Hello Elizabeth and all, I would ask you to focus on one of the words you used in your own post: "seems." As blind people, we should all know that appearances are deceiving. I've said this before in my messages. And, I'll say it again. Businesses are not always required to tell users/volunteers everything that is happening within the organization. Bookshare certainly needs improvements; and believe me when I tell you or when Gerald or Jake or Kellie tells you that Bookshare is more than aware of all the bugs, feature requests, and general frustrations. I would ask people to go back and actually examine statements that bookshare has made regarding the staff who have been hired within the last year and their areas of focus before trying to project your own expectations and misunderstandings on their job functions. If you haven't seen the Benetech web site in a while, you'll notice that Bookshare has job notices up for engineers. For those of you who are not aware, it is these Engineers who make things happen behind the scenes by taking the concepts and ideas that come from various sources. If you are an engineer or know engineers interested in this kind of work, please feel free to forward these job descriptions. Sooner these positions are filled, the sooner work can continue/start.

And do all let's remember that the word here is share. I as a volunteer do not feel shared with in building what I thought of as a co-operatively created library we can all enjoy. I have sounded angry. I have been saying the same things for a long period (over two years) and perhaps grow impatient. I am sad and concerned about what seems to be happening (and not happening). A lot of good will is being handled in what seems a cavalier way simply by not much happening over months and months on the same set of related issue. E.
