Dave, I have a suspicion that the lack of enhanced typesetting may
be the culprit for books which appear to be not accessible using the
Kindle for PC app. Go to the Kindle bookstore and visit the page for
a book that is not working with your Kindle app and see if enhanced
typesetting is off.
If it is off or disabled the Codex app
likely allow you to convert the book into a Word document or into a
plain text document. However, if you do decide to use Codex you will
need to downgrade your Kindle app to version 1.17 as Codex does not
work with v1.19 or later. The older version of the Kindle for PC app
is available on the Web site that hosts the Codex software. Please
note that I am not able to provide individual or one on one support
regarding this app. However, you should feel free to ask follow-up
questions either on this list or on the Kindle list. To subscribe to

I am speculating that the reason most Kindle books read fine has
something to do with the way the text is formatted ahead of time.
I have looked for information before I buy a given title as to if
is something special about the way the book has been produced.
give some info about how the text was prepared, and others do not.
I have bought titles that did not disclose how they were prepared,
they work fine.
Can anyone tell me what to look for in the Book Description that
give me a heads up as to whether or not this book is going to read
JAWS or NVDA, or if it will be read with the On Board Kindle
I really want to stop wasting my money, buying books that do not

Thanks for any hints,
