Hi, everyone! I've been out of town, and I've had quite a time sending and
receiving e-mail. I've managed to keep up with all the list traffic,
though, thankfully! <Smile>
I am so glad to know that I'm not the only one who has noticed the scannos in Web Braille (and I assume hardcopy Braille) books. I've also noticed them, and I've noticed that punctuation is often omitted. Maybe they're trying to save space in hardcopy books, but they're certainly doing a disservice to braille readers, especially students. Just my humble opinion! <Smile> Happy reading!
Obviously, the proofreader fell down on the job. You might want to report this to Judy Dixon; I don't know what the criteria are but I know that there are times when NLS has the company producing the book re-do it.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT. scanning errors in Web Braille books?
I don't know if this is unusual, or if I'm just more tuned into this type of thing now and didn't notice before. But I found some definite scanning errors in a book I was reading from web braille. Did you bum that, instead of did you burn that? And dean laundry, instead of clean laundry. Definite scanner errors. I don't know how I thought NLS books were produced but I didn't really think the originals were scanned.
