[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Breaks

HI Melissa,

Since ^m showed you the donging thingy as the next page break, I'd assume
that it is indeed the next page break.  I do wonder why the dong, instead of
the normal response to passing a page break.  But computers are animals
which I only vaguely understand.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Page Breaks

Question regarding page breaks. I know there's a difference between hard and
soft page breaks, and I know how my screenreader reports the difference.
However, in the book I'm currently proofing, I've come across something
strange. When I read past this one particular page break, I hear a dong.
Normally, I would hear page break for a hard page break. A soft break would
simply say page 7 and then on the next line say page 8. So, I placed my
cursor a few lines above this page break and did a search for ^m to find the
next page break. The donging page break is the next occurrence of ^m that
was encountered. So, can I safely assume that this is a hard page break?

Thanks,

Melissa
