Hi Everyone,

My student is frustrated because there is no bookmark feature. So, every time she logs out of her bookshare/book, she loses her place in the book. Is there a bookmark feature available that I'm not seeing? She's using a Windows laptop at home.

Thank you!

Hello Leslie,

Unfortunately, the Bookshare Web Reader does not have a built in bookmarking feature at this time. Many members use the table of contents button to help them navigate back to the portion of the book that they were last reading. If your student is willing to try a different reading program, Thorium is a free EPUB reader available in the Microsoft app store, which has a bookmarking feature and text to speech audio similar to the Web Reader. Your student can download Bookshare books in the EPUB file format and read them in the Thorium program. You can learn more about Thorium here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/thorium-reader/9nfzp1g7m2sc?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
