Thats where the problem starts.

Maybe it would be possible that those people go to Als house and use his
equipment under his supervision to help him get it processed. Knowing
the problem with his backlog, when I got a VAX CPU manual, I bought a
scanner with ADF only to scan this single manual. I did it according to
Als instructions so that Al had to do only very minimal post
processing. (IIRC I sent him TIFFs so that he just needed to do the
multiple TIFF => PDF conversion.)
