E.,
Have you ever talked to someone who asks how you are, and then interrupts 
before you can even say, "Fine, thank you?"  I think that some people do not 
really pay attention to what they read/hear, and therefore the confusion 
begins.

Seemed odd to me but I have heard it now from several blind folks.  Some of
them work for agencies and software manufacturers too so the feeling must
be widespread.  The part about haveing to be a member to search worries me
almost as much as the part about having to be a member to submit.  I am
also concerned that k1000 and bookshare do not work closely together.  For
instnace, it would be nice to somehow be able to input a title before
scanning it and search quickly for it in the bookshare database even if you
are not a member.  that way, someone new to scanning can make sure the
bookshare collection does not include the book before beginning the process
of scanning.

How closely does bookshare work with the makers of scanning packages,
particularly those made for disabled users?
