msreader if you use windows and a sound card is quite good.  The book is
well structured so if you can take advantage of the latest acrobat
reader, you can also use it there.  I too however in the spirit of
better coverage and more universal access would like to see the book
made available in a form such as html.  I'll be happy to make a tape and
someone can put it on cd of the msreader voice reading the book.

How about offering the eBook in a more accessible format? eBooks aren't
and PDF only marginally better for us blind types.
