Do you have access to a copy of Read&Write? It may work better in this situation than K3000. Then again, maybe not. <grin> It may be worth a try since R&W is not really difficult to learn as far as the reading tools go.

Subject: [Athen] Question about Aspen Law StudyDesk Software

Good afternoon!

I need your advice. I work with a law student who uses Kurzweil 3000. He wants to review some study guides access to which he purchased when he bought the textbooks.

These study guides are only readable using proprietary software made by the company, Aspen Law.

I have downloaded the software (StudyDesk it is called) as well as the 5 study guides. And I am able to read these using Window-Eyes. However, I cannot run a virtual print to render them KESI documents.

I would like to find a way to make these guides accessible to the student but am not sure how or even whether this is possible. The most I can copy and paste at a time is about a page and a half and this is far too labor intensive given that the total number of pages is going to be roughly 1,000 (this would be quite a lot of copying and pasting!).

The URL for the company that makes the "StudyDesk" software and these guides is: www.aspenlaw.com<http://www.aspenlaw.com/>

Please let me know if you have any suggestions or if you have worked through a similar problem.

Thank you!!!
