[bksvol-discuss] Re: Missing text

I've never tried it from a web page. I'll try and get back to you in the
next couple of days.

Hi John!

Just in case I'd need to know how to do it in the future, how would I 
download an image of a page from any site such as books.google.com or 
Amazon?  I am not able to see the image on the web site and Window-Eyes 
doesn't seem to indicate them when I know they are there.
