It's probably not my place to answer, but I can imagine myself with failing eyesight as I grow older, or with macualr degeneration, and using my computer to magnify the type of a book--as I do now, in most cases, to validate. My father's 90-something lady friend has macular degeneration and was given some kind of magnifying reader, but she finds it confusing to use. I think I'd prefer the computer. I don't know enough about dyslexia or other physical conditions to know what best serves them. O.K. Yes, Sue, this has been discussed before, quite some time ago, when I first started validating. At that time more people told me they wanted skipped lines between paragraphs if possible. But, like the book title says, that was then, this is now, and there are new people on this list, so I'd like to take a new survey. Indented paragraphs, lines skipped between paragraphs if possible, or neither, just the end-of-line paragraphs symbol. I'd like to here from the administrators, too, if possible. So far I have Sue for indenting and Elizabeth for just the end-of-line symbol. Thank you all for taking the time to respond.
