[bksvol-discuss] Re: I learn something new

Hey Sue,
This is more directed at the group than you, but your msg brings up a good point. I'm sure BookShare is somewhat less willing to update information about upcoming changes because then there is an expectation. In other words, people start complaining as to when its coming. It's not that it isn't coming, it is, it just takes more time than some would like. Keep in mind BookShare is working on getting the $$ for upgrades, and until that money is in less happens.
Validation instructions will be much more comprehensive and putting them together is being done by volunteers, so they're not at this for many hours a day, hehe. The instructions of course will have to go through Janice and Gustavo to make sure they are as correct as they possibly can be. There's no use releasing new instructions if they're aren't precise, accurate and clear.


BookShare has told us that engineering is working on producing page numbers in the BRF format, attempting to modify the software and how it works does take time. Other enhancements are definitely on the drawing board I'm sure.

Patience Patience *grin* Again, this msg is not directed at Sue, the group as a whole. And Sue if you didn't mean your comment as angry, I didn't take it as such just thought I should point some of this out.

Elizabeth,
    I've posted these suggestions before. Here's my procedure and it does
seem to work, I just downloaded five or six recent submissions and looked
at
them in Kurzweil. Page numbers were not present, but that's a Kurzweil
issue
not a BookShare one.

A. If the book has running headers

Put a fake one above the chapter heading. When I say fake I don't mean put
a
bunch of stars, follow the pattern of the book.
If the book has chapter titles on odd numbered pages, and the chapter
starts
on an odd page, put the chapter title above it.

B. If books have all page numbers next to the running headers, except on
the
chapter page its at the bottom, you should reposition the page number to
the
proper place in the dummy header.

C. If the book has no headers and page numbers are at the bottom of the
page, you should split the chapter onto two lines. For example

Chapter One

should be written

Chapter
One

This presumably will not be counted as a header because it is more than
just
a single line of text.

This last one has been the most difficult for me to verify. The first two
I
have seen work.

The new validation instructions will hopefully include more
examples/explanation.

Best,
Jake
