I don't type in the path names, either. The Browse button really does work. 
<smile> I know it can be confusing sometimes if your screen reader doesn't 
say Browse Button or whatever when you land on it, but it really is there, 
and when you click on it, it looks like any other Open dialog box. That's 
how I do it, too. Take care.

I would suggest forgetting about trying to get the path right.  If you have
a my documents folder, why not just move the file there.  Then when you go
to upload it, brows to the My Documents folder and select the file.  If the
file is there, it will show up in the upload box.  I don't type in a path
name when uploading files to Bookshare.  I just browse and select and paste
it in.

If you have already tried this, I apologize.
