Hi,

You can always buy VMWare Fusion and if you have a copy of Windows you can use, install that on the Mac, then you have everything on one machine.

Cheers

I like the courier over other options mentioned such as Stream and Booksense because of the quality of the voice I use, the high speed at which I can read and the astonishingly good battery life.   I never use it for audio books or other mp3 files.  Though I also have a Plextalk Pocket, I find its Daniel voice horrible to listen to.

For text and daisy books though, you'll need to use the transfer tool software which is only available for windows at this time.  Since the book courier has been discontinued for over a year now, I doubt whether any support for the mac will be forthcoming, so you might want to consider upgrading to something like the book sense.
