Thank you for the information, Allison. This is extremely
upsetting news for those of us who are BrailleNote users and who
rely on Bookshare for professional as well as personal reading
material, and I'm saddened and surprised to hear that Bookshare
would proceed with an update that will render the website
unusable to such a significant portion of those who have
heretofore benefited from its services. Does anyone know to whom
I might write with concerns?

The updated Bookshare website is set to launch next week. While
there are many improvements that will help our members, we are
aware of potential bugs with select partner technologies.
The BrailleNote will not be able to download books directly from
Bookshare. We recommend that you download books from Bookshare
prior to our planned website downtime on Monday, October 27 at
5PM Pacific Time. Afterwards, you can continue to read Bookshare
books by downloading from a separate device like a computer and
transfer them to your BrailleNote.
HumanWare has been notified about this issue, and we are working
with them to find a solution to use our updated website. Thank
you for your patience.
