[bksvol-discuss] Re: book scanning woes

Are you serious! I'd hate to have to scan that sucker! Can you imagine how long that would take on one page mode! You'd be working on the same book for months and months! And then if something went wrong with it... Makes my book look like a children's novel!

Long book? Try Executive Orders by Tom Clancey. About 1,5000 pages, if
memory serves.

Wow, that's a really long book! At least we are giving people a quality book
to read when we're finally done, see, I've already adopted Julie's way of
thinking.

Julia,

It eventually ends, or so I'm telling myself.  I'm currently scanning
a BSO of Trinity by Leon Uris, which is 897 pages long.  I was over
half way through when I realized that I was scanning in the wrong mode
in Kurzweil, meaning that the page breaks wouldn't show up on
Bookshare, so over I've started.  Here's to perseverance *grin*

Julia,

Does it help in the slightest that from everything I've read on
Amazon, it looks like a brilliant book, and I will devour it as soon
as it is submitted?

Hi, just thought I'd share my frustration with people
who understand. I'm almost done with a six hundred page
tome by Barbara wood. I took this book out through
interlibrary loan, and just found out that it was due back
yesterday, and I don't see it anywhere in my loans list.
Then, when I go to read it, I switched from grayscale to
dynamic threshold halfway through in an attempt to preserve
page numbers, there were letters missing from the beginning
of lines. This means that I now have over three hundred
pages to rescan! I guess I should've stuck to grayscale,
arg!
On top of that, the parts didn't scan at all, this
means that there are two blank pages, and then the text just
continues with no warning that you've now switched a
good ten years forward!Just for the record, the book is
Green City in the Sun.  Julia
