Think I'll weigh in here. The last time I knew, all that was technically required of proofreaders was that the page count be correct, the title page be in tact and all of the copyright info should be there. if I'm wrong, I appologize. the philosophy of bookshare was "if it's good enough for you as a scan, it's good enough for bookshare'. as for the quick turn-around on some books, some of us work in teams. I scan a book, give it to my wife, she proofs it very carefully and then we process it through the bookshare system making it look like it was grabbed and 'jiffy proofed'. i assure you it was not. But i don't believe people who grab a book, spot check it for errors, ensure that copyright and title page info are present all in 15 minutes or so are doing something wrong. if bookshare wants thoroughly proofed books, they need to change the system to ensure that nothing less is acceptable. An analysis could be done on a submitted book and then again on the final checked-in book and if the same high bad word count still exists, reject the book.
