As Tyler says, there's probably no way you'll get a full refund. You should
be able to return it, but in cases where you're buying a relatively
expensive piece of electronic equipment, you definitely need to do the
research. I'm pretty sure Amazon actually got sued over Kindle accessibility
issues. There is a way to make it accessible, but from what I have read, the
accessibility is not very good. Also, only select titles have accessibility
enabled on them. Some publishers are still resistent to activating that
option as they think it will take away from sales of audio books.

First, this is something you really really need to check before you buy
it. There is a lot of stuff that is not accessible.
Second, there is a mode that will make it read, but I don't know exactly
how well it works. I think Amazon has a return policy and you can send
it back, you might take a cost hit though. This is to be expected.
