Hey guys,

I have a Maestro PDA that I mostly use for GPS, but when they incorporated a
DAISY player in the system, I thought it would be a neat idea to download
books from bookshare and put them on the system to see how well it did with
them.  I don't know if anyone has seen this with other players, but on
Maestro, pretty much every line, words from the previous print line are run
together with the next line.  Yso you mightget a sentencelike this, except
for the fact that wordsdon't appear asoften as I am puttingthem here.  I'm
assuming this is either a tagging problem (the Maestro doesn't recognize a
tag) or bookshare is putting a nonstandard tag in.  I am leaning toward a
Maestro problem, but I wonder about this, because I haven't heard too many
complaints on the Victor Reader standalone software though admittedly, I
haven't heard anything about Bookshare DAISY.  I can go into the xml for the
DAISY to see where problems occur, but I'm not sure what to look for.  Can
any techie give me an idea what might be the problem (Jim or Peter or
somebody)?  Thanks.
