[bksvol-discuss] Re: Navigating the Online Manual

the vertical bar shows on my braille display as a backslash. This is not necessarily a complaint, just for your information. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Scott Rains" <scottr@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Sorry, TOC is library-speak for Table of Contents.

We have an additional way of accessing the start of each chapter. It is the navigation bar found at the top and bottom of each page.

We know that what we use to mark the transition between chapter titles does not translate well into Braille. The symbol is called a vertical pipe and looks like this:

We are looking for an alternative that serves both sighted and Braille-using readers. Suggestions welcome.

I am not quite sure I follow here.

Clearly you are all encountering something similar that disrupts
navigability for you. The first link on the TOC takes you to the start of
each chapter. Why not just scroll down the page from there?

Is the issue that scanning the through a detailed TOC is too much? That
that the "Go Back" links scattered throughout the chapter text too
intrusive or something else entirely?

Thanks

Hi Lori,
That's what I thought when I read the manual a couple days ago.

Stacey, I agree with you; in an online version, it would be much easier to
navigate with headings or lists.

Laurrie,
I'd like to see everything on proofreading in one section. Not split by
various links. Maybe it could have headings instead.

Hi, Everyone,

Am I the only one who finds this online manual that we are reviewing this
week to be extremely cumbersome to navigate?
I am reviewing Section 4 about Proofreading, and whenever I complete
reading one small section, I wish there were a link that said "next" so
that I could just proceed.
Am I missing some simple way to read through this document subsection
after subsection?
I am not a novice at reading documents with links and other internet
materials, but this manual prompts me to feel like a total beginner!
Any thoughts appreciated.

Lori C.
