Cindy, as it says in the volunteer manual, times new roman, arial etc. and most any standard fonts are really acceptable. smile. For now, the bookshare translation tool that creates the daisy files is standardizing the font as arial. But since bookshare keeps the original rtf, the option is there in the future for all fonts that are in the rtf to be retained in the DAISY xml files.

that some of the Fancy ones just don't translate translate--I
assume in braille but maybe in other things, too, so I just
use times Roman, or may New York or some of the more common
fonts that approximate what I'm seeing. I didn't know Arial
was desirable; I thought Times roman was the preferred font,
generally. I do enlarge and bold and italicize letters and
words, though, if they're that way in the book. Cindy
