Re: Destination Freedom - missing episodes

Richard Davenport
 

I am missing the ones Mike Cavanaugh mentions as well.  If they are located I would like copies if possible.

Here is the full run listing.  The txt files are filler/placer files to have the file info available.  Those are the missing ones.

Re: Acrobat

Absolutely correct.  That's why it's best to use a program that exports directly to PDF without finalizing it in a true sense.

Typically scans take pictures and put that into the pdf container.  No ability do use other effects either (page turns, hyperlinks, indexing etc), which is not applicable to this discussion, but just something else to keep in mind.  It just depends on how "rich" you want that pdf target to be.

Re: Dropbox/OneDrive/pCloud - The Anderson Family v2102 #new-distro

Ryan Ellett
 

This set was donated by a gentleman who recorded the series from his collection of transcriptions. He is not involved in the OTR hobby but wanted a place to share them to the public. I tried to get them in a lossless format but he only wanted to share in mp3 at this time. They sound very nice, nonetheless. Not a well-known series; give it a whirl!

Re: Duffy's Tavern

Ryan Ellett
 

Martin's book was invaluable in dating the episodes, especially when scripts started being reused later in the series. There was only one episode we couldn't find and Martin confirmed to go with Dave Goldin's dating because it was a script that was likely changed at the last minute.

Re: Acrobat

To me, in that case, the end product (in this case, pdf) would be the more important aspect and if that is more accessible, not so much the "master file" use by whatever program.

Finding programs that are accessible in that means are unfortunately few and far between, certainly feature complete with all features being accessible.  It's just hard to get everything at the same level.  Scribus does have some integration for Orca that I have seen, but Orca to my knowledge is still Linux only (despite being Python based, I think it has to do with the assistance API that Orca targets, not on Windows or Mac).  Scribus my work with others on the other platforms, but the only other OS I run is Windows and that's in a VM, so testing for something like that is going to be limited.

Thanks, however, for the clarification.

I wasn't suggesting Publisher, I mentioned that so people would know the equivalent to what I was talking about.  I was recommending Scribus, which is available on ALL desktop platforms (I'm a Linux user and we usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to software availability) and is free and does not depend on a perpetually connected computer.  I don't see it getting more accessible then that.

 

As far as accessibility to the blind, most anything should work as long as it isn't going through a lot of steps in the conversion process.  I wouldn't "print to pdf" (or bring in scans etc), would want to export to PDF.

Saving from word to .pdf has improved a lot but it will sometimes have formatting issues as you have discovered.  Adobe is really powerful but really expensive.  I use Nitro PDF software to turn word to .pdf and to edit.  It is also fairly costly, around $150 for a license but worth it if you have to work in that format very often.  .PDF can be frustrating!

There's quite a number of episodes in our online library but the ones for our Maintained set are currently on my harddrive. However, with the Hehn project and our other big reel buy, there are number of newly digitized copies I need to be compared to the set that Joe Webb passed on for release. Hopefully it will be finished and distributed in the next month or so. I think it will make fans of Duffy's Tavern quite happy.
