[bksvol-discuss] Re: First time proofreading

You can download the original file any time. The important thing is to save a copy of the last file with changes you have made. Otherwise, something may happen that will cause you to actually have to go back to that original file and start over.

Hi, Stephanie, Kim here. Welcome to the merry gang. First, how are you
proofreading your book? Are you using a Braille display or just listening to
your screen reader read the text for you or both (in my case both)? There
are proofreaders who use Kurzweil or Open Book to proofread their books
while others use Microsoft Word to do it. So you can open your document in
Word, or at least, that's what I gather. Regards, Kim Friedman. P.S.: Do not be shy about asking questions. There are good proofreaders on this list who
will be glad to help you out should you need it. I'll give you a tip that
somebody passed along to me. When you download your book, make a copy of it and work on the copy rather than the original file in case you mess up. (you
can do the reverse, i.e., work on the original file while keeping a clean
(unworked-on) copy of the file.
This will save you a lot of grief. K.
