Kindle Fire Tablet with Google Play Store, Now with Hands Free Alexa Personal Assistant
Brand new Kindle Fire Tablet with VoiceView as the screen reader and using the very-high quality Ivona voices, Sally and Joey. Amazon took the Android operating system and screen reader and reworked them to be easier to use on their devices.
One can use microSD cards for storing one's files so expansion isn't a problem. I've tested it with up to a 200GB microSD card with no issues. It comes with apps one can use to not just listen to one's music, eBooks, and Audible books but to purchase and download them to the tablet. There are many other accessible apps available from the Amazon store which allow one to use it for many purposes such as listening to radio, poscasts, all sorts of entertainment such as NetFlix, and such. Hands Free Alexa functionality in order to speak one's commands instead of using the touch screen for everything. We can also set it up so you can use the Google Play Store for an even larger choice of apps. One can use either a Bluetooth keyboard or connect a USB keyboard with the use of an OTG cable, so typing on it isn't a problem.
The Amazon Fire Tablet has been a very welcome addition to my collection of accessible touch screen devices. I was very impressed with it especially for being so inexpensive. It's a wonderful entertainment device.
