Hi Shelley, I also have a BookSense using WinndowsXP.  The only number I
have for tech support is not toll free: 512-837-2000.  The person I talked
to last February was Jenny Axler in tech suupport. You might call
information and see if there is a toll free number for Hims, INC.

The website is: www.hims-inc.com

Hope this helps.

Mike

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Booksense and Windows 7 question

 

Hi everyone,

 

I am wondering if someone might be able to help me.

 

I am trying to teach a student to extract a zip folder and place it into a
new folder created on the Booksense under daisy and Bookshare.

 

However we ran into a problem, I am hoping that the Booksense Buddy will
make it work better, but...  When we extracted the files, Windows informed
us that files with those names already existed and whether we wished to copy
the files or ignore them.  We tried both methods and the computer would
freeze the process somewhere around 17% through the process.

 

We also tried deleting the files and folders completely, and redownloading
the book, and copying the files the old fashioned way, by opening the zipped
folder, selecting all the files, copying the files, going to the Bookshare
folder on the Booksense and creating a new folder, and titling it, then
pasting the copied files there.  No luck.

 

I am kind of out of ideas.

 

My mother who has Windows 7 also has this problem, and doesn't know the
answer though for her it isn't a screen reader or a booksense related issue.

 

What should I do?

 

I am taking my netbook with me to the client's house, as I have XP and know
it works great on that platform.

 

Me thinks I am going to hold onto XP as long as I can I think.

 

Help!
