I won't talk about my wishes if you were told Kurzweil users should not, 
but I am not governed by any non-disclosure agreement, since I am not a 
beta tester and have no other affiliation with Kurzweil Educational 
Systems. :-)  Fortunately it is a company that welcomes input from anyone 
with the desire to give it.
Also remember that the big improvement I mentioned, about binding shadow, 
was posted to this list by the company and therefore ceased to be a secret 
quite a while ago.  If I'm in trouble for mentioning Kurzweil 10, then I'm 
sorry, but it is hard for an intelligent person who had math classes all 
the way up to 10th grade to not see the likelihood that after version 9 
comes version 10. LOL

Children,  I should not have even posted publicly that I was going to make 
a feature suggestion for K.  Please do not discuss any feature that may or 
may not be currently in development in any software. This is a public 
forum and beta discussions are not public.  They are typically governed by 
Non Disclosure Agreements. 

Let's all be good. 

Thanks, 

Guido

Thank you, those suggestions would be very much appreciated. 
  
Kurzweil is already working on the number one scanning issue, which is 
binding shadow removal.  Now if they can create a tool to get rid of 
problem number two, header/page number problems, I'll be one thrilled 
person. 
  
I talked to Stephen Baum at Closing the Gap last year, and suggested the 
addition of more advanced search features.  I would like it to allow you 
to turn on an option to allow for regular expression searches.  Who knows 
if that will happen, but it sounded like searching for page breaks would 
be possible, and that would help with some junk removal procedures.  It 
just isn't likely that we could search for blank pages by looking for two 
page breaks in a row, because of the way Kurzweil works by loading one 
page at a time, but That doesn't seem that important to me anyway. :-) 
 
  
In my dreams I would be able to make the macro for cleaning up books that 
I am trying to make in Word for Kurzweil 10 instead. <BG>  I expect that 
procedure to stay strictly in my dreams, though.

Yes,  it would be nice if K1K could convert Daisy page headers into KES 
page headers.  Then they could be read/ignored/stripped by the user at 
will. 
I will suggest this to K.

Hi Guido, 
Thanks for the info about not being able to access Daisy tags with 
Kurzweil. That's what I was beginning to think, but I wanted to be sure I 
wasn't missing something. So basically what this means is that the page 
numbers aren't even always accessible if someone is using the unconverted 
Daisy format unless they're using an official Daisy reader. Well, the one 
available from Bookshare that's free seems to have more bugs than an ant 
farm, and the rest of them cost money, often a fortune. Apparently page 
numbers are a luxury good.
