Well just saying what I saw! I hope that people will be considerate when replacing hard efforts whether picture descriptions etc.!

I don't understand why Bookshare would just automatically have a book replaced by one done by outsourcers; this isn't the same as a book from the publisher, is it?

    Jamie, no they didn't I didn't see any picture descriptions,
    sadly! I don't think that outsourcers from Africa and such do that
    sort of thing but someone can correct me, I remember reading books
    that were submitted by Digital Divide or something like that. They
    do a reasonable job too. I'm sure they're not reading this
    messages but thumbs up to them so far.

    Scott, one of the first books I proofread as a new volunteer was
    called No, David by David Shannon, where the pictures were highly
    important because the words No David (which are about the only
    words in the book) just don't mean anything without the pictures.

    However, when I just checked, it was replaced by a scan done by
    Worth Trust.

    So I hope they put in the picture descriptions equivalent to the
    ones I worked so hard on a few years ago.
