Bookshare.org offers a great resource for ebooks but I wouldn't recommend RWG as the only reader for those; BS's list of Reader Tools is worth looking at. http://www.bookshare.org/readingTools#mobileDevices
ReadWriteGold is an assistive technology program that is somewhat costly. If all you need is a Reader then I wouldn't recommend RWG, the text to speech function essentially just uses windows built in text to speech engine but makes you go through it's interface after you've converted the ebooks to work.

No, I missed that one too. Does anyone have any more information on it?

designated "NIMAS" site for Vermont. That means it is the only place you can
get textbooks in alternative formats for VT students. ..."
