Shelley, I have taken Seven Dials to validate. The problem I have run into is that there are a lot of spaces where they shouldn't be; for example, 50 some ing, and I can't think of any way this can be globally corrected. I will continue working with the book as I will enjoy reading it but it my take quite a while to produce an acceptable result as I am also scanning other material. Is the book by any chance a large print edition. The headers are having to be deleted separately as well because of the spacing issue. Did you happen to try optimizing? My sympathies go out to you on your vacationing BrailleNote; I live in northern California and have never gotten mine back in under two weeks, at which time I feel like my right hand has been cut off. Mine is male personalized as well; his name is Charlie and don't ask me why; it just suits.
