[bksvol-discuss] Re: k1000 question

Thanks everyone, but after a few more sentences i just rejected it. I realize people can't scan things accurately a hundred percent of the time, but if the brightness affects your scan and you just submit it anyway, it's not worth wasting time on. I understand if this was just an isolated thing, but there's also odd letters at the beginning of pages, some of which had two sentences before the next page began. Overall, It's rejected and I'll look for another one. Thanks though. ----- Original Message ----- From: "E." <thoth93@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

If the only problem with the bookis line endings at the ends of lines, please fix that with Jake's tip before uploading. Such line endsing may be acceptable to bookshare but drive braille readers. Personally , fI were you instead of rejecting, send it back to step 1 and somebody who has cleaned up this line ending problem may want to take it. You can, of course, use Jake's tip to clean it yourself if you want to do that.

Hi Siobhan,

Are you ready for another novela?

I had this problem. It is very likely that the scanner had his reading settings set to respect line endings when he scanned the book. That will cause exactly what you are talking about. You can test it by going into the settings menu, arrowing down to reading, and setting your K1000 to read the book with line endings respected by the editor. If your problem clears up, you know that this is the case.

In an ideal world, you don't want books scanned like this. In the rtf document that you will later upload, , there will be paragraph markers at the end of what was originally the end of each printed line. Bookshare will accept books scanned like this, and if the scan of the book is otherwise fine, you can keep it. If the scan isn't all that good, it's your call.

The preferred setting is to have line endings ignored by k1000's editor so that paragraph markers only appear where an actual paragraph begins.

I am sure that I could rattle on more about this, and will if you want further rattling, but I think that might answer your question. If you want more info, just ask.

And, by the way, did you manage to open a daisy file using K1000, or did you decide not to bother?

Okay, I'm shutting up now.

Peace,
Mayrie

Hi all. I hope this is ok to ask here, I asked on the speciffic list and didn't get an answer. I'm trying to read Keeping Silent, which I might still reject, and I can't get it to read smoothly. I've now set it to read by line, and not pause at the end of the paragraph. i've tried all three settings, and it makes eloquence still choppy almost as though it has trouble reading. If you can help me fix this, I'd appreciate it.
Talk soon,
Siobhan
