[bksvol-discuss] Re: Questions from a Returning Volunteer

Hi Marilyn,

Are you a member of bookshare.org, or are you a sighted volunteer?  We were 
just assuming you are a member.  <smile>  If you are eligible, a 
print-disabled person, a subscription gives you the right to download books 
from the collection.

Hi Mayrie.

First, thank you for the answer about Tabs/Spaces at the beginning of
a paragraph.  Very helpful and totally understood.

Second, how much is a subscription?  What does a subscription give
you the right to do?

Thanks SO MUCH,
Marilyn
