Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan and today we'll learn how to download digital books from the BARD collection. This workshop is intended for users with low vision. If you use a screen-reading program, be sure to check out our screen-reading version of this workshop. In this series, we learned how to use the BARD website to locate desired books and magazines.
Today we'll take the next step and download our favorite content to our PC computer. Let's say we've logged in to the BARD website and we've located our desired book. The book we plan to download today is Moby-dick or The whale. Below the title, we find the author's name, Herman Melville. Next we have the reading time followed by the name of the reader. Next we see the category or subject of the book.
Ed Haines: Now that you’ve had a chance to learn a bit with us, we’d like to learn more about you; your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley and your relationship to vision loss.
Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don’t worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you’d prefer to talk through these questions, we’re just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
