It could be that I didn't wait long enough before pressing control+page down to change pages when I heard Empty page...
Thanks,

Richard,

The PDF version of the OpenBook manual that I had downloaded to my computer appears to be accessible with readable text. The manual is 247 pages long so it does take a couple of minutes before it is readable in Adobe Acrobat Reader.

What is more frustrating, is the PDF version needs to have OCR done on it...

Here is the link to the documentation page where you can get the user guide in txt or pdf as well as the quick start guide.

They do not offer it in html, audio, or DAISY...
