Jamie,

I guess I missed it, but what is the name of the book you are validating and who is the author?

Also, it will really help you to read through the volunteer manual.

Hi Jamie,

If you upload that book, it will go directly to the administration
queue for approval and addition to the Bookshare collection. If you release
it now, all of your hard work will be lost.  If you and Cindy want to work
on the book together, hang onto it, and you guys will have to talk about
what needs fixing either via e-mail or the phone, or some other way.

Hi, Cindy, you and I can still work together on the book.  I fixed some
hyphens and a few obvious spelling errors while preserving dialect things,
but I'd like you to look at the introductionary material and the material at

the end after the actual book is done to see that it's punctuated right.
I'll give you a holler when I'm ready to upload so you can grab it and
eyeball it before it goes out.  I also got all the morns that were mom and
fixed those, but there is another bigtime error in the first 25 pages that
is a word that the OCR didn't recognize properly or fully that needs a
little TLC. Thanks for helping me clean this one up. I'll read it tomorrow

straight through and make sure nothing obvious needs to be cleaned before I
upload it.  My hands are hurting from finding and replacing all the morns
and dashes but I did it.  Thanks again.  Have a blessed day.

Jamie,

The book is supposedly in my branch and I'll get it tomorrow if it is. Asa

Roger says, most of the misplaced commas should be deleted. They probably
occurred when the submitter lengthened the line and so words that were
hyphenated at the end of the line were no longer at the end of the line
but still retained the hyhphen. However, some of those errors that you
mention may in fact be ones the character is making herself, and so should

be kept. The "two hundred dollarsmand" is caused by someone hitting the
"m" instead of the comma. They are right together on the keyboard and it's

something I do all the time. If the submitter had spell-checked that error

should have shown up and been corrected. Maybe "dollarsand" did show up
and the submitter tried to correct it by inserting a comma and goofed and
then, of course, didn't do a second spell-check having assumed that
everything was o.k. That's why books are validated by a second person.

That's also why we valdiators read the books. smile. I'm glad it's
interesting.

If I can get the book I'll contact you off list and we can work together
and I'll keep the book until you're ready to upload. It's good that you
have one with problems to work on. smile You'll become more expert at
validating. smile

Cindy

Morn for mom is a pretty common scanno; fix it. I think that
most of the
misplaced hyphens are the same, but without knowing the
context I can't say that
they are not some kind of intentional cutesynes. Let's
see what the others
have  to say about that. In a message dated 8/21/2008
