Hi Joan Ann, I use BorrowBox on my iPhone and PC. I use it on the PC with NVDA.
Mostly I use the iPhone for reading books with BorrowBox. I read both e-books
and audiobooks with the iPhone. I find that borrow box works well with
voice-over most of the time. One area where BorrowBox could be improved is in
browsing for new books . If you try to browse by category or genre, it is not
as simple as it could be because it is difficult to get a full list of
categories or genres. When you browse in this mode it shows you a category
followed by the first five are six books in that category and then the next
category. This makes it a bit slow to browse. However you can also search for a
book by title or author. Once downloaded I find it easy to read the books with
BorrowBox. Hope that helps a bit.

I enjoy reading and am interested to know the different ways people access
audio books and the devices you use to read them.
I am a member of audible and get 1 book a month. I listen to them on the
IPhone or on the Amazon Echo Dot. I find the audible app uses up the battery
on my phone quite quickly.
I also get Kindle books from Amazon and read them using the Kindle app on
the IPhone. Listening to VoiceOver reading a book takes a bit of getting
used to but it is fantastic to have access to a wide range of books and not
to have to wait for them to be released in audio.
I know that it is also possible to get audio books from your local library
using Borrowbox but I have never used this service so any information would
