Hmmm. reinstalling OpenBook, eh?  Maybe I will do that?  I wonder if that would 
be easier, or at least more straightforward than Jake's method, which I haven't 
asked him to give me yet.  If it is as uneventful as K1000's installation, I 
might try it.  I didn't install it originally, as it came on the PC when I got 
it, so that is why I have no experience with the installation for OB.


By the way, the only place I have heard the name Silvara was in the Dragonlance 
Chronicles.  I am curious where you got the name from.  Was it from there?

Thanks, again.

  Hi Evan:

  Oh, my, this list has been very busy lately. I apologize if this question has 
been answered already.

  I use both K1000 and Openbook in the same computer. That happened to me as 
well. I fixed it though. I believe I reinstalled openBook and the problem went 
away. You probably can repair it and should be all set.

    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?
