I see why downloading this book could be a definite challenge. The file was over 30 MB and it even took forever for the dialog asking whether to save or open to display. I had one failed attempt because the upload capacity of my DSL connection was being used. It's annoying that it should so badly interfere with a download, but maybe that is the fault of my stupid router not my DSL service. I haven't opened the zip file yet, but i will be interested to see exactly what all is in there. It evidently contains all the images of the scan even though it is a DOC file.

Hi Sarah,
I think I tried twice to download the book, but either the BookShare system was having problems at the time or something on my end was, because I never got it downloaded, but it made its way to my step 2 page. As I recall it needs some type of verification before making it into the collection.
I am far from a C++ expert, but I was hoping to have a look at it someday, just never got back around to it. And right now I don't have the energy. I'll be playing catch up for the next week or so after a family emergency last week, and by the time I have time for it.....well, go ahead and give it a look through and do the best you can...


It definitely would be cool to program something useful when I eventually get a new phone!

Best,
Jake

Jake, and anyone else who might know something about the book for developing C++ programs for Nokia phones, I'd like to know if I should take the book and look at it. Any information about it would be useful. I don't propose to edit it, but I will take it and check it for acceptance by the bookshare standards. My husband said he would look the book over a little to judge whether it looks usable or whether it is a mess. I can do some checking too, but I am no expert in C++ and checking it with speech is something I consider a bit of a nightmare anyway. If someone else wants to do the job that's fine, but I don't want it to wait much longer since it has been arround since March. Someone can always submit a better copy later if that becomes possible.
