[bksvol-discuss] Re: Peculiarity on purpose

Hi Valerie,
 
I'm not sure I understand.  In short, if it's supposed to be an ellipsis,
I'd unite it.  If only two periods, well, that's just weird.  Two periods in
any context will mess up any young reader, and two periods just read weird
for anyone.

I get what you are talking about, Mayrie, but these are only TWO periods all
separated by spaces and am afraid they will mess up children Braille
readers.

Hi Valerie,
 
I really think the spaced out ellipsis are just for printing purposes, kind
of like justified print.  And if you don't make them into three periods
without spaces between them, with a space on each side, they will read all
kinds of wrong in braille, nothing like what they should look like.  Will
you please unite all periods for ellipsis?
 
We braille readers would truly thank you!

I am working on one of the Louis Slobodkin children's books (they are really
fun to read!), and notice something very odd.  When an ellipsis is at the
end f the line, it is the usual three periods.  However, when mid-sentence,
it is a space period space period space and I cannot decide if for
readability it is permissible to place a currently acceptable ellipsis or if
it is like a misspell that needs to be retained as in print.  It will be
very annoying to audio or Braille readers, I would think...
