HI Denise, Unfortunately, I don't think the "look inside the book" is accessible for a blind person using a screen reader. I could be wrong, but I've never been able to make that work. The pages that you see are pictures of the pages and pictures do not seem to be readable with a screen reader because they're pictures and not straight text on the page. Some of our more techy computer users may have found a way to use this feature though. I am not a geek. I only know what I know. Sorry, I'm not lori, but. . .

There is the ability to search the contents of the book and find certain passages, and then the link will bring up the scanned page. So, I keep my Word document open, and another window with Amazon and reference their scanned pages. I don't know if all titles have all scanned pages, but the book I'm working on now does. I checked and they do have your version of "Edith's Diary" here http://www.amazon.com/Ediths-Diary-Highsmith-Patricia/dp/0871132966/ref=sr_1 _1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233878684&sr=8-1 For example, if I'm on page 68 and I'm not sure if the man's last name is "Hoover" or "Hooker", I'll click on "search this book" and find another word on that page that isn't necessarily common, like "alcove". I will then get a list of every page that has "alcove" on it. I click on the link for page 68 and I can see that the sentence is "...and Mr. Hoover visited the alcove every year since his father died." I then correct my document to be Hoover instead of H? or whatever it was. So far, I've been at this for one day, but it's working out brilliantly! If you actually click the link to search the book you do not need to log in. If you want to follow the links further to access the scanned pages, you do need to login to Amazon.com (you will prompted). Let me know if you have questions. I may not have explained it well enough:-) I hope this helps!

Part way through the book, I realized that there are chapters identified by Arabic numerals. However, the chapter numbers did not scan until halfway through the book, and even after that point, some of them are missing. Can anyone get a copy of the book and email me a list of the chapter numbers and page number for the beginning of each chapter? This edition of the book has 317 pages; its ISBN is 0-87113-296-6. This is quite a good book, so I hope someone can help. Thanks.
