Amy, You can select the entire book in K1000 by using control-a. Then go into the Format menu as before and use the Font dialog box to disable bold throughout the book. It will take just a few moments. I tried it on a 200-page book, and it took less than 15 seconds. If your book is substantially longer, you may need to give it a minute or two to do the whole thing. If you hit the control key while it is reformatting the text, it will tell you how many pages have been reformatted so far if it isn't done yet.

There are some words legitimately in "bold" print in the book I am working on but very few. If it were possible, if I could set the format/font for the whole book I could eliminate all of the bold print and then insert it in those rare places where it is needed and legitimate. The same would be true of a change in font size. as all the page headings come out in bold and larger size than needed. Now that I now how I have been emboldened to debold all of them as they are noticeable only to the sighted and I find them more of a distraction as they are. The headings themselves are helpful since there are 17 stories in this collection and while they are different I do find it helpful to remind myself which one I am reading. The page numbers are in so small and light a print that if I did not add them in most cases they would not be there or what is there is not a clear, correct number. I was changing them as I scanned but it takes so long that way I will wait until I validate before correcting them. I just check to make sure that each page has a limited number of corrections needed - which I plan to do myself - or I will rescan until it comes out as close to flawless as possible. Thus a preliminary correction throughout to get the font and print correct would be enormously timesaving, The K-1000's word correction has been a lifesaver for just that.

Hit Enter on that and you will get a submenu with Font as the first entry. Hit Enter on Font and a dialog box will open. Tab through it and, among other things such as type of font and size, you will hear K1000 say whether the selected text is bolded, italicized, or not, or whether some is and some is not. You can use the up and down arrows to disable or enable bold and italics on the piece of text you have selected. This will let you create bold or italic text wherever you want, and remove it wherever you want.

I don't know how to undo italics and bold print where they should not be nor how to put them in with Kurzweil. Well, to make a long story short, my allergy to WinZip showed up when I downloaded the book and not only could not unzip it but could not find it where I thought I put it and eventually what I had was garbage that had to be deleted. It is not listed in the validation queue so I believe it is still listed as my having it so if nothing else it should show up after 7 days but if anyone has found it and wants to finish the job feel free as what I submitted was excellent except for the 2 problems I mention above and which may be solved by the Bookshare programming - I think/hope/guess. But would you please let me know that it has been found. I wrote John about it but got no reply and am not sure I sent it to the right address but I put a lot of time and effort into it and before I start on The Mansion I want to be sure that the previous volumes have been accepted so I won't repeat any mistakes. The Town should show up in the Download list for review by this weekend. Amy Faulknerite and omsm.
