Jim,

Volunteers can't submit commercially available e-books.  You have to scan a
book yourself in order to submit it.

Bookshare can accept commercially available e-books, but they must come
directly from either the publisher or the author.

Hi,
As I read through the stuff about how to help, there was something that was
not totally clear to me. Here is the potential situation. Let's say I have
bought a PDF book. Am I permitted to make a rich text file from it and
submit it as a book on Bookshare or is that not permitted because
technically I can read it with Adobe already and anyone who has Adobe could
read it if they bought the book?
