I have been following the discussion on the list about making italics but
have done nothing about it so far; this is partly because Kurzweil does such
a good job reading them and although it would be nice, I didn't think it was
all that important making the italics available in braille since they
wouldn't be shown in the speech version either.  Now, however, I am
confronted with an example that Kurzweil can't read and it's fairly long. I
can retype it but, of course, the effect will be lost for the sighted
reader. I would really welcome being told what others are doing in similar
situations. I think it is virtually impossible to accommodate the three
readinggroups who use Bookshare. I wonder how  the staff doing scanning
would handle this situation. Any comments would be welcome. Jill
