[bksvol-discuss] Re: Proofing: Many Questions

Hi Jim,
 
We're not supposed to guess.  Sometimes, the best we can do is to separate
dialogue into its own paragraphs, following rules of grammar and
punctuation, and leaving others unified where we would not leave them that
way.  Only someone with a print copy of the book can do this completely
accurately.
 
It's possible that you can get help from someone with a print copy of the
book, or by using books.google.com to look at snippets of the book.  
Sorry I can't be more helpful.
 
Mayrie

Hi Mayrie,

Even if it's my best guess?

 

Thanks.

Hi Jim,

 

Yes, often OCR runs paragraphs together.  Please insert paragraph marks
where they belong.

Hi,

I'm getting back into proofing after a very long absence. 

 

First question: Should I put in paragraph breaks if it looks like the scan
jammed everything together? It seems obvious from context that paragraphs
are run together.

 

Thanks.

 

Jim
