Thanks, Judy. I mistakenly extrapolated ( right word?) from what I do,
Bill, I see Judy answered the question about navigation points, butI think
maybe she didndd't understand your questkon about comments -- or maybe I
don't. If I remember correctly(and I may not because it's been a long time
since I scanned ( When you submit a scan I think there's a space somewhere
on the submission-page for Comments. That's here you'd put that the
should be proofed by a sighted person if necessary, or where you'd out that
you have the print book and someone can contact you if here's a question.

Oh dear, this isn't correct, Cindy. smile. The proofreader will not put in
the italics if the scanner has removed them. The scanner needs to preserve
italics if they are in the text if they possibly can.

There have perhaps been exceptions when a proofreader who is both sighted
and had access to a book agreed to add italics back into a book that had
them stripped out during the scanning process, but it wouldn't happen as a
matter of course.
