Hi Chela, good luck with your gig. Break a leg, or equivalent thereof.
Regards, Kim.

She sounds like a nice person trying to help out in the way she possibly
can, is she a Kurzweil user? Or is she a sighted volunteer? Perhaps I'd do
the same thing if I were given treatment in that manner, but seeing as is I
was almost persuaded to leave this list do to unnamed resoning, I
reconsiddered and am too glad I can help in any way I possibly can, though
I'm out of a scanner for a while, unfortunately, so proofread whenever I
possibly can. I try to contribute where possible as well, so I'm sure we
have all had horrible scans, I'm sure she feels like a little fish in a big
pond though and would have liked a chance to have met her perhaps she could
use some positive feedback and constructive critisism to help her along the
way, like notes of what people have seen in her scannings and perhaps wasy
on going about not making the same mistakes twice, just to make her feel
like she is needed or rather her work is appreciative in some way something.
Anyway, back to my trumpeting, got a gig on the 19th of February on the USO
ship doing 1940's music and patriotic selections as well, and I get free
food too, sweetness! So I won't be here that day.

Oh my! I proofed one of her books with no difficulties. There were one or
two pages missing, but I was able to contact her and get those issues
resolved. It was certainly nothing major though, and in my opinion, there is
never a reason to get snippy with someone just because of a poor scan.

Pam was on this list a long time ago. The treatment she received back then
was beyond rude. I was appalled by it and considered it unprofessional, more
so than scanning poorly. If this is like a job, then we need to act like
we're professionals and treat each other with courtesy.  It is possible to
disagree with someone without degrading them. Where I work, I would be
suspended for talking to my coworkers the way Pam was treated on this list.
I don't blame her for leaving and wouldn't give out my address after that
either. If you need to reach her about a specific book, please write to Pavi
and ask if she will make contact. 

 

Some of us have been helping Pam learn to scan better, and her work has
improved markedly. I don't think she'll ever risk being on this list again
though. Her services are valuable to me, if not to anyone else here. She
buys and scans books, and the majority of what she has done during the last
two years is quite readable.
