Barbara, I think your author friend has to give the book directly to Bookshare. I don't think you can take the cd rtf book and upload it. Are the pictures in the rtf file? If so, when it is uploaded to Bookshare, I would be glad to download it and add descriptions to the pictures as part of the validation process. Otherwise I have to get the print book and do it, but if I can get it, I am happy to try that.
