[bksvol-discuss] Re: another formatting question

Hi, Cindy.

I read my books with speech, and I have never noticed any difference depending on how lines are justified. However, the gaps between words might be a pain for Braille users, so maybe left justifying is the way to go.

The reason the fully justified lines have large spaces between words is because the word processor is trying to line both the right and left margins up perfectly straight, and so it moves words around to make this happen. I can remember seeing what this looks like when I read print and it could look kind of funky. <smiles>

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] another formatting question



I'm asking this belatedly, having been validating
books for several years (I've forgotten how many, and
my profile doesn't say when I started), but as I
looked at a line in the file i'm validating now---

In some book files the alignment of the text is
justified, and in others it's flush left. I usually
leave it as it is, and when I submit a book I make it
flush left. Looking at the justified lines, I realized
suddenly that there are sometimes large spaces between
words--this never happens when the text is flush left.
Does it make a  difference to you braille and audio
readers? Would flush left be better? I don't remember
that the instructions ever said.
