Kindle as Assistive Technology

Untill recently I had not considered that the Kindle could be used as assistive technology, I then saw a friend using one and noticed that the tinted screen was much easier to read than any regular tablet or ereader I have seen.

I then did more research and found that the Kindle has a lot of accessibility features that are particularly handy for my Dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome.  Firstly, as I mentioned previously, the Kindle has a glare free, tinted screen that works very well.  You then have options of enlarging the text size, meaning that a page of text can be far less daunting.

There is a text to speech function, which works very well and you have the option of changing the speed of the speech.  There is a built in dictionary, search function and very importantly, your page is always bookmarked.

Take a look at the video below that we found on YouTube.
