    I am using the Bookshare Reader. I am having trouble adding books to my Reader. I go to a preferred book in my history and assume that it is highlighted. I start tabbing and cannot hear “add book” I am using Jaws 22. I did call some at Benetech but never received a call back. What am I doing wrong?
    My phone number is 818-620-2200. I think I need a walk through. I am reading a book that my sighted friend added to Alexa Amazon.
