Hi Mary. I suspect you aren't doing anything wrong.If you do as I do when using ranked spelling, when k1000 comes across a word it doesn't know, but you know it's right, you either ignore the word, or, more likely, ignore all occurrences of the word. That takes the word out of consideration for a ranked spelling score.
When you change formats, all bets are off, and all words that you previously ignored are now considered for a score, which will bring the score down. Nothing has actually changed, it's all in the process.
I hope that makes sense, and makes you feel a little better. Bob----- Original Message ----- From: "Mary Stephens" <mstephen@xxxxxxxx>

Hello. I have been a lurker on this list off and on for some time and have validated a number of books. I recently began working with rank spelling and discovered a problem which I am afraid I may have had all along without realizing. I download RTF files into Kurzweil version 11; then change to KES for validating; then change back to RTF to upload. For my most recent book, which I have not yet uploaded, I had an original rank spelling of 98.57. After validating, it was 99.82. I checked again after changing back to RTF, and rank spelling had reverted to the original 98.57. What am I doing wrong in changing formats?What made me think of checking this was when I uploaded one of the recently added books from BookShare which had a rating of Excellent. There were many errors. When I checked its rank spelling, it showed 94.5--obviously not excellent rating.If anyone can straighten me out on this, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
