Automatic Scroll

by guavaman / June 30, 2013 4:29 AM PDT

I am looking for e-reader software that will work with Windows 7 and has an automatic scroll feature. My wife is disabled and needs this feature to read without needing someone to turn pages for her. She had been using and app called eReader Pro for Windows (from ereader.com) but it mysteriously stopped working on her machine. She is currently using Adobe Reader which has a scroll feature, but it does not work as well. Any ideas?

Since it worked and now does not.

I'd try that app on other PCs to see if it's a software issue or a machine issue.

It works on 2 other PC's in the house (one a netbook) and also on my Mac desktop. She's currently using the program on the netbook, but the smaller screen means she's reading slower, as she can't increase the scroll rate enough to make up for it and still be able to follow the text. (The other laptop is in another part of the house.)

Then it's a matter of fixing that PC.

I don't see enough detail to offer must other than reload the PC to the original configuration that worked.

I know this is not popular but troubleshooting over a forum is limited as we can't see the PC and only use what members will tell and even then that may not be enough. This is why a reload works.
