I think you go into your bookshelf on the BARDmobile app, look for the Braille book you want (this’ll b under th Braille books item in the library tab), and open the book. I haven’t worked with this much, but I think you need to next press m on your display to get to the beginning of your first volume of the book. Don’t hesitate to go to the help file on BARDmobile for more assistance. If you’d like, download the brf file into your computer, open up your focus drive—kinda hard to do but plug in the Focus while, at the same time pressing left pan and power at the same time. After that, navigate to your books in the scratchpad, paste the copied brf in, and make sure to close that and remove Focus with eject/safely remove hardware. After that, note that the brf is there in the books section of scratchpad and read that way. In that way, the display keeps your position/not sure ot would with BARDmobile.

Richard, I was not aware the El Braille had a Rotor, I thought that was a function of devices like smart phones and tablets. I was under the impression that this is something that the El Braille Does not have because it has no view screen. Is there something I don’t know about the El Braille? shalom,

Subject: Re: focus 40 blue and BARD
I would open the file with wordpad and silence the synth so it isn't blabbing on and on while you are trying to read.
That's what I used to do anyway. The one problem with this approach is you won't be able to mark your place unless you actually insert something into the file. I used to write three asterisks and the words stopped reading here. That way when you open the book again you will be able to easily find where you left off reading.
