Hi Christine,
I've run into this issue as a student. My school also has adobe digital 
editions books.
To my knowledge they are not accessible with a screen reader including voice 

I wish that would change as I see many ebooks I want to access. Its even 
more a barrier to access the ebook versus regular book; with regular books, 
I use a reader but ebooks, I not only need the reader but a device with 
internet access and a tech savvy reader who can access it.
Very frustrating.

Hi All,
  Our school's library has epub books from Ebsco which require either Adobe 
Digital Additions or something like BlueFire if wanting to read on an 
iDevice. Has anyone here had any success using either JAWS with ADA or VO 
with BF. I can get JAWS and VO to read nothing from them. Any suggestions 
would be welcome and very appreciated!
Have a wonderful rest of the day!
