[bksvol-discuss] Re: Proper Scanning Protocol and Upload Formatting

Hi Kane,

The scanning and proofreading manual can be very, very helpful, but also,
very daunting.  There is a section in the manual devoted specifically to
settings that work well using Kurzweil 1000, both for scanning and for
proofreading. That might be a place to start.  Just an idea.

And again, welcome aboard!

OK, that's why I am glad I found the scanning manual, even though I've not
yet taken the time to read it.  Two different friends who use Bookshare (but
who are not volunteers, as far as I know), told me that books are to be
uploaded in the format I used to scan them in--in my case, with the .KES
extension that Kurzweil uses.  So once again, thanks for your help, Mayrie.
It's good to come into this new venture without jumping to preconceived
conclusions.  I don't want my effort to be rejected, given the amount of
time it takes to scan a full-length book.

Cheers,

-Kane
