  Obviously, the heavily financed lobbyists for the Play Writers and Dramatic 
Works Creators of America got to the politicians. <smile>

    No, plays in book form are unacceptable.  I believe plays and dramatic 
works are exempted from the Chaffee amendment, which is the law that allows 
books to be accessible to blind people.  Now, if there's a book ABOUT a play, 
with parts of the play in it, that's okay.  We have a book about the play RENT 
(http://www.bookshare.org/web/SingleTitle.html?submittitleid=37587) which is 
much more than the actual play.  If you can find a book about Waiting for 
Godot, that would be a fine addition to the collection.

      Can Bookshare accept plays that are in book form? For example, Waiting 
for Godot : tragicomedy in 2 acts / by Samuel Beckett ; translated from the 
original French text by the author.

      Why can't Bookshare accept dramatic works such as plays?
