Kindle 3 And Voice Guide Are Up for Discussion, Monday, October 3, 2011
At lunch with a friend or relative, you are told enthusiastically about yet
another new book you can't wait to read. As you smile and say you can't
wait to read it yourself, you wonder how long it will be before you will.
Kindle is out there but difficult to use.
Not any more. New innovations seem to happen every day. With the Voice Guide
now available for purchase and use with the Kindle 3, you can download that
book and discuss it with the person who told you about it very soon.
What is the voice guide? Where can it be purchased? Will it work with each
addition of Kindle or only the Kindle 3?
In a world filled with technological advances faster than the speed of
sound, we seem to spend the majority of our time learning to navigate new
devices. If you groan at the thought, think of the possibilities of this
You will be able to download from millions of options available at Amazon.
Tim Emmons will tell us how. Do you want to download books wirelessly? Tim
will explain how that is done. How easy is it to set up speech. We will hear
how to do that during this presentation. How do you register your voice
guide with your Amazon account? Tim will make it easy. Is your computer
filled with books from bookshare or other text files? With the voice guide,
you will be able to read those too. As icing on an already delicious cake,
Mr. Emmons will tell us where books can be downloaded for free. In a time
not so long ago, our options and choices were limited. With the new Voice
Guide, that is true no longer.
Join us for an exciting presentation that will be beneficial in your
reading and downloading pleasure for years to come.
