Another thing I just thought of is that she could select the whole text and if any of the text is super- or subscripted, it will say so in the Font dialogue box in Word. Then she can just uncheck either or both of them and desuperscript and desubscript everything. They should be removed because the Braille translator does not handle them well, if at all. I forget what happens exactly, but they will definitely not appear as they should in the Braille version. I can't speak to the Daisy version.

Monica, I'm curious as to how superscript reads in Jaws. In the sentence in the page Terra sent me to look at, the letters e a r in the word year were in subscript, i.e., small and raised above the line, as footnotes often are in books. People have written here that they prefer to have footnote numbers written on the line after the period in the sentence, and without parentheses (all this detail for newbies) so I assume that superscript numbers are read differently in Jaws or braille or both. How would parts of a word read? I will say, for Terra, she's persistent and courageous. This is only her second validation effort, and based on the page she sent me, there are lots of different kinds of problems. She's going to learn a lot from this one book. smile Cindy Cindy --- Monica Willyard <rhyami@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi, Terra. Now that's a question I've never been asked. I don't have a clue, and I'm not sure it matters in the final product since a lot of extra formatting is stripped out. For example, all tabs are removed. I know they keep the bold text attribute, but I have no idea what they do with things like fonts or italics in text. I just proofread the document for accuracy and let the Bookshare tools sort out things like fonts unless the book is in a giant font that Jaws can't read. Then I select all text and adjust it to 16 point Times New Roman and keep moving. Jaws can't read text in a font size of somewhere around 32 or larger, so that forces me to adjust the font size. Other than that, I figure I have enough trouble proofreading the text without trying to sort out how the text appears on the screen. Maybe someone else here has a better idea of how to help you.
