Hello Nan: The Librarian of Congress indicates that visually impaired persons can use decryption software to make e-books readable by their computers. So you can go to Google and search for "decrypt pdf" or "remove restrictions pdf" and you will find links to inexpensive software to allow you into the pdf book. If that fails send me the pdf, I'll unlock it and send it back. This may take several days.

I will look into PDF2Word.. I can't afford Jurzweil. Thanks! -- Cordially, Nan Hawthorne www.nanhawthorne.com Historical fiction blogs, books, and a Celtic music radio show!
