Congratulations Roger! I admire your perseverance. I well remember how daunting
this task was when I first started out; in fact, every time I know my book has
been accepted, I still breathe a sigh of relief. Jill

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. Pacific Daylight Time,

Hi Roger and welcome to the list.
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 to

It turns out that the book I wanted to upload is called "C:\Documents and
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 Time,

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.
