How to use screen readers to download, open and read books from Bookshare.org

This is such great work by National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials; I am so grateful for all the work they have done to provide solutions to the increasing challenges by new versions of software and operating systems.  Kudos to you AIM.  I was having a problem opening a book in Kurzweil 3000 version 12 on a Windows 7 & 8 machines, which left me frustrated… until this morning when I found this site with training videos for several text readers.  I opened the Kurzweil 3000 videos and was so happy to see one that addressed my problem, tried it and it worked!!!
