Hi, Cindy. I have uploaded a number of books to bookshare which I have enjoyed reading, but so far haven't validated any, though when I look at the "Step One: Download" section, I'd love to work with. I then joined this e-mail list to see what people wrote about, and how I might improve my submissions. I have to admit however, to feeling overwhelmed by the number of msgs (I ought to change to "digest" mode, I know), and a sense of total overwhelm over how to do all the things people talk about on the list. I don't want to go back through acres of archived msgs; I'd love to have something like what you're describing, -- something all in one place that I could get my hands on easily, and that I could refer to quickly. I want to congratulate you on such a terrific idea, and such a to-the-point and clear proposal. In this manual, it would be great to find ways to validate books using a notetaker. I have a BrailleNote with a qwerty keyboard, and would like to see both inkprint and braille keyboard information included. Thanks for your proposal; hope you get an enthusiastic go-ahead!
