Gary: It isn't always like what u say here. Sometimes there are graphs or charts that need to be described, sometimes pagination issues w/a book, etc., that can be done only by a person who actually has the print book, & often only by a person w/eyesight. Some of these folks qualify for bookshare as they themselves are print-disabled but many do not. So the blind person cleans up as much as s/he can--yet there are still issues to be resolved which could potentially cause the book to be rejected, e.g. paging. I think whoever uploads the book gets the credit & that needs to be worked out by the validators themselves. Often, as I said, the folks we're talking about don't need the credits anyway. But if there's credits to be worked out then the 2 validators need to do that between themselves like big boys & girls so as not to create issues for the Bookshare staff, cuz that's not right, either.
