Mary, I must point out that your statement is not actually true.  You
must have just learned to ignore the headers because they certainly are
present in braille books.  They all have page numbers and the title of
the book at the top of each page.  Since braille pages usually contain
less than print pages the headers and page numbers cause even more
clutter than they would in a scanned book, and they are also present in
web braille books.

I suggest people strip the headers themselves if they don't like them.
They can do it by searching for the words in the running headers or by
using their own software to do it.  I have also found it amazing just
how much can be ignored if you get used to it.

That doesn't mean I would reject books that don't have headers, but why
kill them if they are there and could be useful.
