[bksvol-discuss] Re: Fw: A book you validated has been accepted by Bookshare

Yes that is what I'm using, I'm in Kurzweil, when I open something up, it says wordpad. Like I'll just use an example, if it says page 10 I can find where that number is there is a line or two, forget how it works, now that way I know for me where I see a page break, but otherwise, I'm always afraid of messing a book up, and I'd hate for them to spit it back and say, what on earth did you do to this book? I just follow my Braille paper I wrote down when Mayrie helped me on the phone, that is all I understand, steps like that concrete that I can grab hold of, and know in my head.

What are you doing your proofreading in. It sounds like you might be using wordpad. That is what I started proofreading with. At that time my screen reader was JAWS 9 and I was lucky enough that it would read page breaks in wordpad on my first proofing. On subsequent proofings it did not read page breaks in wordpad, except for an occasional book, unless I moved over the page break with the arrow keys one line at a time. In the two upgrades of JAWS since, it will not read page breaks in Wordpad at all. I now do all my editing work in Open Book 6. That reads page breaks and allows me to add, remove and manipulate them just fine, but then, it is designed for that. Depending on what you are using for your proofing, you might be able to make a settings adjustment to read page breaks, but if you are using the current JAWS with Wordpad I think you may be out of luck.

This is something I do not understand.
Not downing myself, but just stating facts truly, I'm just stupid enough LOL that I would have no idea where or where not a page break even is. I would mess up a book so fast it would not be funny and I know how hard scanners work. So how in the world do you even tell such a thing, I just hear errors hear if there isn't a page number that kind of things. These things of knowing where lines end, page breaks, I don't even understand how you pick that up at all. That is why I had to release a book, I had no idea what the boss was talking about when they say insert pages breaks, I can fix misspelled words, all I'm going by is my hearing and it hears right to me if that makes sense. But had I put breaks in there? Oh my that book would have been so messed up nobody could have fixed it for serious real! I wish there was a way, if you find there is something you have not learned to do on a book, you could put it up with your work that was done so somebody who knows more could finish it. Yes I know they'd get the credit, but would beat all the work and then being stumped and having someone have to start over. For me, I do what Mayrie told me to do on the steps, have them written down in Braille in case I miss something. But that is all I know, and all for me I can know, cause if I get to much I am overwhelmed and you'd have a bigger book mess and my scans were a big enough mess, that is why I stopped that altogether plus my hands, and went to proofreading.

Hi Jim. Good question, and the answer is yes. In Kurzweil, pressing control enter will insert a page break, (a form feed), at the location of your cursor. If you ever need to merge two pages, you can press control shift enter. I hope this helps. If not, please let me know, and I'll try to help you better. (smile)

This was an interesting experience. When I downloaded the book, it supposedly had 106 pages. Actually it had 205 pages, not counting the front matter. So I repaginated it.

I did this by first saving the book as a text file. I then used my favorite Windows text editor, textpad. I removed all the form feeds, 0x0C characters, and then inserted form feeds in the appropriate places.

I'm wondering if there was an easier way to do this using K1000? I didn't find such a way looking through the Kurzweil manual.

 Thank you.
