Hi, 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 in 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 this an absolute necessity? Help! Lea --------------------------------- Discover Yahoo! Stay in touch with email, IM, photo sharing & more. Check it out!
