Jamie, I've had the urge to do that recently when there were a few only a misspelled words in the book, but I thought that would be unpleasant interruptions for people who listen, and possibly for Braille readers as well. I did put in the long synopsis that misspellings were in the book and so I left them alone, gritting my teeth.

When you quote a source that has errors, you put [sic] after the error to show it was an error in the source and not in your quoting. Would it be permissible to put [sic] after the errors so that readers know it wasn't a poor scan?
