A Page Break indicates the beginning of a new page. When you open a new file and begin typing,, the text eventually spills over onto another page once the current page fills up with text. You can force the Word Processor to begin a new page, even though you haven't reached the bottom of the current page, by inserting a Page Break. Bookshare policy requires that books contain Page Breaks in order to be added to the collection. This allows readers to jump to a specify page in DAISY books and allows Bookshare to preserve the original page numbering in BRF books. Page Breaks won't be evident in your file unless your Word Processor indicates where they are. You'll need to determine if it supports this since you aren't using something like Word or K-1000 to validate books and aren't exactly sure what you are using. It's possible that Stratus Pad, or whatever it is that you're using, is responsible for removing the Page Breaks, or that instead of Page Breaks, the book contains Section Breaks that indicate the beginning of a new page and that Stratus Pad doesn't support Section Breaks. We discovered back in the Fall that WordPad doesn't support Section Breaks, so books which are scanned by Carrie then validated using WordPad will be kicked back by Gustavo for the reason you mentioned. BTW, Gustavo's comment probably read to not remove Page Breaks, and that if they weren't removed, then to reject the book, instead of if they were removed to reject the book. My suggestion would be to tell the list which book you are talking about and let someone who uses Word or K-1000 verify that the scan contains Page Breaks. Once you are certain the the scan does indeed contain Page Breaks, or possibly Section Breaks, then you can more easily determine how to verify if they are present and if your Stratus Pad is throwing them out.

Hi all. I was just looking on the Step 1 page to download a new book to validate, and saw one that I had just validated back on the step 1 page. Gestavo's note said not to remove page breaks, and if they were removed then to reject the book. As far as I know I didn't remove anything from the book. The book had the author's name and the title of the book on the top of each page. Well I think the author's name may have been on even numbered pages and the name of the book on odd numbered pages, or vice versa. Can someone explain to me what exactly a page break is? I've validated a couple of books in the last couple of days and haven't run across anything in them that specifically says page break. I'm not using MS Word to read the books, but I'm using another program that will read .rtf files. I think it's something called Stratus Pad, or something similar. I don't want my work or time to be wasted because of something I don't know about. And are page breaks really a good criteria for accepting or rejecting a book even if the book is almost perfect with no errors? Maybe I'm just ignorant but I don't get why they're so important. If the book is good and legible and has the copyright information intact, isn't it still within the laws that allow us to access it? Just wondering. If anyone has any more info on this I'd be grateful. Thanks all. MissWings -- No virus found in this outgoing message. Checked by AVG Free Edition.
