No doubt others will reply to you too. You're right; you can't do a good
validation without reading the book or at least doing a lot of random
checking. We on this list have known for a long, long time that Bookshare
needs to change their directions if good validations are to result. The best
tool when using Kurzweil is to run the book through ranked spelling in the
tools menu. A lot of the words it shows you will be proper names which are
probably correct but it will also show you partial words, random incorrect
characters etc. If you are unable to use a print copy to check on errors and
you encounter a lot of missing words or partial words, you should either
downgrade the book or reject it. I hope this helps. Jill

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] validation question
hi all. I was reading the instructions tonight and it said that a person was not required to read the book if they didn't want to in order to validate. If you don't read the book how can one be sure to know whether it's a pretty cleans? I found excellent ratings but yet there are weird characters in the books. Also how do you know which characters to remove and which to keep in? I find there's also a lot of numbers before the copyright. Any ideas would be appreciated. Also what's the fastest way to edit a book? I have kurzweil and word.
