Nook to carry one of the Android apps (e.g. Go Read) that supports Bookshare content.
It makes no sense that the Nook is built on the Android OS and we can't get an ereader app for Android on the device that support Bookshare content. I was told to purchase a Nook so my daughter could read her Bookshare books on it now I find that is not the case. She was very disappointed!
make Victor Reader more user-friendly (e.g., user should be able to turn off audio & Reader should save last page read upon closing book/Reader), or make it possible to read Bookshare books on other readers (such as Adobe Digital Editions or Nook for PC).
This past winter Barnes and Noble added Go Read to their list of apps available for the NOOK HD/HD+ tablet. It is free to download from: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/go-read-benetech/1113612891

Any update since July?
Was informed incorrectly that my daughter should buy a Nook for reading Bookshare content. After the purchase and much investigation I now find this is not possible. While the NookColor would be engaging and motivation to hopefully read more, I will now have to return it and purchase something else like an Android tablet so I can load an app like Go Read or some other app that works and connects seamlessly!
I agree Jeanette. I purchased a nook for my daughter to be able to use her tablet instead of her laptop while using Bookshare reading program. This read aloud app would be useful for people with physical or mental disabilities. Wish i purchased a Kindle instead. You can use Darwin Reader with it.

Students who have a Nook are very limited in the selection of e textbooks available through Barnes & Noble. Bookshare would be a great resource for these books. A Read2go app would be great!
Nook is hard to type on . Would lovve to work with you onnn this, wish they'd have a read2go app avaiabble
