Woohoo! I examined your instructions meticulously  and tried to apply  them
to the letter. My system seems to be slightly different so It was not  possible
to adhere to the exact letter, but it was sufficient. First I tried  typing a
dot and rtf on the end of the path I told you about in the last message  and
it did not work, but after following your directions it appears that the  same
thing came up. I don't know why typing rtf did not work and properly using
the browse feature to enter the same letters did work, but it worked! I have
now  validated my first book and uploaded it for administrator approval. That
was so  much fun that if it were not so late and if I were not so tired I would
start  another one right now. In a message dated 7/18/2008 8:56:13 P.M.

Hi Roger and welcome to the list.
Okay, please give us more information when you tell us about a problem.  You
said you were using jaws, which version? It could make a difference. It  might
help if we knew what operating system you are using, windows/xp, vista,  95,
98...

The field you are trying to fill in probably causes more problems for  more
people.

But, once you get used to it, you will breeze through this part of the

Before you can tell bookshare to accept a book you need to tell it where  the
book is on your system. In the description which follows, I may not have  all
the fields and buttons named correctly. I am going from memory, and memory
is not my best asset.

We'll use as an example a book  I uploaded yesterday. The book is  titled
"magic for beginners". But, I wound up with several versions of this  book on
my
computer, so I had to tell the bookshare computer exactly which one  I wanted

It turns out that the book I wanted to upload is called "C:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Kurzweil Educational Systems\in
progress\BSO_Magic_for_Beginners_f1.rtf".

If I tried to type that I'd never get a good upload. I'm not that good a
typist.

Before the "accept" button, there are two fields. The first is an edit  field
where the brave at heart can type the complete path to where their book  is.
If you do type the name in this field then skip the next field which is a
"browse" button.

However, most of us, I suspect, prefer to let our computers tell  bookshare's
computer where the book is, so we hit the browse button. This  opens up
another window which is the same kind of dialog you use when you  open a file.
It has a file-name, a file-type, an open button, a cancel button, and,
finally, the fields that let you find the folder containing the book.

In the first "look in" field, I would first search for the c drive.   When
this is highlighted, I would tab to the next field (I forget what it is
exactly
called), but it's another "look in" field. Depending on which  operating
system you use, you may have two buttons between these fields. If  so, just
ignore
them.
In the second field your up and down arros will tell you which folders  you
are looking at. In my case, I want to go to the "documents and settings"  and
hit enter. This will bring up a list of all the files in "documents and
settings". I am looking for the "administrator" folder. I find it and hit
enter on
it. Then I'm looking for the "my documents" folder, and so on and so  on,
until I go to the last folder needed, which is the "in progress" folder. I  hit
enter on that name, and arrow down to the "BSO_Magic_for_Beginners_f1.rtf"
file. If I tab once it should take me to the file-name field which is filled
in
with the "BSO_Magic_for_Beginners_f1.rtf".

So, I tab over to the open button and hit enter. This makes the screen go
away and takes you back to where you were originally. However, that edit field
where only the true-in-spirit dare type a file-name is now filled in with your
file name, complete with all the preceeding folders etc.

So, skip down to the "accept" button and hit enter.

Give the two computers about five minutes to converse. As the manual says
you should get a thank you screen. Check out the various fields and make sure
the correct fields and checkboxes are correct.

Then hit the "accept" button once more and your book will be set for

Sorry about the long description, but I simply tried to tell you what I
would have wanted to know when I started out.

If you have further questions, let us know.

I am also using JAWS. I did not know about insert escape in a situation  like
that, Anyway I have now just started over. Let me describe exactly what  I
typed into the file field. The title of the book is Black and White. I  think
that what I am supposed to type in is Black_And_White_f1. Does that  look like
it is correct? In a message dated 7/18/2008 7:47:25 P.M. Pacific  Daylight

What  screen reader are you using.

I use jaws so will press insert   escape  and then see if the page is
silent....if it is I wait and  give it time to upload.
Then the second screen appears asking about the  quality of the book and has
the category check boxes.
and other  info.

Then you press accept again at the bottom of that page and  wait to get the
thank you page.

As far as I know  I did everything you said up until choosing accept. When I
did that I  did not go to another screen. I just sat there. In a message dated
