Unique Kindle 2 button question?
Does anyone know a way to make the next page button the Kindle 2 more sensitive (easier to press)?
Please let me explain.
I am disabled and only have extremely limited use of my left thumb. I cannot use my arms or hands in any way. I tried using the Kindle 1 several months ago and was pleased to discover that if propped up properly and my thumb placed on the next page I could press the button. This was a great discovery, since I will now be able to read without having to ask someone to continually flipped the page.
I waited for the Kindle 2 to be released before I purchased one for myself. I was waiting for is some of the features to be updated. Like I like the idea of text to speech for when hand (thumb) gets tired and I need a break. I know it's not great, but for someone like me it's a helpful feature. Also I like the fact that it now has a PDF reader. I can transfer other documents I need to read to the newer Kindle.
So, I recently purchased the Kindle 2 and was sad to discover that they changed the next page button and I could no longer press it. I did some research on the Internet and found that on the original kindle the used outward pressing button and on the Kindle 2 they used an inward pressing button. For most people you would not realize the difference, but for me it makes a whole world of difference. Does anyone have any idea on how to make the next page button on the Kindle 2 more sensitive? Or, any suggestions on where else I can look or who else I could ask?
I tried contacting Amazon, but that was useless. Worst case scenario, I will just buy the original kindle on eBay, but if I could make the Kindle 2 work that would be ideal. I have looked at different guides to taking apart the new kindle, but I'm not sure what would help make the button press more easily.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
