HI, This has been somewhat addressed, but even with a book of around 600 pages, when I convert it from KES to RTF the RTF file is only a little over a meg. I am not sure what you are converting from but check your settings. Katie Hill You can learn a lot if you are humble enough to listen.

By the time the upload was done, my session would expire and I would be told to log in again and my book was not uploaded. However, Bookshare no longer accepts text format. Is there any way to get my RTF to be any ssmaller? I scanned it using the .TIF image format, in which several pages are scanned into one image. This puts each scanned page on its separate page when I OCR it with Omnipage. When I combine the three or so RTF files into 1, (I can only scan 100 pages into each TIF file) the resulting RTF is over 40 MB. Is there any way to strip the RTF of it's graphical formatting -- color, alignment, Etc. while still keeping page numbers? Thanks for any help. Munawar A.
