As some may recall, I am a college professor here in Michigan, and I wrote
an e-mail to the list several weeks ago about my need to access an e-book
copy of a textbook that I am considering for one of my courses. I'd like to
get this book into some sort of usable format for the Stream.
In response to my original e-mail, I got the following reply from a list
member named Jim.
> Hi Tom,

Jim's response makes perfect sense, but I don't know what to do to keep
I have an e-mail here from the book's publisher, with access instructions
and my access code for the e-book, but I am reluctant to give it out.
I have downloaded the book onto my computer here, but can't seem to access
anything, other than chapter titles in the table of contents. I also seem
unable to find out what format the book is in.
I'm using Jaws 12 and Windows XP. I also have the latest firmware version
for my Stream.
I realize that this e-mail continues to be vague, and not very helpful, but
if anyone has worked with e-books before, and has some advice, I'd be very
Thanks as always!
