Hello E and group:) 

IN a case like you state does this mean the settings were too bright or not
bright enough?

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] an empire of wealth

I am validating this book.  If the submitter had read a few pages several 
patterns would become apparent.

th is being scanned as di.  I believe this points to a brightness setting 
being off.

This is relevant in terms of "folks who scan for credit and do not care 
about the results."  I am particularly referring to Robert's comments about 
credit given for poor scans and blind folks expecting to get rewarded 
(things for free) while doing sloppy work.  I know a lot of schools are 
doing scanning for students.  I wonder if An Empire of Wealth was scanned 
by a student or scanned by someone for that student.

A little tweaking would have resulted in illiminating the following

diough though
die the
diis this
diese
diere there
and on and on it goes.

Here comes rank spelling.  Some of this can be cleaned up if one is willing 
to check out patterns with rank spelling.  So as k1000 improves it may be 
possible to save more and more books.

I do think poor scans like this need to either get less credit or the 
validators need to get more or we need information from official bookshare 
staff about rejecting.  It is one thing to reject light reading matter and 
another to reject things which may be used by students or researchers.  How 
desperate are you bookshare officialdom for books?
