that surprising to you? I got a tablet for $80
that also
comes with a physical keyboard dock. and i can use it to
browse the
web, check email, and use tons and tons of apps and games.
well the
accessible ones at least. and the tablet works excellent.

yes the kindle is 100% accessible
now. you can by one for $50. and turn on voice view screen
reader by
touch and hold two fingers on the screen after the kindle
is turned on
and is on first setup screen. or if its on already and on
home screen,
hold in power button for five seconds and then touch and
hold two
fingers on the screen to turn on voice view screen reader.
