Any suggestions we can pass on would be welcome. I have explained we can’t help in Germany and Mark lives in Canada.

Thanks

    There are a number of websites giving information on voice operation of Kindle, iPads and Android.

    Examples are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL4Kz1iKYD0 and https://gettecla.com/blogs/news/13884757-4-ways-quadriplegics-can-use-an-ipad-or-iphone

    A search for voice operated tablets will give many more.

    Hope this is of assistance.

    Hi, talking to a friend I am passing on these suggestions – You could try a Manfrotto “Magic Arm” see https://www.manfrotto.co.uk/magic-arm-with-bracket and a suitable bracket such as https://www.manfrotto.co.uk/super-photo-clamp-without-stud-aluminium.
    Manfrotto are a major worldwide supplier of photographic clamps etc so will probably be available in Canada.

    Using the stand alone Alexa device could be better than using the Kindle version – it has a really neat array of 7 microphones so its speech recognition is superb.
    Hope this helps – I really know nothing about all this, just passing on info

    Interesting – I hadn’t come across the Kindle app. Found a clip of someone using it in the way you describe.

    Looks like it’s also available for IOS too.

    I haven’t tried this myself – but it looks fairly straightforward to do this on a suitable Android tablet, running the Kindle app and some inexpensive additional apps.
