Hi Pavi,

I love the idea! The current setup, however, is a pain in the butt to use with my voice-recognition software. Every long line of text scrolls off to the right of the screen to some set point, and then wraps, instead of wrapping as it should on an ordinary display. So I am constantly having to scroll right to read a long line, then scroll back to read the beginning of the next line, which means I have to use about eight commands to move around on a the screen to read each line. Ick! Someone needs to tweek the html so that the pages don't do that. smile.

Dear All,

I wanted to let you know that we are working to make the Bookshare Wish List and the Books Being Scanned List that Cindy compiles, available on the Bookshare wiki along with the Scanning & Proofreading Manual. At this point, I have basically cut and pasted the lists Cindy sends out to these pages. One of the immediate advantages of this is that you can use the search feature on the wiki to search both lists at once. Before making an announcement about these links to the entire volunteer community I was hoping to have some of you on the volunteer list take a look, and let me know how they work for you so that we have a chance to improve them if necessary.

Here are the links to the two lists:

1. Bookshare Wish List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Bookshare+Wish+List

2. Bookshare Being Scanned List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Books+Being+Scanned+List

Looking forward to hearing from you – and as always gratitude to Cindy for all her painstaking work.

All good things,
