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.
