Hi Roger, What you are experiencing is pretty normal, I think. Were you, before this issue came up, accustomed to hearing jaws announce "page break" when reading continuously? Sorry if you have answered that already. Your solution sounds the most practical to me. Now, I will tell you that Bookshare, though it does require page breaks, does not require that books have page numbers. Many of us insert them when working if they aren't present. I just wanted to let you know that inserting them is not required by Bookshare. Those who take the time to insert them are much appreciated by me and many others. I personally absolutely always insert them when working on a book whose page numbers didn't scan well. Just wanted you to know that you have choices while still adhering to the letter of Bookshare law. Good luck, and I for one do appreciate your conscientiousness!

Dear Roger, When Jaws was speaking Page break, I was listening to the book by arrowing down one line at a time. I don't use continuous play because I think I concentrate and notice more detail one line at a time. The act of arrowing down line by line seems to aid my concentration on the task. Reading line by line helps me hear when funky formatting is going on as when margins are all over the map or fonts go huge, because those problems present as much shorter or longer sounding lines. Really, I'm not sure that matters as long as the paragraph breaks are in the right places. I'm sorry I can't contribute anything to help you hear page breaks when JAWS is continuously reading. Good luck. Always with love, Lissi ----- Original Message ----- From: Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, July 27, 2008 11:43 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Jaws, tight lipped about page breaks! As a matter of fact, I am having a similar problem. I have just started validating a book in which I at first thought that there were no page breaks. However, when I down arrow one line at a time JAWS reads the page breaks when I come to them. It just doesn't do so when it is continuously reading. To make matters worse, none of the pages are numbered. I have just inserted the first ten page numbers, but this is too tedious while reading the text too. If no other solution is found I think that I will just go ahead and finish the book on continuous read and then go back and down arrow from one page break to another inserting page numbers. By the way, I am using JAWS 9.0. In a message dated 7/27/2008 8:26:54 P.M.
