NIMAC FORMAT

Hi Donna,

Absolutely, we have a few options for NIMAC books on Chromebooks.  First and the most popular by far is our Web Reader, the student logs into Bookshare and simply selects the "Read Now" link found next to the book.  It opens right up in their browser and they can read from there. 

Some of the NIMAC books are too complicated for our Web Reader to handle, these would need another full fledged reading tool to access.  I personally recommend Capti Voice which is available with a ton of great features for a small monthly subscription.  https://www.captivoice.com

Under the student's recent books next to the downloaded textbook (World History by Ellis and Esler) it says " This book is not available in Web reader. You can download it in another format." 

Does this mean the book is too complicated for Web reader and that my next option is to purchase and use captivoice?

Hi Donna,

Yes, unfortunately that message does indicate when a particular book is too complicated for Web Reader to handle and the best option in that scenario would be to access another reading tool such as Capti Voice if you'd like to purchase it so you can read the book.
