Unity Reader supports text-to-speech and other accessibility options.
Before you install the Unity Reader on Windows, prepare your system.
You need administrator privileges on your computer to install Java 1.6. If you do not have administrator privileges, contact your IT administrator.
Note: If you are planning on using Internet Explorer 8, update your Java installation to the latest release. During testing, Unity Reader installation was successful with Java 1.6.13 but not with some earlier versions of Java.
Important: It might take about 20 seconds for the ebrary Unity Reader to open and display the first document. If you click your document again, another reader window opens.
If you use assistive technologies such as screen readers, ebrary offers accessibility mode for easy of navigation. In accessibility mode, some display pages show more or less detail and check boxes have been adjusted for ease of use.
Accessibility mode results in a number of changes that are not explicitly highlighted in this Help system. Changes to advanced search, the Search page, and the Bookshelf are most noticeable.
Note If you need a screen reader enabled for ebrary QuickView, see your librarian. See Enabling the Screen Reader for additional information.
The Search page has been organized for easy navigation. Instead of buttons for adding search fields, it offers the following preset fields:
The bookshelf contains a list of numbered folders. You can reorder folders using the numbers and assign documents to folders by specifying the document numbers.
