Kindles have useful options that you could be need to reap the benefits of it. Long-press a phrase or phrase to see its definition, spotlight it, or take notes. You may search your complete e-book for that individual phrase or phrase or translate it to or from different languages.
Word Wise reveals quick definitions in small textual content throughout the strains. Unfortunately, it isn’t out there for all books, however when it’s, you may flip it on or off and select extra and fewer hints. Clicking the quick definition opens an extended one from Word Wise and the New Oxford American Dictionary or Oxford Dictionary of English (you may change between the 2), plus translations, and a Wikipedia web page, if relevant.
While studying, faucet the highest of the display and click on “Aa” to alter font measurement or sort—there’s even a font referred to as OpenDyslexic that helps make studying simpler for folks with dyslexia. You can management margin sizes and line spacing from that menu too.
When a Kindle is linked to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones, VoiceView Screen Reader (accessed via settings → accessibility) means that you can use gestures to navigate your system and reads aloud what you’ve got pressed. It will even learn a e-book aloud, although it would not sound practically as good as an audiobook does.
Amazon owns Goodreads, so it syncs seamlessly to Kindles (press the three-dot menu → Goodreads). If you’ve got a Goodreads account, you may assessment the Kindle books you’ve got learn or browse your bookshelf and proposals. Long-pressing a phrase or phrase, along with what’s talked about above, opens up an choice to share quotes on to Goodreads.
There’s a internet browser too for those who’re linked to the web (three-dot menu → Web Browser). It’s not the most effective, so I’d reserve it for emergency searches.
