Remember though that anything in the public domain has to be non
copyrighted. The reasons that NLS and bookshare are limited to students and
have proof of disability is because of copyright. You just cannot go out
and reproduce things in public cyberspace that is copyrighted.
I don't know what religious matterials are copy righted but check on that
Generally to reproduce matterials in accessible format you need permission
from the publisher.
