HERE’S WHY: The words and music are presented as sheet music, but each line is a separate image. If I enlarge the first line of words and music so I can read them in Kindle on my iPad mini, when I get to the end of the line I must then close that image and go through the process of enlarging the next line. I find that starting and stopping like that creates frustration and eliminates the pleasure of singing the hymn. I tried enlarging the font, which, predictably, did not affect the images containing sheet music.
AS A CUMBERSOME WORK-AROUND, I just now spent some time fiddling with options for ZOOM under ACCESSIBILITY, which is in GENERAL in the SETTINGS app on the iOS 11.2.0. Within the Kindle app, I switched to one-column view, and then with the ZOOM control, I RESIZED THE LENS to include all images of the desired sheet music, and adjusted magnification accordingly. This way I can comfortably sing the entire hymn without interruption. HOWEVER, since I am not visually impaired, I do not need the “zoomer” active ALL the time, so I will need to turn it on in settings before I use the digital hymnal, and then turn it off again afterward. Not a terribly huge deal, I think, but I feel such gyrations shouldn’t be necessary for someone with normal vision, and it may become more trouble to me than it’s worth. They can do better. I’ll try the zoomer for a while to see what I think of it.
What blew me away was that I discovered that no less than 10 of these famous hymn writers were still alive when I was alive--here is a list:
F.M Lehman--The love of God-died 1953
Haldor Lillenas--Wonderful grace of Jesus--died 1959
Rhea Miller--I,d rather have Jesus--died 1966
Helen Lemmel--Turn your eyes upon Jesus--died 1961
Thomas Chisholm--Great is thy faithfulness--died 1960
Thomas Dorsey--Precious Lord take my hand--died 1993
Alfred Ackley--He lives--died 1960
Stuart Hamblen--it is no secret--died 1989
Audrey Mieir--His name is wonderful--died 1996
George Bennard-The old rugged cross--died 1958
East to read print and special paper makes this one great book.
