Hi everyone,
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.
