[bksvol-discuss] Re: font size

Nancy, I hope by now you know to just leave the font size alone when using Kurzweil. ----- Original Message ----- From: "NANCY M HILL" <girlyscream@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Trying again,

Is it a common practice to change the size font a book has if you are the scanner?

Thanks,
Nancy

I'm not positive that I understand your question, but I'll try.

One can change font size and type in Word, and I do for chapter titles and places where the print book has enlarged type, e.g., for store signs in one book I validated, or newspaper headlines in another. But my scanner doesn't convert to the exact fonts that are in the book. For some of the validations I've done I've had to make enlarged fonts smaller because they don't fit on the page. I was told in the past that some don't fit properly on people's Braille readers or whatever they're using to read, also. I seem to remember, and hope I'm not wrong, that a size of 36 was the largest that would fit. Of course that would depend on the font style, because some are smaller than others, but to be safe I don't enlarge anything more than 36.

Is there a place where you can adjust font size?  Would you
adjust the font
size for any reason other to help you proof or validate the
book if you had
useable vision?

   Curtis,

  K1000 scans the print of the book at the size of the
print - which I
cannot read most of the time. When I first learned the
program, the Kurzweil
tech showed me how to set the size by magnification and I
did not even
notice the font or font size. Magnification does not change
anything at base
except what the scanner sees. It does not effect the final
size which is
what the book is in. All the corrections show up within the
original text in
the places  I put them. If there is a problem, I ask that
the
editor/validator  double check but most of the books I have
submitted have
been accepted as they were without going to step 2. If I am
really worried,
I make a note to have something checked for me so it will
go to step 2. If
not, I down load it when it is in the collection and double
check there.
Only once have I requested that the final form was bad
enough that I want it
sent back for rescanning and will be doing that soon.

    Fascinating, every book I've read using K1000, for
some reason, I did
not pay attention at all to the font or it's size. hmm!
:) Maybe I'm getting
... what? forgetful? or .. what? :)
