Shelley,  you will find page numbers when reading a book with Victor, or 
other daysy reader,  even though they do not show in the body-text.  Page 
numbers are kept in page tags.

Don't remove page breaks though, as these are REQUIRED.

Chapter titles, must be kept, Chapter headers can be removed, I for one 
really love page numbers.

If it is a fiction book, and even though it is prefeered to have the page 
numbers, and I try to keep the chapter headings at the beginning of the 
chapter, I erase the headers at the top of each page even though kurzweil 
will skip over them if you have it set that way. As stated in another 
make sure that all page numbers, page breaks and chapter headings are

  I'm relatively new to volunteering at Bookshare, and I'm only doing 
validation as I don't have a scanner.

  I've started getting hard-copies from the local library when validating 
order to clean up the many typos/dropped words that I'm finding with the 
books I'm validating. I'm also only validating txt/rtf files because I am 
sighted and don't have any text-readers/braille software.

  Now - here is my confusion. I was catching up on my mailing-lists and 
noticed there was several long discussions about chapter headers, page 
breaks and page numbers. After reading this stuff I'm afraid I've made a 
horrible mistake in a book or two that I've validated and submitted.

  I've basically been stripping out all chapter headers, page numbers and 
*gulp* - page breaks, because that is always how I've put together scanned 

books in the past for my husband to read (he uses Jaws and then just opens 

up the books as text files). This was obviously very ignorant of me.

  I'm currently working on a book, which I've gone back and added the page 

breaks. Do I also need to add the page numbers and chapter headers? Is 
an absolute necessity?
