[Athen] Question regarding "Abby" training

Afternoon all!

I have been in my position for about six months now, and have begun to supervise the person who is in charge of e-text. I recently realized that while we have Abby (v. 9), we are only using it to scan in books that we have spliced into Word documents and editing within Word.

I would like to work with her on using all of the robust features in Abby to render a document accessible (rather than putting the text in Word) and was wondering if anyone knows of any good (and potentially free) online training resources/websites/videos for "how to use" Abby to render docs accessible.

I attended the two-day training while in CO for the conference and it was EXCELLENT, but, I would like to have a resource (preferably some vids) that my e-text coordinator could refer to often when using the program as a resource to refresh her memory on how to use the program.

Any insight is welcomed!!

Happy holidays!
