Hi Robert,

In Microsoft word, pressing alt+control+8 will turn on JAWS' announcement of
every space, paragraph mark and lots of other stuff.  JAWS calls a line
break  a paragraph mark.  I think that's what I remember.

        Remember that you don't want to get rid of ALL line breaks/paragraph
marks.  You need them at the beginning of real paragraphs.  What you need to
do is get rid of only paragraph marks preceding lower case letters.  

        Instructions for how to do this and still preserve blank lines
surrounding page numbers are in the message I sent recently that tells about
my preferred scanning and proofreading process.

Good luck!

Mayrie

breaks

Jamie,
        These are instances in books I have scanned and had rejected;
according to Word Perfect 12.0, they are linebreaks [HRt] is the character
it gives me, and there is one at the end of each line.  I do not have a
Braille display, and the rejection notes I have gotten on the four all said
linebreaks.
        What is the method in Microsoft Word to get JAWS to tell me a
linebreak character is there so I could try a global replace?
        I'm sorry to have so many questions; all my scanning in the past has
just been for me, and using a BookPort for the last several years to read
them.  BookPort doesn't care about the linebreaks, but the Victor Streams
(which I just got) appears to, as it makes the reading jerky.
                        Robert

Also, Robert, you might not be dealing with the ^l line break. You might be
dealing with paragraph breaks at the end of each line, so that the text
looks like it does in the printed book.

When I have seen that, what I have tried to do is determine if there are 2
or more paragraph breaks ^p between the paragraphs. If so, I have changed
all instances of ^p^p^p to a qqq, or if there aren't usually 3 together then
just the ^p^p to a qqq. Then I change single ^p to a space. Then I change
all the qqq back to ^p^p^p and I make sure to change all of the ^m to a
^p^m^p because changing those gives you the blank lines before and after
hard page breaks.

This will ONLY work if paragraphs are separated by at least two paragraph
breaks. If they aren't, you're better off rejecting the book than you are
trying to change only the correct ^p to a space.
