[bksvol-discuss] Re: just submitted 25 books

Amber,

You can get the Fujitsu FI4220 for about $1200 if you shop around online. It's not as fast and doesn't hold as many pages as the big high-end models, but it also doesn't cost $5000. And it beats any off-the-shelf box-store product by a long shot. However, Mike is right, in order to get full advantage of the scanner you have to be willing to chop the bindings off books, which also, of course, means you have to buy them.
Take care,
Donna

I would love one of those scanners. They sure would be nice. Ah well one can dream! I am playing with GMail on the web. It's interesting. GMail is being wierd on my outlook express so I'm sorry if this contains any errors. I am working on a book called The Young Kennedys, or something like thatt... Very interesting! Amber

The reason Carrie can submit 25 books is that as, an inside volunteer, she
is using an automated high speed scanner which works on the books after
the pages have been unbound.
This scanner costs thousands of dollars so it is not practical for home
use nor would most of us be willing to see books destroyed in the process.
Hence, while we may scan one book, Carrie can do 10 or more.
If Benetech could afford a plethora of these scanners and had the
volunteers to operate them, just think of the output that could be
generated.
