Is Read:OutLoud compatible with Mac OS X Mavericks?
No. Read:OutLoud Bookshare Edition is not currently compatible with the new Mac OS X Mavericks (version 10.9).
To read Bookshare books on Mac computers with this version, please try one of these alternatives:
Use Bookshare Web Reader.
- To use Bookshare’s free Web Reader, you must have an Individual Membership.[link to how to set up an IM]
- If you are a sponsor of an Organizational Membership, get your student an Individual Membership or watch this short tutorial.
Read in your Internet browser with VoiceOver. This will allow you to download a Bookshare book and read with your computer’s built-in text-to-speech program. However, you will not have word highlighting.
Purchase a commercially available reading tool that is compatible with Mac OS X Mavericks (version 10.9), such as the commercial edition of Read:OutLoud 6. Visit our Reading Tools page to learn about other available tools.
Note: We are currently working on a longer-term solution for Mac OS X Mavericks (version 10.9) users. Please stay tuned.
