Re: where to find accessible textbooks for college in networking

?ok... you just asked me something I don't have the slightest idea. Since I 
don't do music I can't help you with that sorry. It will be nice though.

I have one more question:
Can the Perl Camera scan Music or vocal scores so I can put them into Dancing 
Dot's music translation software?
Thank you,

with a scanner and the latest version of openbook (9), around 2 to 3 hours. 
With openbook 8 and below, it took me 3 hours just to scan the book and another 
hour to process the book. With the pearl now, you know what? I yet haven't scan 
that much paper. But from what I have worked with the machine I would guess an 
hour tops (maybe a little more if I need to re-scan some pages). But to be 
honest, I don't find the job anoying. In fact, I kind of like it. One thing I 
like of using the pearl is that if it is a novel I am scanning I love to start 
readding almost imediately.

How long does it usually take you to scan a 300 page book?

I found that is you scan the book by yourself you can either put bookmarks for 
later use while you are scanning or you can scan the book in separate files. 
That makes the whole process a lot easier. I have no problem scanning te book 
by myself specially since the pearl camera tripples my speed.

Hi Brandon,

Looking for textbooks in an available format for me to read is nothing new. 
Many times publishers will send a textbook as a Word document or PDF file if 
you or the instructor contacts them. That is one strategy I have been using 
lately. I am sure you are aware of RFB and D. They have a large audio textbook 
library. Unfortunately, it is not a perfect solution but they will often have 
the book you are looking for. Other than that it is back to the wonderful 
process of scanning page after page or paying someone else to do it.

Tim

  If you are a student than your disability center needs to get the text books 
by either filling out the publisher's special form or by contacting them 
directly.
  If you want to buy the book then contact them directly and ask to buy an 
accessible format of the book.
  I don't believe there are any accessible E-Text books and the Kindle is 
inaccessible, so you'll either have to weasel out a PDF, .doc, html or rtf 
version of the book, or have the publisher join a book-sharing sight like 
Bookshare.org then get the book off of there.
  please if anyone else has another way can you share?
  This is a really ineffective way of getting books and I don't have time to 
scan my own...
  Thank you,

  Brandon Keith
