[bksvol-discuss] Re: still more errors I'm finding and need to ask about

Hi, thanks, this is definitely not dialet related. I let those stay, but this is ridiculous. This is why I don't take time to scan much as there are so many things you can and should tweak and I've never had time to learn this stuff. I'm a medical transcriptionist, I proof all day, but thanks for the compliment. I found out that the file is a read only file and I don't know how to change this, so am not sure what I can do with this book after all. I thought I was getting an easy one as it said excellent, almost no errors, but it definitely needs a bath. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mayrie ReNae" <mrenae@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Jamie,

I would definitely fix hyphens where they shouldn't be.  And if
you're worried that something isn't right, you're likely right. Trust your
knowledge of how the English language works, and your intuition about
dialogue and I think you'll do swimmingly.

Also, if settings aren't set correctly in the OCR software, words that were
originally split on two lines won't have the connecting hyphens removed.
It's definitely okay, in my opinion to remove improperly placed hyphens
unless they reflect some sort of dialogue.

Just my opinion.

Mayrie

Hi, I'm finding words hyphenated like holding, confessed, and others. There
is even a sentence where it should say "two hundred dollars, and", and it
says two hundred dollarsmand.  Is it okay to fix this?  Thanks.
