[access-uk] Re: ePub Format

Can I just add to this that for protected EPUBS you'll need something
like Adobe Digital Editions 1.8 preview
(http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/digitaleditions1-8/).

Hi.
There are many ways to access Epubs in windows. To convert them, try
Calibre http://calibre-ebook.com/ Note that though Calibre is not itself
accessible, at least with Jaws, the ebook-convert command line tool is
quite easily usable
http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/cli/ebook-convert.html
You can also read the Epub directly with several packages, the one that
pops first to mind is http://q-continuum.net/qread/ and there are some
plug-ins for Firefox which will also read them
http://www.epubread.com/en/ Keep in mind that Epub files are just zip
files, if you add the .zip extension, then go into the file with the zip
folders function of windows, or extract the zip file with your favourite
zip utility, you will be able to read the HTML files with your browser
like any other HTML file.
I hope that's of use.
Aman
