Bookshare no longer accepts submissions in Braille. That was part of the change they made when they stopped accepting TXT files last Fall. The draft of the new manual was updated to reflect the change at the time the policy took effect.. If there's any confusion after the manual's released, then we'll tackle it then. The new manual should be available on the website within a day or two after the next upgrade to the website. Can't give you a definite time frame, but as people have probably noticed, upgrades are occurring much more frequently now, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it before the end of July.

Once it's up there, we'll be able to dynamically update it whenever changes are needed, and we will summarize those changes at the front of the document (once we start revving it). To start with, since so much content, we're going to recommend that all the volunteers read the whole thing.

I wish that Jake, Gerald and whoever else has any influence with the staff would request guidance on this matter. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pratik Patel" <pratikp1@xxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, June 28, 2007 4:47 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: One more question > Hello all, > > If you want to make a specific change for the braille, than I would > suggest that you please make that correction in the braille file and not > change the print.
