I'm sorry that I don't remember who asked about this, but someone was having difficulty hearing when one story ended and another began. I can see where that would be a problem, as some stories have odd endings, that may not seem to bring things to a conclusion. In addition, even if the submitter put blank lines between stories, synthesizers don't always pause to indicate that. As I have thought about it, my suggestion would be to try to notice when the subject appears to change suddenly. Stop reading, and arrow up a line or two, to see if you hear something that sounds like a title. If the words in that line are capitalized, that's probably the start of a new story. I'm validating a book that has several sections in each chapter, but the sections are not separated from the text by blank lines. I just listen for what sounds like a section title, and then check it. If it turns out to be capitalized, I put blank lines above and below it. I don't think the blank lines will help people who read with speech, but they should be useful for print and braille readers.
