very disappointed

:
NOTE: this does NOT read books from bookshare! Using voiceover to read the text is worthless. Voiceover does not allow you to pause, does not advance through the next section, it does not highlight what is being read, ……
The promise to read non-audio attached Daisy books has been a “promise” for some time. This app is WAY too expensive for what it delivers.
