We’re looking for volunteers to support staff on the pre-production side of book production, adding important notes/edits to PDF books for textbook narrators and proof listeners. This is important because the bookmarked copy of the PDF is used as visual contextual guidance for volunteer narrators and proof listeners when creating books.
Please note that a volunteer in this role must already have extensive experience and mastery with understanding project conventions, and be a current and active member of the Textbook community as either narrator, proof listener, or both. Reading conventions are the established Learning Ally rules that guide volunteers in book production to ensure consistency throughout the volunteer community and book project catalog.
