Thanks Gerald. I've saved the instructions.

Do you know if kes files can be opened in MSWord or WordPad?

It's a shame if people who do not have Kurzweil cannot validate books with kes endings.

Jane,

Here's a copy of the instructions. They aren't that great, so you'll need
to learn most of what you need to know from the list and the tips on Jake's
website, http://www.jbrownell.com/bks/

Thanks Jake. I do not have the validation instructions so if someone can
send me a copy, I'd appreciate it.

Hi Jane,

Have you received a copy of the current validation instructions? If not,
I'm sure someone can forward along a copy. It at least gives somewhat of
an introduction to the process.

No, OpenBook cannot open KES files, as that format is only available to
Kurzweil.

Yes, all the disclaimers and legal mumbo jumbo are automatically inserted
by the BookShare processing tools after you validate the book.

HTH,
Jake

Hi Everyone.
John Glass wrote back to me. Indeed, my volunteer status wasn't quite
right. Somehow, I had two accounts and now I'm updated to the right page
for volunteers.

I'd like to download a book from the validation page. Since this is my
first book, can others share what and how they proceed with the process?

I read Jake's tip page and the volunteer home page so am familiar with
some of the tips.

Also, since I have OpenBook, can I open files with a kes ending?

Do the administrators place all the BookShare disclaimers into the book
before they release it to the BookShare web page?
All help given will be appreciated.

Jane and Izzy
