[bksvol-discuss] Re: just submitted S is for Silence,

Hi Sarah,

I do use kurzweil 1000. It does indeed have a setting for light text on a dark background. So often that isn't enough so I do a lot of trial and error with search engine and light setting and eventually get a pretty good result. You would think that just setting it for light text on a dark backgground would be all you would have to do, but not always so. There is also an optimize setting which I have tried with mixed results. Anyway it's fun and a challenge.

Scanning light text on a dark background doesn't seem to work quite as well as the other way around, but it does work. Kurzweil, and I'm sure every other scanning program, has a setting for that purpose, so the only thing required is to check the option before scanning.

Dear Bud,

I just remembered my first task is to make sure your book isn't already in the collection, just to be safe. Why am I telling you this? Just because I'm so glad that I've learned so much more about validating!

I've wondered about scanning white type on a dark background. I applaud your perseverance.

Always With Love,

Lissi

Hi Lissi,

Thanks for your confidence in my scanning. I always do try to get a clean scan. The inside cover gave me a lot of trouble since it was white type on black. By fooling around with the settings I finally got a good scan and just had to touch it up a bit in a few places. Enjoy, I thought it was great.

Dear Bud,

I have taken S is for Silence to Validate. I've read all of the other books in this series and am a big fan! I was so anxious that it took 6 times to get my password right in logging on! I have a couple of books that need doing before I start this one, but one has 70 pages to go and the other is a short, children's book, so I should get a good start by Friday.

I'm pleased because I remembered advice I've read on this list and followed it for the first time. I copied your download page for S is for Silence for future reference when I prepare to upload the book.

It sounds like you took pains to submit a good scan. thanks for that and don't worry if I have fixing to do as that's my job. Let's just hope I do well by this book.

Always With Love,

Lissi

Hi gang.

I just submitted S is for Silence by Sue Grafton. It is the 19th in a series of mysteries and I thought was very interesting. It scanned real well and I did some things to it like fixing it where a word was devided between pages. It's about 375 pages.
Happy validating
