I have tried to send a scan of a letter for translation assistance, but
the email was rejected with the explanation that it needed to be sent
via plain text. But plain text does not accept the scan, and the SIG
doesn't accept documents.
Thank you Toby Glickman
Prepare your documents (using scanner or image editing
software) and save them in the appropriate format - JPEG, TIFF, PNG or GIF.
Please be sure to include the correct extension (.jpg, .jpeg, .tif, .tiff,
.png or .gif) in the filename.
Please do not use a number as the first character in your filename.
Crop your document if necessary to display only the area of interest - this will reduce the document's file size.
Remember, ViewMate will accept a maximum file size of 3 MB per file.
Tips and recommendations on scanning and preparing your documents can
be found in the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section.
NOTE - A maximum of five (5) files per user per viewing cycle (7 days).
If you have additional files, please DO NOT SUBMIT them until your
current files have been removed.
