Kim,
I'm only good at proofreading.
I don't have a scanner so can't scan.

  Hi, Stacey, the file you download is in .rtf, so if you have it in a folder 
and press the enter key, your document will automatically open in Word. 
Basically what you're doing (if you are like some of us) is to read the whole 
file from start to finish and if you encounter any scanning errors, you delete 
the error and write in what the text should be (example, let's say you see a 
sentence "We had to drive the cattle into the bam." Now this last word has a 
scanning error, and I bet you might have thought to yourself "Hmm! That word 
should read "barn" not "bam". So you get rid of the M in "bam" and write in the 
RN to make the word correct.) I think you can ask for a list of common scanning 
errors and what they will most likely be. I think if you start out proofreading 
a really great scan, then you hardly need do anything. When you feel more 
confident, there are tips for formatting your file to get it into Bookshare's 
specifications (font, page setup, paragraph presentation, formatting of pages, 
stripping of headers and the like.) I don't know how you learn, Stacey, but I 
know there is a proofreading manual on the Bookshare site, but if that 
overwhelms you, get what you can, and keep asking questions of list members. I 
find proofreading a whole lot less intimidating than scanning. There are others 
on this list who can scan and proofread and they can give you the ins and outs 
of both subjects. I've been helped a great deal through some folks on this 
list. Regards, Kim.

    Hi, Stacey, welcome to the merry gang. If you have questions of any kind, 
folks will be glad to help you out. I proofread books I like for Bookshare. 
Whatever you do, whether scanning and submitting books or proofreading, you're
