We use it for most of our textbooks at Full Sail University. It's the most advanced eBook software in the world.

Don't use this program. Its slow and useless. Buy the hard copy. Poor program

This program is horrid. Installation instructions on site recommend a restart to get the audio working correctly, installer makes no mention of this. Starting a reading crashed every open java program. Pausing made the reading stop entirely, and I have been unable to get it working again. I don't know who wrote this program, but perhaps their position within the company should be reevaluated.

My only issue is that I can't scroll with the keypad. When doing so it is very erratic. This is a big enough issue that I am now looking for an alternative

Windows version: Horrible, slow and erratic scrolling. Can't rotate view for diagrams printed sideways. Looking for an alternative.
