Hi, Mickey. Your guess is right that you can still use the unpack tool
for books on your hard drive. I really like the idea of switching to
zip files when the new site comes out because zip files work on so
many different kinds of computers and with lots of programs. I think
it'll be easier for our new members, and I think we old-timers will
come to like it better too. One thing that's cool about zips is that
if you use a tool like Winzip, you can select several zip files and
tell Winzip to extract them all at once into a folder. It'll prompt
you for your Bookshare password. Other than that, it does the heavy
lifting. Also, for those that use Kurzweil, Kurzweil will treat our
downloaded zip files like folders. We don't even have to extract the
files first. It just asks for the Bookshare password and opens the zip
file. Openbook may do this as well. I haven't tried it.
