[bksvol-discuss] Re: Table Of Contents

Hi everyone!

Here is a table of contents with the dot leaders as I found it. I didn't insert anything.

How does it look for you sighted readers?

How does it come out on a braille display?

How does it sound to those who use screen readers?

Window-Eyes, at least the way I have it set totally ignores these dot leaders. If I add periods like this on a line:

......
 Window-Eyes also ignores them.

Here's the table of contents.

Hi Judy and Valerie,

        Inserting an elipsis between items in a table of contents and their
respective page numbers will work.  Any more dots than that would be a
potential nightmare for those reading with speech.  Because in the dot
leader format the screen readers  might well read "dot dot dot dot dot" etc
depending upon the amount of punctuation each user has spoken.  So, if an
elipsis would work for sighted readers better than just a space, I'm happy
to begin inserting an elipsis instead.

Thanks, Valerie, for telling us how we can make things at least a little
more usable for some folks.

Mayrie

I agree with Valerie.  It is a torture to figure out tables of contents
visually with just the single space.  I'm perfectly happy with an ellipsis
instead of the space, as an idea.  I can't see any way that trying to
figuour out how many periods to put in to make the right margin on each
line, as is done with a printed book, will make sense or be anything but a
nightmare to do if you're blind.  Having an ellipsis in makes it perfectly
readable for me visually.

Golly, I hope I'm making sense. I had some major dental surgery today and we
had to use enough anesthesia to bring an elephant down.  So I'm a bit loopy!
