Not sure if any of you are aware of this group, but they are a volunteer organization that helps prepare public domain texts for uploading to Project Gutenberg
. This helps to make the texts more widely available, and also allows those who are blind to be able to read the books using text-to-speech software. Many of you have likely used Project Gutenberg e-texts, or copies of them at other websites, at one point or another. Many publishers use PG e-texts in order to prepare print editions of books. Thus, making a book available on PG helps to make it more available, both in print and electronic formats.
If you're interested in helping to make more public domain books accessible to a wider audience, feel free to sign up at Distributed Proofreaders
and lend a hand. How it works is that you compare an image of a printed page to an electronic read-out produced by OCR software, and look for errors, typos, etc. Even proofing one page a day goes a long way!
There are many good Catholic books that go through the rounds at DP (among a number of books that are less than friendly to Catholics, of course). User Camomiletea maintains a list of Catholic books (or books with Catholic matter) that are currently being worked on here:http://www.pgdp.net/wiki/User:Camomiletea#Catholic_Team
You may also wish to join Team Catholic
at DP. If there is a book you would like us to work on, feel free to suggest it in the Team forum.
