To what book are you referring here? ----- Original Message ----- From: Kenneth Cross To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, October 08, 2006 11:18 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Page numbers Well, I just got back from a vacation, so I will check and repl in more detail. However, while I was away, a book called PLAYLAND was approved by BookShare. That book has about 486 actual pages, beginning at 1 and going to 486. The book on BookShare contains less than 400 pages. I have not checked the Daisy pages, but I will. Meanwhile, you might want to check how a book with almost 500 pages contains less than 400 in the Braille format. I will get back tomorrow with more info.--- Original Message ----- From: Pratik Patel To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, October 03, 2006 2:51 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Page numbers Hello DR Cross, I'm going to respond to the question you brought up regarding this particular book. I'll send off another message that deals specifically with some of the braille page number issues that have been reported. Having examined and compared both the DAISY and the braille file generated by the Bookshare tools after it was validated, I've determined that the book contains exactly 546 pages as your original did. Yes, Kurzweil does report that the book has 556 pages instead of 546 as you surmise. But, you have forgotten to discount the preliminary pages in your analysis. The first 9 or ten pages are the roman pages that contain the copyright notice, contents, acknowledgements, etc. the DAISY file is perfectly marked up with the page numbers properly tagged. In a tool that supports page navigation, you would be able to navigate by using its facility. Kurzweil 1000 does not recognize DAISY page numbers at this time marked up by Bookshare tools. As I'll report more with other braille tests, the braille likewise has the pages marked and contains 546 pages with preliminary pages marked properly. HTH. Let me know if you have any questions.

The book itself and the submission contained 546 pages. The RTF submission contains 644 pages. The daisy file, by the way, contains 558 pages. Now how do I know what page I'm really on?
