[bksvol-discuss] Re: bksvol-discuss Digest V8 #205

Sherry; 

Are you a Mac user?  I would love to collaborate with other Mac users and even 
eventually approach manufacturers about viability for scanning books on a Mac.  
I would also love to see a book edge scanner available on a Mac without having 
to resort to Boot Camp, Fusion, or Parallels.

Please contact me off-list if you want to bounce ideas around.  I really want 
to be Mac only!

Valerie
