Robert,

do you think it would help if the computer screen provided you with
phonetic representation of words? ...or other types of annotations
you might think about. (I am thinking of contributors that actually
annotate the text with these information, as well as automatic
tools that help them do it easier)

If I were using a tablet style display that felt more book-like, I might change my mind. :? This would be especially useful if I could mark up the display with an electronic pen. When I come across pronunciations that I'm unsure of, I tend to write them out phonetically on the print-out.


Robert,
I've got another question. Do you think it would make your life easier
while reading if you could download book text such that each *sentence*
appears in a different *line* ?

Like this:

----------------------
one sentence per line
----------------------
Buck did not read the newspapers , or he would have known that trouble was brewing , not alone for himself , but for every tide - water dog , strong of muscle and with warm , long hair , from Puget Sound to San Diego .

Because men , groping in the Arctic darkness , had found a yellow metal , and because steamship and transportation companies were booming the find , thousands of men were rushing into the Northland .

These men wanted dogs , and the dogs they wanted were heavy dogs , with strong muscles by which to toil , and furry coats to protect them from the frost .

----------------------
Default typesetting
----------------------

i like the sentence approach, IF it's also clear when there's a new para.
