Hi Norm,

As someone else here mentioned, Adobe Digital Editions works quite well with screen readers when reading ePub documents. You can usually press shift + tab from the content of the document and you will be placed in a table of contents. You can open the table of contents with the right arrow, navigate to the chapter/section you want, press enter, and then tab back into the content of the document, and you will be placed at the location you chose in the table of contents.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [Athen] question on accessiblewindows application to read epub

Years ago, I used AMIS to read DAISY books on my PC. i had mistakenly
assumed by now it would be upgraded to handle EPUB but apparently not.
I know of windows software READHEAR by GH LLC and EasyReader by Dolphin
but neiter is free for windows. (EasyReader has free apps for smart
phones but so far as I understand not for windows.
Can someone recomment a windows application that works OK with screen
readers and will handle EPUB content?

It seems to me it must be there but that I missed it somehow.
