Hi Evan and list. I've had the same problem for the last year. I can't access openbook 5.0 for the sole purpose of converting scanned text/reference works in ark format to rtf for personal library. I've been using kurzweil for a couple years now. -- Of course I can't scan now because we burned out the motor of our Epson 4490. Isn't technology great (she said sarcastically).

Despite the fact that I was using JAWS with it, and not its unstable Viavoice, whenever I open it now, I get a viavol.exe error, and OpenBook will not talk to me with JAWS. What a hunk o' junk! I know that K1000 is using Viavoice. I set it up that way to read, because I didn't want to read with Neospeech. I wanted to scan a couple of pages in this book I was refering to in which I lost all the em dashes to see what it would do with the same material. While I expect to use K1000 from now on, OpenBook was paid for, and I don't think it is unreasonable to expect to be able to access it whenever I want it. Anybody got any advice?
