Bookshare and Mac
My Mac seems to no longer recognize Bookshare books in Pub format since the app changed from iBooks to Books. when opening a downloaded book from Bookshare, Mac sends me an error message stating 'this book cannot be opened - the file is corrupt'. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts as to what's going on here?
Till the problem is solved, you may want to read such books online like a web page. Just change the preferences.
maybe try changing the format 2 say DAISY format. I don't know if Books will support DAISY format, or if there's any DAISY player apps 4 the mac.
I'd also try & contact bookshare & see what they have 2 say.
thanks for the idea of reading on the web - this may be my best option. Generally I read Bookshare books on my phone using EasyReader. I would lke to have the same book available on my Mac and using Bookshare web reader may be my choice.
Thank you for the idea. I don't know either which formats Books supports. Bookshare advised me to contact Apple re: this matter. I decided to come to Applevis before trying that route.
I use Speech Central for both mac and iOS it wokrs good with voiceover for the most part .
Thanks for sharing your experience with Speech Central. I'm going to look into this app to see whether it works for me as well.
