Hi all. I like Monica's suggestions. I am also a Kurzweil editor. I have no desire whatever to learn about html, and I know from experience that using Word to look for random changes in font is extremely difficult if not impossible. Totally blind people certainly can deal with and work around font issues, but knowing what to look for is unimaginable to me. I mean, would we have some kind of list with all the publishers and what fonts and text attributes they use for everything? Otherwise, how would anyone figure something like that out. Also, as Jake pointed out, OCR tends to lose font information or get it wrong quite often. Even with the book in hand, how would a blind person figure that out without sighted assistance? I would be willing to use a simple markup system, but if I have to learn html and spend hours on agonizing over ethereal font information count me out! Kellie
