We retain all hyperlinks as they appear in the original ebook.

We only remove hyperlinks for indexes with page number (unless, in the rare case, we have print page number breaks in the document).

You will need to check to make sure the link works. Simply click on the link to make sure it opens to an active and correct webpage.

If it does not link properly you will have to edit the link.

  • Right click on the link to open the menu
  • Select Hyperlink > Edit Hyperlink
  • This will open a new window
  • Make sure there correct URL is in the Address box under the Web Page or File tab
If the original ebook does not have a hyperlink then you do not need to add one. We are not editors, so we don't have to add any links if they were not originally there.

Dealing with Broken Links

If the Request is for DAISY there will be a note within the ticket of the title.

Hyperlinks must be removed, or unlinked, for conversion to DAISY. The URL text without the links can be retained.

Even after following the instructions below, links can sometimes be oddly persistent. Be sure to hover over each URL you see to make sure that it is not still a hyperlink - even if the text is "Normal" Style and not blue, the link may still be hiding.
