I tried with Doxillian, and Jaws OCR.
I haven't yet reinstalled Open Book, but I used to sometimes do OCR on JPGs and PDFs with that.

Hi JM,

I do want to have something in place for doing this, but I'll send you the file, as I have a couple projects going on now, and would like just having it in a format I can read.

Thanks

Hey Glenn.

 

There are browser extensions to read Epub for both Chromium-based and Firefox browsers. I’m not too crazy about the ones I’ve tried, but they do mostly work. There’s also something like Qread, which can handle the format. I think there is an add-on for MS Word as well.

Ther’sa lso the Calibre book reader, which apparently can be used for conversion – it has some command line tools and I haven’t really played around with it. The main interface doesn’t seem all that accessible, though there is an NVDA addon for it and I should probably mess with it at some point.

I think pandoc will convert epubs to other formats, too.

 

What’s the book? If it’s that old and readily available online there should be multiple formats available including .txt. Stil, if not, you could send me the book and I’ll see what I can make of it – I have a bunch of conversion tools and so on.

Is Adobe the only way to read an ePub book in windows?
I downloaded an ePub book, and I don't know why it is in a format I can't
change to TXT, as the book is almost 200 years old.
I downloaded the PDF too, but it won't scan, it is likely protected as well.

I've always downloaded the Adobe ePub version and then imported into Voice
Dream.

I haven't found them to be. I set my overdrive eBooks to only be in kindle
so that I can read them on any of my devices.
