That's right. But when/if that will happen is anybody's guess. But with all this money that Bookshare is going to get, maybe it will happen sooner than we - or, I at least - might expect. That's why, despite my ambivalence, I tend to leave the em dashes as I find them.

Hi Jamie!I think that what people are saying is that the em dash doesn't translate properly in the braille produced by the Bookshare tools, and they don't mind that. The double hyphens, they seem to be saying, translate to the proper braille representation of the em dash. I think the hope is that if we leave the em dashes alone the Bookshare tools will be updated some day, and the files which don't have the long dashes in braille will be retranslated then. Maybe I'm interpreting things incorrectly, but that seems to be what I'm hearing.Peace, Mayrie At 04:38 AM 10/24/2007, you wrote:Ok I guess I am still confused about the em dash situation. It doesn't translate properly but that's ok?I don't care either way but I just want what I scan to be right. Jamie in Michigan Currently Reading - Loyalty in Death - J.D.
