It's probably going to be one of the Adobe formats.  Microsoft's eBooks or .lit 
files were a royal pain in the backside for me and I never got them to work.  
Mobipocket worked for me but you kept having to use the jaws cursor to read a 
page and you have to actually turn the page (probably set up that way for 
sighted people to get the illusion of actually turning pages in a paperback or 
something) so, you can't just hit Say All and expect Jaws to keep reading on 
down the page.  With Adobe, you stand a greater chance of just being able to 
have the file accessible and read it all the way through with Jaws or, at 
least, the read out loud feature in Adobe.  Too bad there's not a Daisy 
converter out there that would turn Adobe books into Daisy or all the other 
formats for that matter.
