Hi Mike,
While I agree that we do need a way to access a plain text of the original book (obviously it would need to be in DAISY or BRF), its important for us not to attempt to defeat the BookShare tool at this time.
Undoubtedly with engineering working on creating BRF files with proper pagination, the system needs to be able to use the stripper to recognize where page numbers are and pick them up accordingly.


Best,
Jake

And what does this all mean for those who happen to read books in ways
other than this perfect Daisy player for which the stripper is optimized?
Little wonder that so many books are ruined by the stripper and rendered
far less usefull than they would otherwise be.
Given the nature of how bookshare books are received, attempting to strip
them the way the stripper works is a recipe for disaster.
Also, given that many of us do not even use a Daisy player to read the
books, the end result is even more predictable.
