HI all, I am looking to validate my first book, as I have been a member, but just got signed up as a validator. There are three books, any of which I would be happy to validate, but they are all in .ark format. I can read them; that's not the problem. I do have Openbook as my scanning software anyway. My question is: Can I edit these in Word and should I then change them back to .ark to be uploaded or could they be uploaded back in .rtf format? Obviously, I would and could only do one of these three; I know that, so I don't need that clarified. The reason I ask this is that I find Openbook to be a fine scanning program, but I find it cumbersome for editing with. The speech is just a bit more sluggish than JAWS by itself and I'd just rather use Word if I can, plus I find Word's spell checker easier to use, because I can read the context of where the error is found; whereas, with Openbook, this is not possible to my knowledge. Any answers on this would be appreciated. As I said, I can read the ark format, just would really like to not have to use the Openbook program itself to do the validation if I don't have to.
