I totally support the below message.I read for enjoyment. If I have to add in unfamiliar codes I may enjoy it less.
Some examples of what engineering wants may help. Given the differences in volunteer experience, we may want to make the whole thing as intuitive and self-explanatory as we can.
Pneumonics and such may be valuable.I use Kurzweil to validate first (rank spell, remove headers do some global replaces to protect page numbers. Then I move the rtf to a braillenote and read through the book entirely.
Let me also add apologies to anyone who wishes them. I sometimes am blunt. I am practicing tact.

Hi all. I like Monica's suggestions. I am also a Kurzweil editor. I have no desire whatever to learn about html, and I know from experience that using Word to look for random changes in font is extremely difficult if not impossible. Totally blind people certainly can deal with and work around font issues, but knowing what to look for is unimaginable to me. I mean, would we have some kind of list with all the publishers and what fonts and text attributes they use for everything? Otherwise, how would anyone figure something like that out. Also, as Jake pointed out, OCR tends to lose font information or get it wrong quite often. Even with the book in hand, how would a blind person figure that out without sighted assistance? I would be willing to use a simple markup system, but if I have to learn html and spend hours on agonizing over ethereal font information count me out!Kellie To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
