[bksvol-discuss] Re: Formatting Poetry

Hi, Jim and Gary,

until the end of last November, I used K1000 version 11 and JAWS 5 for almost a year and a half pretty smoothly together. I don't have JFW anymore, but someone I know whose computer I have actually used, has JAWS 9 and K1000 version 11 and they coexist together quite well. Occasionally, you may get them both talking at the same time when you switch focus from some other window to K1000, but I never found it to be a really big issue. If you're in K1000, and hit the Windows-m combo to go to the desktop for example, JAWS usually takes over seamlessly, with only a slight pause.

Hi Gary,
I don't think JFW and Kurzweil can run at the same time. Maybe someone else
can chime in about this.

Thanks.

I'll remember that for when I buy JFW, but if I'm running K1000 will JFW be

able to run successfully?

Hi,
Versions of JAWS starting with 6 allow you to turn on the ability to
automatically tell you if a line is indented and by how much. If you
build
that into a sound scheme, you can switch to your homemade scheme and when
you arrow to the indented lines, JAWS will speak them and tell you about
the indentations. Alternatively, you can just go into the verbosity
dialog
and turn it on and off if you don't want to go through the process of
making the sound scheme.

Thanks.

Hi Gary,

        Generally, when the width of the page is the line-length
limiting factor, the text on the next line is indented.  This gets
sticky when the poet indents lines for asthetic reasons as
well.  Sorry I can't give you an answer that will always be true.

I have a somewhat related question about poetry.  When doing a
poetry book, how does one know when lines break because the poet
wants it or when they break because a page is only so wide?

Hi,
I know this has been brought up here before, and I forget what the
answer
was, so please forgive me. I downloaded some Robert Frost poetry to read
and found that there was no break at all between stanzas, so knowing
that
formatting would be a chore at best, I have steered away from validating
poetry books. What does the stripper mess up about poetry and is there
any
way I can help it avoid doing that?

Thanks.
