You can continue to send RTF files saved from within Kurzweil but just to
play safe here is my suggestion.

After doing a save as RTF in Kurzweil, open the file with either MS-word or

With the file now open, Hit space then backspace. That is done just to let
MsWord or WordPad know that there was something modified in the document
cause if there was nothing changed, MsWord does not bother saving the
document even if you press control-s.

Now save the file and you can safely upload.

There is a bug somewhere but I don't know whether it is with Kurzweil or
with the bookshare program etcetera...

But if it is with Kurzweil, how come RTF files from Kurzweil can be openned
with any wordprocessor? I don't know

hope this helps

I have been sending my books in rtf lately converted from kes.  I hope this
is ok since that's what I thought I read that was more desirable.  Now I'm
confused, I didn't know there was a problem.  Please advise.
