[Athen] Best EPUB reader for JAWS

I'm not overly familiar with Thorium but I'd also ask if the problems are happening across different EPUBs? There isn't quite DRMs for EPUBs but I've run into a few that tried some tricks to do things like prevent copying text.

Hi Jeremy,

Oh no! I wonder if he needs to uninstall and reinstall Thorium?

Another option that I like is VitalSource Bookshelf. Epubs can be sideloaded into Bookshelf.<https://support.vitalsource.com/hc/en-us/articles/203256896-Sideloading-EPUBs-with-Bookshelf>

Hi folks,

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a Windows EPUB reader that gets along nicely with JAWS?

I referred a student to Thorium and it was working well for him for a while. Now he's having trouble navigating through files and is unable to copy and paste from files. He could do both in the same files just a few weeks ago.
