[bksvol-discuss] Re: Another Question for Braille Readers

Hi Allison,

I like blank lines before and after headings, even with a Braille display, 
as that's really the only way to know a heading exists.  Though I like blank 
lines before and after bulleted and numbered lists, I do not like them 
between items; just list the items one per line.  :-)

Thanks.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Another Question for Braille Readers


Hi Everyone,

I do read Braille, but I don't always know if my own opinion reflects that
of the majority, so once in a while I ask questions here.

I'm validating a book that has a lot of headings and almost no blank lines
separating them.  I know that when I'm rereading hardcopy Braille, it's
great
to have the headings separated with blank lines, but the experience isn't
the same with a Braille display.  Do those of you reading with displays
still like to have the headings separated by blank lines?  I've been doing
that, but if it doesn't make a big difference then I won't.  Also, what
about numbered lists, do you like a blank line after each numbered item?
How about bulleted lists?  I've been changing the bullets into stars upon
the suggestion of many of you on this list, but I hadn't asked about the
blank lines before.

All feedback is welcome.  It won't lead to any official Bookshare policy,
this is just for my own reference.

Thanks,

Allison
