Many Apologies. I have been looking at too much stuff this afternoon and got
confused. David is right and I'm out of my tree.

The Kindle Application is not self voicing so you will need a screen reader
to use it.

However the screen reader cannot access the text of the Kindle book and the
application provides its own TTS for the purposes of book reading.
So basically use your screen reader to load the book and then press control
R to get the Kindle app to start reading the book.

There is also nothing to stop a sighted person downloading the application
and listening to books.

I am wondering can a sighted person download and listen to Kindle for PC if
they download the accessable Kindle or is it only for screen readers using
their tts?
