Re: [orca-list] Wanting to move back to Linux



I don't do vm's but do run more than one system here sometimes but I use
removeable solid state drives.  The prices on the smaller capacity drives
have come down though the prices on the terabyte drives are still
stratospheric.

Thanks for the advice everyone.



Yes if I could find something that was as expansive as the Kindle library yet DRM free I would be a very 
happy reader.

Still perhaps I can find a way back in two Linux anyway. Might have to do a bit of experimentation with 
VM?s.

Warmest wishes

That does sound like something they'd do. Thank goodness for unprotected EPUB files. If you use 
Bookshare, you can always download EPUB files from there and read them in an ePUB reader, like Epr in the 
terminal.

I just tried the Amazon Cloud Reader. Unless I'm missing something, the pages appear to be displayed as 
images. It also loads with an alert saying something along the lines of "screen readers are not 
currently supported in Cloud Reader, please open this book on the Kindle app on your device." Perhaps it 
was updated and is no longer accessible?

Ah yes, Kindle, I'd forgotten that's mainly what he wanted. Yeah, I'm not sure how well the web reader 
for Kindle works with Orca. I think I tried it about a year ago and found it frustrating because the 
lines were all really short, something like that.

Just to clarify, note that no#v-mode handles epub files and not any of the various kindle formats.

If you use Emacs, nov-mode (nov.el), is great.

ought to search on ebook-speaker linux and bookworm linux for your other

Hi everyone

I really want to move  back to Linux. However I think there are two
main reasons they have stuck with windows and would like to know if either
of these things are possible using Linux and Orca please?

I read a great deal of kindle content and I?m curious about the state
of e-book reading.



I am also getting into audio recording and editing with a smattering of
screen recording as well.

Are either of these things possible using orca please?

I have done a little digging on the Internet but have always found it
quite difficult to find Linux accessibility related information as
information on Linux seems to be quite fragmented.



Any advice anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Warmest wishes

James
