Hello E and Kellie, I think you both make some good points. At times some of us old timers, that is on bookshare, can state things that are our opinions. There are those who have worked very hard to get as many books out as they can. There are also those who like to do a validation at there own speed. Just "My " opinion that when we make statements about how bookshare volunteers should or shouldn't do their volunteering, if it is outside of the stated bookshare volunteer guidelines, then we should say so. Example: I think or my opinion is if you have to work on a book and add some page breaks then you "should" reject it. Just my opinion:) Katie Hill Noone is given a dream without also being given the power to make it come true.

If there's no way to tell where the breaks should go, then the book would have to be rejected. Many people read their validations all the way through anyway, and if that's what you do then inserting page breaks is very simple and not time consuming. I do agree with your point that submitters should make sure their books meet Bookshare standards, but I would not reject an otherwise excellent scan just because someone didn't have their scanner set to two-page mode. I know everyone has different feelings on this topic, and yours are just as valid as mine. But I think that as long as someone is happy doing the validating they do, and they are able to submit acceptable final products to Bookshare, then he/she has the right to make these choices independently. Of course, suggestions for improving efficiency are great, but when you're dealing with a volunteer organization there can be things at stake beyond efficiency.
