It's easy to volunteer for Bookshare!
You can make virtually any book accessible if you are willing to scan the file and submit it to Bookshare. If you have a computer with internet access, a scanner with scan-to-text software, basic computer skills, and a desire to share your love of books, you can get started scanning today!
When books are scanned and converted to text, there are always errors or "scannos" that result. Bookshare volunteers detect and correct errors and formatting so that books are usable with a variety of assistive devices--from screen readers to digital braille displays. A computer with internet access, word processing software and an eye for detail are all you need!
