Dear Lissi, I would be happy to help you with the captions--I use the magnifying part of Word to enlarge things that are in small font--but I would have no idea how to describe how mummified bodies and and Egyptian art look. As for the Jane Austen...picture descriptions aren't really my thing. I'm not really very good at them and am so glad that other sighted people have joined us so I no longer have to do them. Plus I have 4 and soon 5 or 6 books to validate, one of which I'm only a third of the way through.
