[bksvol-discuss] Re: italics


Thank you but that's not the problem or the question. I have sighted help and have copied the sentence. My question is, this is going to make a real change in the print copy so the sighted reader (dyslexic etc.) will miss the way it looks in the book entirely. This is why I am asking how others are dealing with this issue. But thanks again for your offer. You know I won't hesitate to ask you for help when I need it; you are always so generous.

What is the book, Jill? If I can get it, I can send you the sentence italicized.

I have been following the discussion on the list about
making italics but
have done nothing about it so far; this is partly because
Kurzweil does such
a good job reading them and although it would be nice, I
didn't think it was
all that important making the italics available in braille
since they
wouldn't be shown in the speech version either.  Now,
however, I am
confronted with an example that Kurzweil can't read and
it's fairly long. I
can retype it but, of course, the effect will be lost for
the sighted
reader. I would really welcome being told what others are
doing in similar
situations. I think it is virtually impossible to
accommodate the three
readinggroups who use Bookshare. I wonder how  the staff
doing scanning
would handle this situation. Any comments would be welcome.
