    TEACHER ACCESS

    Thank you for the reply/answer. Is there a way to preview books myself? I would like to view books before assigning a book, but can't figure out how to read the book myself? Thank you.

    If you are using a laptop/computer the Web Reader is a great option. If you are using a mobile device you are going to want to download a compatible app. Once you click on the Read Now option the book will start processing, this can take a few minutes. If the issue persists feel free to contact our Bookshare technical support team for further assistance. https://www.bookshare.org/contactUs

    Reading List District Wide

    Hi, I want to create a reaching list for each grade level in my school district and for Middle and High School summer reading, so teachers will only need to join my list, then assign to their specific students. Do I click "share with all members", so the sponsor can "see" my list to then assign to a student?

    Bookmarks in Webreader

    I agree, having bookmarks would be very helpful and it is one of the most common requests I receive from my students.

    Student access to reading lists

    How do my students access the reading lists that I subscribe them to on the master website using Read2Go App? I have added my students to reading lists, but they still have to look for individual books. They don't get to browse the titles in the reading lists. Any suggestion for how I fix this?

    Reading Cartoon based book

    My student cannot get the Book2Go app to read the book DogMan. I think it might be due to the fact that it is a graphic novel style book with cartoon style boxes with drawings and writing mixed. Does anyone know how to get the print read by the voiceover? Thanks

    Reading books with images

    I am an alternate media specialist in Cupertino, and I want to add some information about images in bookshare books. First, if you need to determine if a book has images, even if you have no sight, see if it is available as Daisy with images, like Nick said. Download it if it is, and there will be a folder labeled "images" under the daisy folder with the book. You need to do this on a Windows PC or Mac, this won't work within an app. Anyway, if there is, you can open the images folder and look at the raw images. If you can't see, you can print a few sample ones for another person to look at for you. So it's pretty easy to tell if the book has lots, or just a couple of pictures. If you need to practice with a book chock full of images, try the publisher quality "for dummies" series .. for example both knitting for dummies and chrochetting for dummies have over 900 images. Now, I know that crafting books are not textbooks, but it works well for practicing with a book that is known to have many images. With textbooks, many publishers don't give bookshare the images, but with crafting books, I've found they often do. You can also look at the raw images in an epub book even if you are blind. Epub is just a zip file. What I do is copy the epub to a work directory. Then I rename it with a .zip extension. Then I unzip it and look for an images directory. In there are all the raw images, which can be magnified, printed or dealt with any way you need to. I hope this helps. --Debee

    Student Dashboard Question

    I just saw the Student Dashboard. When it shows a number of books "downloaded", what does that mean? Does it count books that have been opened with the Web Browser? Does it show a count for students with an Individual account? Thanks in advance! Michelle Thomas Assistive Technology Specialist Adams 12 Five Star Schools Thornton, CO
  22. I wanted to download the new book "Fear" by Bob Woodward about the President. I get this error message "This is a restricted title. Either it is not available for download in your region, or your address information is incomplete.". I don't understand. Bookshare has all of my correct information and I am located in the USA. Does anyone know what the exact restrictions are that are set for this book so that I can know why I do not qualify to download it? Thank you very much. Linda

    Hi Julie, I'll will reach out directly so that I can answer this question for you.
  25. Hi Christina, Unfortunately Bookshare is not able to support its own interface on that device. For this we generally recommend using Go Read. You will want to download this from the Google Play Store. If you would like to follow the link below this will take you directly to the Go Read article on our website: https://www.bookshare.org/cms/help-center/how-do-i-install-and-use-go-read
