The Bookshelf Reader from VitalSource has some issues on Windows with screen
readers. They are working on it and we are testing, but I would not
recommend it right now. The older 7.6.4 may be an option. Thorium will only
work with DRM free, so that is not the issue.

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.

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.
