A comment on the strings of spaces.
After scanning a book with Kurzweil, I save it as an rtf file, then open
it with Words and tell it to find four spaces and replace it with two. I
repeat the search until I get zero replacements. Usually three runs. I then
tell it to find three spaces and replace with two. . This is only one run.
I then save the file and submit it to Bookshare, with absolutely no trouble.
This can be done directly in Kurzweil, but the number of spaces must be
entered each time In the find box.
As to the length of the short synopsis, after writing the short synopsis
as a separate file in Kurzweil, I go into properties from the file menu and
check the number of characters, and edit until it is under two hundred.
Many times I is misrecognized as the number 1. I search for space 1 space
and replace it if it is wrong. If there are too many I do a global replace
figuring only a few 1's will be separated by spaces and several mistakes
are better than a hundred
We all learn from experience, and after four years and submitting over
fifteen hundred books, I am still learning. I would be glad to hear from
any one who has validated my submissions and let me know if they see any
way I can improve them.
