[bksvol-discuss] Re: font Question

Hi Cindy,
 
Nothing about size has changed:
20 for title
18 for parts 
16 for chapters
14 for sections
12 for the body of the text.
 
No change to worry about!

This info is good to know. I've  changed Arial to Time New Roman because I
thought that was what was required. I have to magnify to 200% to  proof.
I'll kep the Arial now that I know I can. Arial 12 point for text, 18, 26,
14 for  sections, chapter tiels and subheadings (we don't use 20 any more
for?

HI Reggie,
 
Nope, Times New Roman isn't required, just one font of your choosing,
usually something simple to read.  Since you are a braille reader, if I
remember correctly, it really doesn't mattter to you as a proofreader which
font.  If you like and are used to Ariel, continue using that.
 
As I said, it's not which font that matters, but that it be one font
throughout the book with proper sizing as you described in your previous
note.
 
Times New Roman is just what we recommend to sighted proofreaders as it is
very easy to read and be clear about what a sighted proofreader is seeing.
Low vision proof readers prefer Ariel.  It's up to the proofreader which
font he/she chooses, as long as it's all the same font.
 
Hope that helps.
 
Mayrie

Mary:
Since I still have my nose out of my hole, are we now required to put the
books in Times New Roman? Easy enoughto do, but when Lessie spent oh so much
time and patience on me we used Arial.  I have not gotten a book back yet
with Arial, but perhaps this is a new rule it has to be Times New Roman?

Hi Mayrie,
 
Many thanks!  Both for the confirmation and the words of encouragement.  LOL
I'm a very thorough, detail-oriented person by nature, so wanted to
double-check.  *smile*  I appreciate the help and support very much!
 
Warmest,
Kim

HI Kim,
 
Absolutely!  You can and should change font and standardize it, then bold
and enlarge where necessary!  You've got the process well in hand!
 
Happy proofreading!
 
Mayrie

Hi All,
 
Well, I'm just about to begin proofing my first Bookshare book!  *gulps*
Before I did it, I wanted to familiarize myself with the steps, and, as much
as possible, get comfortable with them.  I know practice and the routine of
doing them over and over for books will make it easier.  Hahaha.  Hopefully
after successfully completing this one, I won't feel so daunted.  *sheepish
grin*
 
My question is about the font.  This particular book has a font that my Word
2003 doesn't have installed, so it said it would show me the closest font
available.  I understand that Times New Roman is an easy font to read, and
know from the documentation that it's a recommended font.  I already know
that I can't change text.  But is it okay to change the type of font.  In
other words, could I select the entire content of the rtf, change it to
times new roman 12 point, and then change the size of particular chapter
titles, book title, etc, as required?
 
Any info is very much appreciated!
 
Thanks much!
 
Kim
