One thing that would be a great improvment is to put some energy into the Victor Reader that bookshare offers to members to "access" the books. It is not reliable, or predictable, and for most students difficult to learn. At least mine it was.
We ended up using Kurzweil or doing the .html trick.But it should be an asset to Bookshare and state that you will be able to access them, and provide support to our files, with our own software.

These are some great ideas. It sounds like categories, navigation, and improved browsing for books matter a lot. I hope some of these things will be improved in the new site when it's launched. For now, have any of you who have a blog considered writing a post with links to some of your favorite hard to find books? It might help people who share your tastes finds some good reads. -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
