Dilsia, Having K-1000 or even OpenBook can be helpful, but as you've probably discovered, having one of them isn't necessary. Bookshare doesn't use either one in-house, only Fine Reader and Word, or at least I believe Word is Carrie's personal choice. If you see the need, then You can still clean up some books in the collection by asking Gustavo to put a book from the collection back on the Step 1 page for you to revalidate. Otherwise, you'd lose the page breaks when converting a book back to RTF in order to clean it up and resubmit, and as you've probably heard, Bookshare hasn't accepted books without page breaks for the past year. As you noticed, Gustavo's definitely been busy approving books lately. Besides cutting the admin queue down by 500 books recently and keeping it around 50 or below, he's also managed to nearly double the number of Spanish books in the collection from books which were donated to Bookshare. I believe these are the books which are going through the minimal validation process and being rated Fair as default due to a need for more volunteering from people fluent in Spanish, so if you can confirm that some deserve having their quality upgraded, then I'm sure Bookshare would like to know and adjust their rating. Nice to have you back on the list. HTH Gerald -----Original Message----- From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Dilsia A.

Lewis in Spanish and will submit Micah from the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series L. K. Hamilton in English. Cindy-sensei I have written to Gustavo and awaiting his respone about the Spanish books rated fair I've been scouring the list; does Gustavo drinks Red Bull or something? he's way up in high gear(smile). Many thanks to you and Gerald Hovas for answering my questions. Gerald I don't have Kurzweil nor OpenBook their price tag is too high for me to tackle sniff, sniff. Happy birthday Carrie Karnos, by the way thanks for helping me in that issue of black background and white fonts. I didn't know about the shading feature on Word thanks Gustavo :). Ohh!!! Did you leave some cake and ice cream ( I guess I'm a little to late) Ups. Dilsia __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
