Hi,

Is it possible to pause and continue where one left off when listening to a textbook?  If so, how?

Hi,

It will depend on the tool...

If the student opens the book with the Web Reader and uses the free Read&Write for Google Chrome text-to-speech tool, it has a pause button.

As Michelle pointed out it would depend on the reading tool used. If using an app you are able to play and pause.

If you are using the Web Reader(Read Now) you can play and pause also. The play button will also function as the pause button.

Why would the pause /play button not work?. The cursor keeps going to top of chapter when student is listening. He and I are getting very frustrated.

Hello Julie,

Unfortunately, there could be a few different issues causing that issue. I would highly recommend calling our Technical Support team so they can help diagnose the issue further. You can locate our phone number and hours of operation at the bottom of the Help Center page: https://www.bookshare.org/cms/help-center
