 +Q: I'm working on Sin Eater, my first MP3 to DAISY, and after the end of the last chapter file comes this blurb:
 +"This is the end of Sin Eater, but keep listening after the credits for a special note from the author. If you enjoyed this audiobook, find more just like it from Podium Publishing, the leader in Sci Fi and Fantasy audiobooks, available exclusively on Audible.com."​
 +
 +And then a pause, followed by, "You have been listening to Sin Eater..."​ followed by credits/​Title Page information.
 +
 +The author'​s "​special note" is then in a separate chapter. ​
 +
 +My question is this: Is that first blurb a "​preview"​ and should I thereof split it off? Do I then split off the Sign Off/End Credits and keep that but remove/​delete the preview blurb? And then finish up with Notes by the Author?
 +
 +A: Good question! Could you use the [[public:​nnels:​mp3todaisy:​handtorachel|Hand to Rachel]] feature for me to take a closer look at those end tracks?
 +
 +UPDATE: I listened to the file, the section that is "this is the end .." is the sign off track. You can split it and name it ''​End Credits''​. The last track is an Afterword. The narration even states he is reading and Afterword at the beginning of the track. Previews are a section from the next book by the author, as a way to get the readers interested in purchasing more books. See [[public:​nnels:​mp3todaisy:​audiobook-glossary|Audiobook Glossary]] for full definition. ​
 +
 +Name the last track ''​Afterward''​ and leave it where it is.

 +Q: I have another question about an Andy Weir title - The Martian. The audiobook seems to have a chapter of bonus content that isn't in the ebooks TOC. The narrator on the last track says: "And now some selections from the files of Marc Watney. Diary of An AssCan."​ Diary of an AssCan is a short prequel story to The Martian (https://​the-martian.fandom.com/​wiki/​Diary_Of_An_AssCan:​_A_Mark_Watney_Short_Story). The text on this fandom page matches the text the narrator reads.
 +
 +All this to say - I'm not sure how to name this track and it isn't in a TOC so I can't refer there. The narrators wording is kind of long... Can I call it "​Selections from the files of Marc Watney",​ or "Diary of an AssCan"?​ Thanks for your help!
 +
 +A: This is a preview track. We delete all preview tracks.

 +Q: I'm working on Project Hail Mary - the project is pretty straightforward with the exception of the last chapter which is titled "​Chapter [symbol]"​. The narrator says "​Chapter Mmm-mmm"​. I can't find away to insert a symbol into the name - how should I proceed? (I've currently titled it chapter 30)

 +A: Could you use the ''​Hand to Rachel''​ feature so I can look at the file more closely? Once I can listen to it I can better answer this question. Thank you!

 +Q: In Rough and Plenty (Project name Rogers), the TOC uses roman numerals for the chapter numbers (the TOC uses lower case roman numerals whereas the chapter headings use upper case. I've been trying to follow the roman numerals, but converter plus keeps mixing the cases so it ends up being Iii or Vi. Is this something that can be fixed or should I switch to using numbers instead? Thanks for your help!
 +
 +A: COP has a built in Capitalization function to aid people with screen readers have the proper capitalization when using the app. It is still a bit buggy, and I am unable to fix the Roman Numeral bug at this point. You can just replace the Roman Numerals with Arabic Numerals (1,2,3 etc..)

 Q: I have a question regarding naming tracks in "​Soldiers of Song" (Project name Wilson). The audio book includes a number of songs at the end of the book (How fun!) and the publisher named the track with the name of the song and indicates that it is a song - for example "Long Trail Winding (song)"​. Obviously these aren't included in the TOC of the ebook (including the Appendicies),​ and the narrator only names the song in one case. Am I okay to leave as is, or is there another best practice? Q: I have a question regarding naming tracks in "​Soldiers of Song" (Project name Wilson).

 Second question, the publisher has a track titled “Alt Text and Captions” that begins abruptly with the alt-text for figure 1. Can I leave this named as such? I wanted to check since I don’t see a relevant term listed in the Audiobook Glossary section of the wiki, and it isn’t included in the ebook and the narrator doesn’t say a title!

-A: The heading structure looks good. I am looking into what to do with the Alt-text and will update this answer once I knowThe way the narrator read the images ​is not helpful ​to the listenerso we may want to tag them like endnotesI will update this space as soon as I have an answer+A: The heading structure looks good. You can keep the name as is for the Alt-text ​section ​and give it a H1 headingIt is not an ideal way to record Alt-textwhich is why we are pushing so hard in the industry ​to create standards.

 Q:I am working on the title Transition to Common Work (file name Mancini) and I have a question about naming a track. The second track begins with an image description (which closely represents the images on the front cover) followed by a short paragraph titled "The Six Virtues"​ and there is no corresponding listing in the ebook TOC (this section comes after the front cover, but before the title page). It seems logical to me to name it "The Six Virtues"​ since that seems to be the heading on the page, but I wanted to double check since it doesn'​t correspond with anything on the TOC. Q:I am working on the title Transition to Common Work (file name Mancini) and I have a question about naming a track.
