Kindles for the Blind?

The Chronicle has an article on two universities who will not buy more Kindles until they are more user friendly for blind students.

If the only reason they bought Kindles was for blind students, that makes sense. Otherwise it does not. Regular textbooks aren’t friendly for blind students.

I love the Kindle’s reader feature.

I doubt the Amazon folks were thinking about blind users when they created it. However, I am sure the functionality can be improved.
