I think becoming a validator requires a little more hand holding than just pointing someone to the sign up page, if the validator is sighted. If the person is already print disabled, he or she is used to (I assume) reading books in a different format. That's why I was suggesting that if anyone "advertises" for new volunteers, that they be directed to an existing volunteer who is willing to do a little hand holding and not just say see bookshare.org for more details. When I became a volunteer, even though I understood about Bookshare, I was scared to death to try to validate something. The process sounds so complicated when really it's not, if you just know what to do. And while the manual is good, it's not complete (if it were, we wouldn't have all the questions on the list that we do). What I was envisioning was something like: Do you love to read books? Would you enjoy proof reading digital books to make them accessible to people with print disabilities? Become a volunteer for Bookshare, and have the opportunity to read books while you're helping others. Volunteers need a computer, internet connection, and a word processing program such as Word, Works, Word Perfect or Open Office. For more information, contact [fill in the blank].
