[bksvol-discuss] Re: Part 1, Chapter 1 and Point Size

Hi Debby,

I don't think there's a one size fits all method here. If your chapters have sections, then you would need to make the chapters 16 point, so you can make the section titles 14 point so they will still be navigable for Daisy readers. But the book I'm finishing up for Bookshare now has parts, which I put at 18 point, then subparts, which I put at 16 point, then chapters with no subsections; so I put those at 14 point.

However, just to make things complicated, <grin>, if a book is just basically a bunch of chapters with no subsections, then I tend to put the chapters at 16 point, even if there are no subsections. If you ask why, I would have to say that I just got into the habit of doing it that way, and I don't know whether I will change it.

Hi Evan!

Thanks for your response!

Your way is winning out. That makes sense, since parts are bigger sections than chapters, so I'll use 12 for the text as always, and, are you saying 14 point for chapters and 16 point for parts? I think that's what I'll do.

I make Part headings larger than Chapter headings because they are larger sections of the book. If the chapters have sections, I make them smaller than the chapter titles.

I generally use two point differentials, rather than the four point ones that Lynn uses, but I don't think that is a big deal. As far as I know, the Daisy navigation will work for two point differences, although on the other hand, four point differences may be easier to see.

Hi Debby!

That's the way I do it. *smile* Others may do it differently, though. I
seldom use a 14 point font. I always have 4 points of separation (12-16).

Hi everyone!

I just started to proofread "Twink".  There is:

PART ONE

Chapter One

and then the first line of the chapter.


Do the part1 line and the chapter 1 line get the same point size of 16?

Thanks!

Debby
