To play background audio (MP3 files) that you have transferred to your Kindle, follow the steps below:

  1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the “Home” button.
  2. Press the “Menu” button.
  3. Move the 5-way down until “Experimental” is underlined and press the 5-way to select it.
  4. Move the 5-way down until “Play MP3” is underlined and press down to select it.

The songs are played in order, by the date you added them to your Kindle. You can adjust the volume of the music using the volume controls on the right side of your Kindle. You can continue to listen to the audio while reading content; the background audio continues to play unless you open an audio book, turn on text-to-speech, all of the files have been played, or if you stop the playback as indicated below.

To turn off background audio:

  1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the “Home” button.
  2. Press the “Menu” button.
  3. Move the 5-way down until “Experimental” is underlined. Press the 5-way to select.
  4. Move the 5-way down until “Play MP3” is underlined. Press the 5-way to select.

Tip: You can also play or stop background audio by holding down the ALT key and pressing the space bar. You can forward to the next track by holding down the ALT key and pressing the ‘F’ key.

Have you seen the Amazon Kindle Commercial?

Posted by admin on November 24, 2009

[tweetmeme] Take a look at our new Kindle TV commercial, airing on national television. It was the winning video in the Your Amazon Ad Contest held this past summer. The creative directors are Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths of Los Angeles and the star and singer/songwriter in the spot is actress Annie Little.

We received an e-mail about the contest two weeks after Ithyle and I bought Kindles; I’m stupid for my Kindle…I love it,” said Kohler. “We were in the airport and everyone was asking about it, so, on a plane from Japan to Thailand we brainstormed ideas and sketched out little stories that our character could fall into following different literary genres. We scribbled out pictures on napkins and made a flipbook, putting the little scenes in different orders.

Seen on: Amazon.
