[bksvol-discuss] Re: ARK (Arkenstone)?

Jana,
If you download an ark file to validate, yes, it is permissible to upload as 
rtf. In fact, it is required. What I was trying to say earlier, was if one of 
us download the ark file just to simply convert it to rtf and release it so 
that someone else could have access to validate it, it would appear on the step 
one page as an ark file again, so basically your bothering to convert it does 
nothing. 
Hopefully that's a little more clear. My brain doesn't always want to cooperate 
when it's important.

  Hi, everyone!  I think Scott's idea is a great one, except for one thing.  
I've noticed that when I bring up a file or scan a file into Open Book and then 
launch it into Word, I seem to lose a lot of formatting.  In fact, sometimes 
Word (or Duxbury, too, for that matter) seems to put all of the text into one 
huge paragraph.  So, if FS would improve this feature, it would be doable.

  Downloading books in the .ark format and uploading them in RTF is certainly 
allowed... Or did I misunderstand Tiffany's last post? <Smile>

    I guess essentially it could be done that way--as if you resubmitted the 
book only in another format, but then how does the real submitter obtain the 
submission credit? The validater would have to know to download both copies, 
and though they would be using the rtf copy, also know to reject the copy which 
was originally in rtf and then after validating the rtf copy then approve the 
submission which was originally in ark. It seems much too complicated.

      Yes, this is true, but would it be possible for those of us with the 
Openbook program to download the file and then re-upload it via the Step 1 
page?  There would then be two copies, but the new submitter could make a note 
to that affect.  just a thought.

        problem is, when you release a book, it goes back up in it's original 
format/condition.

          I have a kind of half formed thought about how we might be able to 
get more people validating the .ark books.  Could someone that has Openbook 
download the file, convert it to .rtf, then release it back to the web site as 
a rich text format file, thus allowing someone else to get their hands on the 
books they'd personally like to validate?  I might not quite have the logistics 
down, but there must be a solution we can work out.

            Hi Alison,
            Arc is the format used by Openbook, another OCR package that's a 
competitor to Kurzweil. Unfortunately if you don't have Openbook, you can't 
work on those files. It's a shame to because I would like to get my hands on 
that great big pile of language teaching and learning books that someone 
submitted.
