I too am a member of Audio Book Ministries (Tape Ministries
Northwest) and can not manage to download a book. I have my password
and about a year ago the director talked me through the process
and I got a book or two. But I have not ever been able to do it
on my own. I think the site is accessible, but difficult to
navigate and find the right buttons. I suggest you call Audio
Books and ask for help. Although the director is currently out
on medical leave, as you know, I think there is at least one
board member who is blind and uses JAWS. Perhaps you can get
help from him/her. And if you do---LET ME KNOW HOW YOU DID IT!
If you contact me off list, we can see if we can figure it
and put Audio Book Ministry in the subject line, please, so I
don't delete it.
And as I suppose you know, you can request the library to
send the book on a cartridge but I too would prefer to download
it on my own.

Rick already posted this question and
there were at least three replies.
I found the download link just fine using
Jaws and Firefox.
The issue is you cannot download the book
unless you are sign up as a Patron.
the web say it is
a lending library and you have to fill out a
application and you order the book and they send it to
you and when you read the book you send it book that’s
how I understand it but I can be wrong

Re: Using JAWS to Download a Book from a
Particular Web Site
figure it out at all! Obviously, the site is
Are any of
you familiar with Audio Book Ministries, also known as
Tape Ministries for the Blind? They have an online
accessible library from which their books can be
downloaded, but doing it using JAWS is very hard.
Their address is:
the employee they have who is knowledgeable about
screen readers and about JAWS is on medical leave and
they don’t know when he will be back again. So if any
of you are familiar with this particular web site and
maybe, by chance, might have downloaded a book from
it, would you please be so kind as to access it and
figure out how it can be done using JAWS? You don’t
have to sign in to do this—at least not for the help I
am asking for. Just go to the web page and find the
“Online Library Access,” link and hit the Enter key.
Then if you just find any book, try to figure out how
to get to the page where the book can be downloaded.
When you get to the page that has the book
description, you’ll see there is no direct link to
download the book. There is a “downloads,” link but
it will not take you to the “download,” page for the
book you wish to download. Instead, it takes you to
the page where there are various things that can be
downloaded, such as the AudioBook Ministries tax
summary and various other things not at all related to
the book you wish to download. When you find a book,
just tell me how to use JAWS to get to the book’s
any help you can give.
