Jackie, I understand the point you were trying to make, but sighted volunteers like myself can also be print disabled. Blindness isn't the only disability that makes individuals print disabled. smile. There are a great many people, like myself, who can't read printed books for a variety of reasons other than blindness.
Sadly, individuals like myself only qualify for NLS and Bookshare and can't get books any other way. Because we aren't blind, we're shut out from the many services non-profits and other organizations have that provide books in alternative formats (cassettes, CDs, etc) that are provided free or at low cost for blind individuals.

If Bookshare staff is gonna site copyright violation issues as a reason not to do this, then sighted volunteers shouldn't be allowed at all since they're not print disabled.
