The Companion Bible for e-Sword is altered from the printed one. I appreciate the great effort contributors have made to help us have such abundance available in e-Sword, but when things are altered and still labeled as being the same as the printed version, then to me, that is error.

I agree. There are a ton of typos in this resource and it really needs to be made, from the ground up and put into a format that more closely resembles the original (when possible).

 

It was imported from another Bible software. Their methodology was to use algorithms and various search/replace's to fix typos and known problems. That worked sometimes, but it left (and sometimes even created) other errors throughout. There's still no substitute, when OCRing text, for a human eye comparing suspect words in the original scan with the digitized text.

"various search/replace's to fix typos and known problems. That worked sometimes, but it left (and sometimes even created) other errors throughout. There's still no substitute, when OCRing text,"

 

suggestions: for search/replace

 

1. include spaces both sides of abbrv. or word, check case in options if needed

2. start slow step by step if it looks like you can hit the "all" button then do.  if not the step by step.

3. step by step may not work so you may have to do it manually because you will create more errors.

you might have to create multiple copies with the created more errors. (if U understand what U are doing).  that is if U are using multiple sources for the work.

 

from hard knocks of learning.
