[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Breaks

It could be there is a control character (something that is supposed to tell the computer to do something, rather than a text character) right before or after the page break. Is the dong the same sound your computer makes when you have done something wrong? That would be a good indication it is a control character.


If there are blank lines before and after the page break, I would select everything from the first blank line after the text on page 7 to the last blank line before the text on page 8 (or whatever the correct pages are) and delete them. Then put a blank line, page break, blank line back in.

Chances are you don't really need to do this since the bookshare converter should strip any control characters out. But, if you just want to get rid of that noise, that should do it.

Okay. I decided to move character by character to examine it more closely. I have attribute changes on, so I can hear changes in font. Well, The document is in times new roman, the normal page breaks are in tahoma, and the donging page break is in arial . Not sure why, but I'm guessing that has something to do with why it dongs.

Mayrie, I agree with you. Occasionally we get the dong sound rather than the words page break, but the hard page break symbol is there. I would love to know why the dong occurs, but I have no clue.

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
