Hi. Agreed. Using a spell-checker is certainly a good idea. Although, I never accept a change unless I'm absolutely certain that it's correct. All I'd add is that folks be extra careful when using spell-check. Hmmm, interesting. With your example sentences, my JAWS spoke to me in the following way: This first sentence is fine dot But it runs into this next one. I could tell there wasn't a space after the first sentence because it said the word dot rather than just pausing at the period.

The person using a screen reader to review a book rather than using a braille display or looking at the screen may not catch these run together words or sentences unless a spell checker is used. I know somebody validated this book and let lots of sentences such as the following go right through. This first sentence is fine.But it runs into this next one. Without a braille display I would not know the period in the above sentence was not followed by a space. Spell checking of this sort is particularly important if validating a book children may use when learning braille. E.
