Thanks, Cheryl.

I don't remember where I saw it, either on this list or the K1000 list, but I 
swear that I remember someone said that they were able to run either one on the 
same machine.  I wish I could remember who that was.  I really don't expect to 
need it much, but the irritating thing is that I was not even using the 
viavoice with it when I installed K1000.  Apparently, though, K1000 did 
something to something that OpenBook feels it needs to run.  That 
vaguely-worded hypothesis is the best I can come up with at the moment.

  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).

    I can no longer use OpenBook.  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?
