Hi, Cindy. I agree with what you're saying. I don't know if you've
thought about how it would actually work though. If someone rejects
the book and re-submits it as an rtf, the original submitter won't get
credit. As long as Bookshare continues to accept books in these
formats, I don't think it's fair to reject a book due to its format. I
wish we could take it from step 1, convert it, send it to the admin
queue, and have Carrie kick it back to step 1 for validation as an
rtf. I have Openbook and would be willing to do that. I don't want to
tackle actually validating those books though. We also have a couple
of books in wyn format, one of which I'd actually be willing to
validate if I could open the danged thing. The really annoying part of
this for me is that the poor submitters don't know why we haven't
approved their books. Some of them are sitting around thinking that we
don't like their books. The truth is that we can't open some of them
at all, and others are in a format only some of our volunteers can
process. Humbug! :P
