Since we are on this subject of quality, I am presently reading 1776 by David McCullough. Since Gustavo mentioned this book in his newsletter, I assume that it was scanned in office. It was given an excellent rating but obviously the stripper wasn't working part of the time so there are unreadable garbled lines. I assume that these books are not validated since one wouldn't have to read very far to begin to see the problems. What especially concerns me about such books is that their rating of excellent makes them available for brailling through the Braille Institute; as this is fairly costly, I for one would be very disappointed if I paid that kind of money and ended up with the not esxcellent quality. I know there are differences of opinion on this list, but I for one would far rather see quality than 24000 books, too many of which are not enjoyable reading. I am a braille reader and maybe this is more noticeable for us, but I can't imagine how DAISY handles the garbled line s either tant to sacrifice quality by not validating in favor of having the book on Bookshare so soon after it comes out?
