Hi, Misha. According to the Bookshare staff, Bookshare's server runs on a flavor of UNIX. They do not have a file converter that can process ark, kes, and wyn files when they come in. Files are simply zipped upon receipt and are placed in the step 1 area. For these reasons, I'm in favor of making rtf the only format for submitting books. Alas, the answer to that suggestion has been no. A girl can still hope though. (smile)

I've only been volunteering for a few months, but I've wondered why the bookshare staff couldn't make the conversion. If rtf is their preferred format, why not allow submitting in kes and ark, but they would convert those to rtf before putting them on step 1 (or do submitted files automatically appear on step 1 immediately?
