[bksvol-discuss] Re: Bookshare Daisy files maintain Bolding, Font point sizes, Italics, and more

Hi Jill,

an ordered list is one that is numbered. So it usually goes from 1 to whatever.

An unordered list is an un-numbered list. Usually, you see them as a list with a bullet point in front of each item.

Hope that helps!  smile.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Bookshare Daisy files maintain Bolding, Font point sizes, Italics, and more


Hi all,

With a lot of the questioning about what the DAISY files keep
from the rft, I wanted to confirm the following from my own
experiences.  When the Bookshare tools translate a rtf into the
DAISY files and the associated XML files that a sighted Bookshare
member might read they always maintain:

1. Bolding
2. Font Point sizes
3. Italics
4. Tables (tables that were creates as true tables, using the
Word tables tools, for example).
5. Ordered and unordered lists
6. page numbering and pagination

I'd like to take a moment to really thank all the volunteers who
are working to keep these attributes in the books they scan, even
when those attributes don't make any difference to their own
reading and can be hard to understand.  smile.

For someone who is sighted, a book with all these attributes
stripped out is like listening to a symphony where every member
plays every instrument at the same volume, without any variation,
all the way through. You can listen to it, and still enjoy the
music. However, you've definitely lost some parts of what the
composer intended to convey and might not be able to notice a
theme that the oboes are repeating because the deep brass are
drowning them out.  grin.
