[bksvol-discuss] Re: kurzweil tutorials

People can become sick, move away, decide that scanning stuff isn't right 
for them, enjoy using Fine Reader better instead of K 1000 for example.

There is a mass market in used CCTVs and I have seen notetakers, and screen 
reading software for sale in the backs of Braille Forum and Braille Monitor. 
Why not Kesy, smile.

After all she can only ask.

I recieved a brailler from a elderly neighbor's sister, who could no longer 
use it.  I received several writing guides from my previous place of 
employment because they didn't know what they were, but i did.

So... it happens.

I do know one individual who sold his copy of Kesy on Ebay, as he didn't 
want it anymore.  Why I don't know but he did.

Amy if I donated my copy of k1000 I would give up my license.  I would then
have to buy a new copy to get a license.  I simply cannot think of a reason
why anyone would donate a copy of a licensed program to someone unless that
person died and no longer needed a scanning software package.  If, for
instance, the person wanted to change from Open Book to K1000, Kurzweil has
a trade in policy but the person has to give kurzweil their OB license
number.  Hope this makes the process clearer.
