Hi Wink,

Ken and I presented at the CSUN last week. We don't have any comprehensive paper to answer all your questions but I guess our presentation at CSUN would provide answers to some of your questions. Maybe Ken and I can coordinate with Norm and present it at EASI for those who couldn't come to CSUN/our session.
I will send you the presentation offline.

Subject: [Athen] Online eBook Accessibility

Hi out there in ATHEN-Land,

Anyone have any first-hand experience with the use of screen readers or TTS readers with online textbook sources such as:
- Chegg
- CourseSmart
- GooglePlay-
- Kindle
- Kno
- Vital Source

Publisher denied a PDF file and suggested the student purchase one of the electronic versions of the requested book from the sources (above). Student's preference is PDF, but if he can get the file to read aloud, he may be OK. I have asked him for his preference.

What experience do any of you have in the TTS capabilities on any of those e-book sources listed?

Let me know!

Thanks in advance for your collective knowledge.
