Hi Roger, Uh, you have a problem. Wordpad isn't recommended to be used for validating Bookshare books. It has problems either displaying or retaining page breaks. I'd recommend using Microsoft Word, or Kurzweil 1000. If you have access to either of those applications, I'd be happy, as I'm sure others will to help you use the "find" dialogue which is used to search for text, which was, after all, the subject of your message. Congratulations on your determination!And I do recommend taking a look at the Volunteer Manual on the Bookshare site. It really has some helpful information for validators in it.

I am currently using wordpad. In a message dated 7/20/2008 10:04:39 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, mbeasley@xxxxxxxxxxxxx writes: Hi, Roger. Congrats on all your progress with the computer, that's really very good. Regarding leaving a bookmark, I'm sure there's probably a "computer" way of doing it, but I just do it like this. When I've been working and I decide I'm done, I type three ampersands, like this: &&&. You can use percentage signs, your own name, anything that is unlikely to actually show up in the book. Then I save my document and close down the word processing software. When I'm ready to start again, I open up the document I want to work on, and "Search" for &&& and it goes directly to where I was -- mid-sentence, at the start of a paragraph or page, just wherever I was when I typed them before I saved the document. Can you try that? Hugs, Marilyn On Jul 20, 2008, at 12:46 PM, Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx wrote: First, let me tell you about some progress I have made in ameliorating my technological illiteracy. As I mentioned earlier everything I know about using a computer I have learned by sitting down at the keyboard and teaching myself. Okay, there has been a little on line help like I received here. As I also mentioned earlier, before I tried out Bookshare.org I had never downloaded or uploaded a document. The only downloads I had ever done were some software and some software updates. Well, I have for some time now been reading some Project Gutenberg books on line because I had no idea how to download them. However, now that I have learned how to download Bookshare books I wondered if my newfound knowledge would help me at Project Gutenberg. Well, I just went there and downloaded a book. It was surprisingly easy and I felt like I should have been doing that a long time ago. Now I have a question. After having had some trouble submitting the first book I validated I am now working on another one. I , of course, cannot finish the whole thing in one sitting, but every time I go to my documents on my computer and open the book I find myself at the beginning. I have been coping by noting the page I am on when I quit and arrowing up until I get to the beginning and then type in the number of the page I left off on. That number will, of course, be deleted before I submit it. The problem is that when I open up the book again and am reminded of the page number it is a bit time consuming to find it again. I just arrow down until I come across it by stopping and checking now and then and, Of course, arrowing up again if I overshoot. Do you guys have any suggestions about how to more efficiently mark one's place? ________________________________ Get fantasy football with free live scoring.
