Hi Robert, In Microsoft word, pressing alt+control+8 will turn on JAWS' announcement of every space, paragraph mark and lots of other stuff. JAWS calls a line break a paragraph mark. I think that's what I remember. Remember that you don't want to get rid of ALL line breaks/paragraph marks. You need them at the beginning of real paragraphs. What you need to do is get rid of only paragraph marks preceding lower case letters. Instructions for how to do this and still preserve blank lines surrounding page numbers are in the message I sent recently that tells about my preferred scanning and proofreading process. Good luck!

I do not have a Braille display, and the rejection notes I have gotten on the four all said linebreaks. What is the method in Microsoft Word to get JAWS to tell me a linebreak character is there so I could try a global replace? I'm sorry to have so many questions; all my scanning in the past has just been for me, and using a BookPort for the last several years to read them. BookPort doesn't care about the linebreaks, but the Victor Streams (which I just got) appears to, as it makes the reading jerky.

You might be dealing with paragraph breaks at the end of each line, so that the text looks like it does in the printed book. When I have seen that, what I have tried to do is determine if there are 2 or more paragraph breaks ^p between the paragraphs. If so, I have changed all instances of ^p^p^p to a qqq, or if there aren't usually 3 together then just the ^p^p to a qqq. Then I change single ^p to a space. Then I change all the qqq back to ^p^p^p and I make sure to change all of the ^m to a ^p^m^p because changing those gives you the blank lines before and after hard page breaks. This will ONLY work if paragraphs are separated by at least two paragraph breaks. If they aren't, you're better off rejecting the book than you are trying to change only the correct ^p to a space. -- Jamie in Michigan Currently Reading: False Prophet by Faye Kellerman www.michrxtech.com/books.html To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
