Hi,
If you have a PQ text book and your teacher tells you to turn to page 79, what 
do you do?

Another way the volunteer version will be superior is that it will have page
numbers and page breaks. It has to have at least 90 percent of those in the
print copy, or it gets rejected by Bookshare. PQ books usually do not have
many page breaks or page numbers. Some of those I've seen have none at all.
So a volunteer may work hard to ensure that their book meets page break and
page number guidelines and still get their hard work replaced by a book that
has none of either..
