Thanks for your answer, but I forgot to mention. I am in high school, and 
high schools don't have a college stile disability office. The school did 
what they know, AKA contacting RFBD and book share, but they are like, we 
don't know what to do. So, to be able to have the books by the time school 
starts, I have to find a solution on how to make the text books digital.

Thanks
Mark
