[bksvol-discuss] Re: question on picture captions

Hi Lissi!

That was a good description of the decision from the Bookshare workshop.

I hope anyone who is describing pictures includes the name of the person in the picture after the author has brought him or her into the story by mentioning his or her name. I can see how the story could be spoiled with a mention of the pictured person by the describer before the author reveals the person's identity, especially if there is any mystery in the story, not necessarily limiting my thoughts to the genre of mystery.

Hi Booksharian Friends,

In a workshop Bookshare held on picture description, we were advised to identify characters only after they are identified in the book.Once they are introduced, using their names in descriptions is very helpful. If I haven't explained enough, I will be glad to elaborate.

Allways with love,

Lissi

I would prefer to know who the person is, if you can tell by looking at the
picture.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] question on picture captions

If you know who is in a picture based on the story, do you identify them by
name or do you label them by sex and age like "young boy" or "woman" so that
the picture is text independent?

Often when I am proofing the second is done, but I am inclined instead to
name the person. How does everyone feel about this and what are preferences?

Thanks for your help and input!
