[bksvol-discuss] Re: superscript and subscript

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

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.
