Mayrie, That's a good reminder and gives a good perspective to the issue!

Hi Julie,

I have felt bad about asking repeatedly too.  I don't know why, but
books with this issue seem to arrive from my library in batches. Weird. But once, a sighted volunteer told me not to worry so much about asking for help
on such a small thing.  What she said to me is that if she's going to the
library, then picking up one more book is no big deal. And for her it takes ten minutes to send me a list of chapter headings. She didn't think that it
was a huge job, unlike me, who felt as though I kept asking for too much
help.  So, maybe look at it this way? If no one wants to help, they won't
offer.  That way, you don't have to feel bad because no one's arm got
twisted. And if no one wants to help, well, at least the numbers are there.

Just my thoughts.

Mayrie

I agree, and actually, I know where the chapter titles should be because
I have the numbers. It was just the titles that didn't scan because of
the font. I was thinking the same thing, but I guess I just felt bad
because this is the second book in a row that I've done like that.

Hi Julie,

I personally do not like it when a book is missing chapter titles.
The simplest thing to do is to ask if anyone sighted can get a copy of the
book, then tell you on what page each chapter begins, and the name of the
chapter.  That way you kill two birds with one stone, you know exactly
where
the chapter titles should go, and what they should be.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Question about chapter titles

I have a question regarding chapter titles. I just finished a book in
which some of the chapters had titles that didn't scan because of font.
Well, wouldn't you know it, I'm working on another one of the same type,
where the numbers scanned but junk scanned where there might be titles.
is this really important? My perfectionistic side screams that I need
someone else to help with this book as well, but as long as I have the
numbers, are the chapter titles really that important? I want my books
to reflect the printed copy as much as I can, but two books in a row
with the same problem...?<smile> Thanks for any feedback.
