Hello. I'm attempting to finish scanning my first-ever Bookshare contribution: a nonfiction biographical work that includes a lot of citations. These citations exist primarily in the form of endnotes; but of course the numbering of these endnotes is visible throughout each page. I'm trying to figure out an efficient way to mark these up in Kurzweil 1000 so I don't have to spend endless time reading the entire book on my PC, placing each number citation in the right syntax manually. When I looked through the Bookshare Volunteers' manual, I found the following reference on such citations: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/4.8+C.+Footnotes%2C+Superscripts+and+Subscripts%2C+and+Sidebars. It says that square brackets should go around each of these citation numbers within the body of the text. It also says, though, that OCR software has a "global drop" feature that can be invoked to cause all superscripted text to be lowered visually to the same height as the body of the document. But I don't know how this would work in Kurzweil 1000, or if there is any efficient way to adjust or standardize citations of this kind that will permit me to complete scanning this accurately without taking a whole year to scan this book. In some cases, I've counted as many as 20 citations on one page. Thanks for any advice you can provide. I've written this to both the Kurzweil 1000 discussion list and the Kurzweil Volunteers' discussion list.
