    Back to Basics - Best Way to Listen on iPhone?

    No worries. Yes, that is correct. Members can log into a Bookshare compatible app such as Voice Dream Reader with their account credentials and this allows them to download through the app. The only slight difference with the Dolphin EasyReader app is that the user would need to create a Dolphin account but could also access it with a Google account.

    Back to Basics - Best Way to Listen on iPhone?

    Yes all of our compatible apps have TTS (text-to-speech) capability built in and would allow the reader to see the words highlighted on the screen while the audio voice is reading them aloud.

    Back to Basics - Best Way to Listen on iPhone?

    Hi Cannon, All of our books have the option to download in MP3 audio format. There are also alternative options if you're interested in exploring compatible apps for the iOS platform.

    monitor reading time?

    Hi Garrett, Unfortunately no our reading tools don't quite yet offer this level of sophisticated information at this time. I know this element has been discussed in the past, I'll touch base with our product development and engineering team to see if this is something we might be able to possibly add in and make available for the overall reading experience.

    The short answer is yes, Dolphin is available on laptops. Having said that though, Bookshare exclusively promotes access to a handful of app reading tool options for use with phone and tablets on the iOS and Android platforms. However, you can visit Dolphin's website for details regarding a 30-day trial of EasyReader for Windows or purchase it directly from them. In the off chance you're still looking for laptop access to other compatible reading tools with Bookshare (other than WebReader), I'd suggest this section of our Reading Tool Wizard tool to help determine the best option for your students.

    Student Access

    Hi Shannon, When the school adds a new student as an organizational member they have the option to create a username and password for the student to access their reading material in a shared Reading List. Public and Private schools can also update the username and password information for any existing organizational members which provides them access to Bookshare's Web Reader (aka as Read Now).

    Web Reader and Organizational Accounts

    Hi Lila, When a school adds a new student as an organizational member they can create a username and password for the student to access their reading material in a shared Reading List which gives them access to Bookshare's Web Reader (aka as Read Now).

    Students with a linked Individual account will receive an email but any organizational members that you create the username and password for won't automatically receive anything. You'll need to notify them of that information. There is a PDF and Word document titled Student Login Form located in our Training and Resources section but please click here to access the direct link.

    Bookshare Training

    Hi Tracy, I wanted to share some information about training that Bookshare provides and hopefully you'll find helpful. We've created a Getting Started wizard for Educators or if you need help selecting reading tool options, you can access our Reading Tool Wizard and last but not least, to access more training and resource options.

    New Sponsor

    Hello, When a Public K-12 school adds a new student as an organizational member they have the option to create a username and password for the student to access their reading material in a shared Reading List. Public and Private schools can also update the username and password information for any existing organizational members which gives them access to Bookshare's Web Reader (aka as Read Now).

    Connecting Single Accounts to School Account

    Hi Jessica, You can either add the teacher to your account using a different email, or they can contact us and request they be removed from the other account they are currently on. Once removed you will be able to add them to your account with the email that is currently in use. Unfortunately, we can't move the Reading Lists over at this time but we're hoping to work out a solution to allow schools to share their Reading Lists with other schools district wide.

    Sibling account

    Hi Jonah, To signup up all three of your children, you'll need to create an account and use a separate email address for each one. Unfortunately, our system wasn't designed to maintain family accounts and at this time it's not something we're able to offer but we have discussed the idea and I hope to see it available as an option to new and existing members in the future.

    Bookshare "download failed" on dolphin easy reader

    The feedback I've received is that the ePub format issue isn't quite resolved just yet but is slated for the week of the 19th. For now, you should be able to side load the title as a workaround solution by first downloading the title on the website and then logging into the app and essentially downloading again. I tried this for the title mentioned above and it seems to have resolved the issue for now.

    Bookshare "download failed" on dolphin easy reader

    Hi Kristen, I attempted to download it myself and ran into the same issue. I've reached out to our Product Manager for help looking into the issue. He's going to try downloading the title from our API. I'll provide you with an update once I have more information to share.
