[bksvol-discuss] Re: scanning tools and output formats

OK, you guys are making me feel guilty now. <smile> I have Kurzweil and I've 
been meaning to take a look at what's up there but haven't yet. I guess I 
should, huh? <smile> Seriously, I've been meaning to, and I will. I signed 
up to volunteer because I wanted to help, as all of us have, so I will try 
to take some of those. Take care.

Dan and Monica,

If those who submit in Kes want their submissions validated I guess they
will be waiting longer than those who submit in RTF.  I cannot validate in
KES or ARC either.
