Jim The demo of Book Wizzard supplied on the Transfer Software Disk will suffice for purposes of using the Book Port. The transfer software allows you to transfer as much, or as little, of the book you want or need. It also allows you to compress speech by a desired percentage, remove pauses over a certain threshold, and converts the book into an mp3 as part of the transfer process. And as incredible as this conceptually sounds, it works allowing you to go to a specific page, etc. You, of course, must be a RFB&D member, have purchased and installeddddddd the key, and have the book on CD at hand. But once transferred to the bp, the book works independently of the CD.
