Unfortunately, many of the scans on books.google.com have errors. I discovered this while scanning the series of Irish mysteries I'm currently working on. Many of the Irish words and names have a fada, which looks like the French acute accent mark. These are often misrecognized. For example, a letter "a" with the fada will be recognized as a letter "d". I have found these same errors in the books on books.google.com. When I get sighted help or use my cctv I find that the word in question has an accented letter. I have found that I often get better results by doing a general search on google for the word or phrase in question.

I appreciate learning about books.google.com on this list a few months ago, because it came in handy tonight and I was able to find the information I was looking for. I am proofreading "The Sands of Time" by Sidney Shelton. In chapter one, page 1, there was a name that was recognized as Jaime Mir6, which is really Jaime Miro according to the information on Google Books. I was thinking it had an acute accent on the o because of the 6, which I have come across while scanning, but, I guess I'll stick with the plain o as Google shows.
