[bksvol-discuss] Re: Publisher Book?

I have found some with Daisy markup only at the beginning and at the end. That is okay with me usually. I ordinarily read from start to finish anyway, so I may have encountered some that were well marked up and not known it, but there have been a few that were not.

HI Roger,

I have not found publisher quality books lacking in daisy markup at all.
They lack page breaks, but all other daisy navigation is present. That's
been my experience anyway.

I think the question was asked because books with plenty of Daisy markup
were wanted. Publisher quality books are lacking in that.
Outsourcers are organizations that are hired by Bookshare to proofread and,
I think, to submit books. They are typically organizations that hire or
train blind people for employment. An example is Worth Trust. If you see any
books in the collection that are labeled as submitted or proofed by Worth
Trust then that is an organization in India that works with blind Indians.
There are other such outsourcers from Africa, the United States and
elsewhere too.

Hi,
This question might sound dumb or whatever but who cares. What are
outsourcers?

Try going to the advanced search. Go down the page until you find the
check boxes for the quality of books you are searching for. Uncheck
publisher quality and be sure the other qualities are checked and
then click go. The results that are returned should be books that
were not submitted by publishers. I get 69,077 results. This will
include both books produced by volunteers and by the outsourcers.

You should fill out a quality report on the book that has no page
breaks or numbers, and then it will be fixed.

      Taking time out from proofing for a few days to read a book from
      the collection.  The book has absolutely no page breaks or page
      numbers.  Do you think it might be a publisher book? Publisher
      books are not proofed by us, right? How can you find our books as
      opposed to the publisher books in the collection?
