[bksvol-discuss] Re: superscript and subscript

Evan,

We will be interested to know what you find out about subscript and super script. We use Window Eyes as a speech program and I don't know if it identifies those attributes. Thus far, both Mike and I have been validating in Open Book; does it recognize the attributes? Ocasionally, I hear a number after a word or sentence and know that it is a super script footnote number; have deleted that number and entered the same number at the end of the sentence. However, we have not identified any words or partial words in sub or super script; I doubt we have missed any in the books we have validated; at least, we sure hope not!

I am looking into what the Braille translator does with them directly. The one instance I found in a book I submitted came out rather strangely, although it is still recognizable as a superscript. For Braille readers, it says: and-sign sup-number sign 2, followed immediately by the number 20 in Nemeth code. But someone with whom I often work says that she adds superscripts regularly for notes, so it looks as it does in the print book. We're going to try to look at some examples today if possible and see what they look like in the brf versions. I have been simply going on what I have read here, so I want to find out directly. That one example is not enough to go on.

I'll report back today or tomorrow on what I have found.

Good idea!! I hope I remember it, because it's much
easier to do that then fix them one at a rime as I've
been doing. smile Thanks, Evan.

P.S. I'll bet that will also work for raised and
lowered letters that I've been putting back to normal
one incident at a time.

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.
