Carrie and all:
Since sectoin breaks have been brought up, are they the same as page breaks, or 
should I ask, will they be acceptable in March?

  Hi Jake,

  Far be it for me to assign you work, but if you're willing to look at a book 
that I'm positive has section breaks instead of page breaks, then The 
Autobiography of Bertrand Russell is on the download list.  It was scanned and 
OCRed at the Bookshare office.

    Hi Carrie,
        I'm not a K1K user, but I can definately say that it does see normal 
page breaks. Whether or not it recognizes section breaks I do not know. I'm 
assuming someone out there can look into this and let us know.
        I am an OpenBook user (not by choice) and I'm not sure how it would 
handle "section breaks." If you or someone else would like me to look into it, 
I'd be happy to do so, just point me in the direction of an appropriate file.

      Hi Jill,

      When I replied to Reggie off-list, I said that the OCR program at the 
Bookshare office puts section breaks instead of page breaks in its RTF files. I 
always change the section breaks immediately to page breaks whenever I validate 
a book, even though Marissa said I needn't do that.  Maybe before we submit 
books from the office, we should change all the section breaks to page breaks, 
but I'm not sure this would help.  It sounds like Kurzweil ignores both section 
breaks AND page breaks.  I don't know that there are any other kinds of breaks 
that we can insert between pages.  What do you think?  Should we change the 
section breaks to page breaks before submitting books, or is there another 
alternative I'm not thinking of right now?

      What I told Reggie to do was send me the books, and I'd see if the 
section breaks were still there.  If they were, I'll change them to page 
breaks; if not, I'll get the original books from the office and insert page 
breaks at the appropriate places.  Either way, the books will get page breaks, 
then I'll send the page-breaked (page-broken?) books back to him.

        You're not the only one who is confused about page breaks in spite of 
the help others have given. I am currently using Kurzweil to validate and it 
doesn't ever even say the word page break. I just assume they are where the 
Kurzweil page numbers are spoken but don't know if that's correct. And if a 
book number is missing I really have no idea where to type it or whether to 
insert a page break. I could really use help on this. Jill

          I have 4 short children's books that were placed on the site last 
week.  They are validated, but I cannot find any page breaks at all.  Should I 
reject them (not my favorite thing to do), accept them as is, or release for 
someone else to put page breaks in who can see them? They are RTF and I placed 
them on my BN to validate.  Sure hope I did not clear the page breaks! 

          I have contacted Gustavo, but when I saw your name on here, I decided 
to ask directly! I am just so, so confused about this page break thing! I don't 
have Kurzweil so I am not certain anymore what I should use for validating.
