Qread does fine with Daisy. I do it every day!
I use QRead for pretty much all my eBook reading at this point. I can’t recall at the moment if QRead supports Daisy, but I do know it does support a lot of formats and since it’s an application whose sole purpose is for accessible eBook reading, I’d venture to guess it can handle them.
That said, for Bookshare books, I’ve long since switched my default download preference to ePub format to avoid situations like this to begin with.
Someone on one of these lists also posted something about another eBook reading application called bookworm, but I’m not familiar with it so can’t comment on it beyond that.
I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. The FS Reader 3 program constantly crashes on me, and is really sluggish. Is there a more stable Daisy reader I could use? Or, is there a way to make FS Reader 3 more stable? BTW, the Daisy books I get from Bookshare are “text only;” although for some strange reason they seem to come through with images.
