[bookshare-discuss] Re: Html book?

Let's start with the fact that about 90% of those in the vision challenged arena, 20/200 to 0/00 do not read braille. Likewise, many prefer getting the book in html then using their browser to convert them for reading elsewhere. This service also serves those with learning related print disabilities as well. If the center for disease control is to be believed, that numbers about 15% of the entire United States population. so the html editions give choice which is what any service should be all about.

Does this make sense?

in HTML?

Nope.

Sounds like you have an unwanted visitor on your PC.

Hi, I download bookshare books and also have the html version.  Since
today,

anyone have this problem?  Andy
