Hi list. I agree with Valerie as well.As someone who uses speech to read bookshare books, more specifically Kurzweil, because of the way I have my punctuation set, I don't hear when there is a quote so I wouldn't know that it was a caption, and would think it was part of the text of the book, having the word "caption" would make it very clear what the text is.

Vivian mentioned she had found in the volunteer manual to simply enclose a caption in quotes, as mentioned here:https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/4.8+Y.+Format+for+image+description+tags#4.8Y.Formatforimagedescriptiontags-formattouseforimagedescriptionswithcaptions The example given is:*[image: A young boy in mid-air as he dives off a pier into a small lake. Already in the water is * *an older man, standing and smiling.**"Having fun on hot days."]* But I have always done it like this:*[image: A young boy in mid-air as he dives off a pier into a small lake. Already in the water is * *an older man, standing and smiling.**caption: Having fun on hot days.]*I can develop new habits, but to me, the other is more clear, espcially if the caption is a quote already in quotation marks. Is there a reason for the change?Valerie Keep up with Nichole's recovery: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/nicholemaples
