Subject: [BCAB] USEFUL FEATURE IN KINDLE APP
Cross posting as I thought people on both lists would be interested in this.
Though ultimately it turns out to be not such good news for many blind
people. There's a very useful feature in the latest version of the Kindle
IOS app. At the bottom left of the screen there's a line of text giving the
remaining duration of a book when it's being read by VO. At the other side
of the screen that info is also given as a percentage. Sadly, however, VO
does not this info when you touch it so it's only available if you can see
it. Shame because it's something I'm sure many people would find useful.
