I connect them. I'm a transcriber, and that was one thing mentioned in NLS's
manual. There should not be any words split between pages.

No, Mayrie, you explained it perfectly!

Actually, that leads me to something I want to confirm.  I learned from
another site I had volunteered for that if a page is ended with a hyphenated
word (optional hyphen), then that word should not be split, but completed on
one of the two pages.  Is that correct on Bookshare?  I hope so, because
that's what I've been doing:-)

Hi Denise,

        I think the optional hyphen is the hyphen that appears at the end of
a line of text in the print book, but since when you OCR the lines aren't
the same length as they were in the printed book necessarily, those
remaining hyphens from the printed text in the book are optional.  Does that
make sense?  I feel like I've botched that description somehow.

What's an optional hyphen!

Hi Jamie and all,

        I'm so glad that you mentioned optional hyphens! I have my OCR
automatically remove those, so forgot completely that they can be a problem.
They aren't even on my list of stuff to worry about, which isn't a good idea
for anyone else using my list of things that I do. 

        I love good advice! 

Mayrie

I change optional hyphens (^- in word) to nothing. I also change tabs to
spaces but not until I've done a "find" to look for the tabs, because often
where there is a tab is a problem spot in the scanning. Sometimes the page
scanned crooked and the text is a little off or has lots of hard returns in
it where there are a lot of tabs. In word I also look for al occurences of
-^p (hyphen hard return) and fix those.
 
Mayrie will have a good list for you that she regularly uses.
