moderated Questions about QRead


Cristóbal
 

Still works perfectly fine on both my Windows 10 computers. In my case, I
use the portable version (3.21)that I have saved in my Google Drive account
so I can maintain synchronicity across both machines. How useable/navigable
a book or PDF or document will largely depend on how the document was
created/formatted to begin with. All my Bookshare downloads for example are
in ePub format and while some books are nicely marked up, there are still
some that don’t' have page numbering.
It may be that Acrobat Reader DC works better with PDFs, but I'm still
partial to QRead simply because it can handle all sorts of formats and
minimizes the number of programs I have to use and learn how to use.
It would be nice to have the ability to highlight passages or make notes,
but as others have mentioned, it seems that QRead development has stopped.
Not a deal breaker though. Truthfully, it's pretty complete for what it's
meant for already.
Still a good little ebook reading program in my opinion.

I agree. I think it was $35 when I bought it a few years ago, and I believe
it definitely has been worth the money. At the time I bought it, I think I
was still using Windows 7, and was having more issues reading PDFs than I do
now.

Personally, I have never found a need for more support on this product.

I am glad they developed the product and do not feel that if a developer
moves on to something else, that they started out with the idea to rip off
blind people, as I seem to hear more often than I would like.

And if a person moves on to other things, he moves on to other things.
The program is out there if people want it as is.
It's a good program, and people have the choice as to whether or not to
purchase it.
I guess he could take it down because he isn't supporting it anymore.
Then we wouldn't have it at all.

It is not the charge ones are objecting too, it is the non-support and no
updates one gets or in the case of updates, doesn't get that is the
problem. I guess it is the old, "What do you expect for $10?" In these
times, if you charge for an app, you are reasonably expected to provide
updates. Even a low cost app years ago, after a few years, provided an
updated version to keep up with the changing software.

It's still out there. I've never been charged more than once even though I
tried to purchase it for other computers. A message would come up that I
already had a license so could just download it.
But the last time I tried was a couple years ago. I kept the downloaded file
in case I needed it again, but I don't know if it would work again.
But it works fine on my two machines where it is installed.
The person who used to write that program is no longer working on those now
I guess. But the money spent was more than well worth it, and I would have
paid ten times that much for that program gladly.

Q-read? Is it still out there? I thought the developer took their money
years ago and ran. Half grin. Seriously, I got the Q-cast years ago and
after about 2 years of trying to get support with no results or
acknowledgement of my queries , I opted for another program. I never did
use Q-reader as I was told Fire fox was just as good and at least it got
updated regularly. . For all I know the developers of all the Q-programs
are sitting on some island enjoying their monetary gain they got from the

non-support from the developers of the Q-programs. Several others got the

Subject: Questions about QRead

Hi,

I am currently exploring QRead, I have Jaws 2021 on a Windows 10 machine.
Here are a couple of questions:

First, what advantages, in your view, does QRead have over Acrobat Reader
DC, for reading PDFs? Does it avoid the problem of words running together
and JAWS losing focus?

Second, how can one find out the page number of one's current location and
get to a specific page number in QRead?

Third, is there a way to access bookmarks made in a PDF, via QRead?

I had rejected it earlier, since it did not allow para-wise navigation with
JAWS. However, that seems doable with the demo I downloaded today.

Warmly,
Rahul

QRead depends on the text that it can extract from the files that you're
trying to read, so it depends on how the PDF was created. In my opinion
the best experience would be to use ABBYY PDF 15 to convert your PDFs to
use proper tagging and OCR if needed, then use QRead to navigate, save
bookmarks, keep your place when you re-open the program, etc. Also, you
can jump to a page in QRead with ctrl+p. Other shortcuts are in the
Navigation menu. It's possible that having ABBYY PDF convert everything
to epub might result in a better QRead experience than using pdf, I'm
not sure.

The thing I keep it around for is speed mostly -- it opens entire documents very quickly 9as opposed to just doing pages at a time) and thus your documens are searchable. I mostly prefer using a braille display and I find qRead doesn't really track properly after a certain point in a document. Still keep it around though.

I bought it a few years ago myself. I mostly just convert to text now and read on a braille display but I still find the programme useful and don't mind having paid a bit for it. Would be alright if it was updated but I don't really see the big deal, unless he was going to put some work into supporting more epub featuresa nd such there's just not much point.

Hello, Alt+up and down arrows do not work with me to read sentence by
sentence, sheer silence.
If the document is propertly structured, CTRL+H or CTRL+T should work.

I don't know about bookmarks. I just go to a certain percentage of my document.
It looks like you can go to the page you want.
All I know is that it handles 1500 page books very easily!

Subject: Questions about QRead

Hi,

I am currently exploring QRead, I have Jaws 2021 on a Windows 10 machine. Here are a couple of questions:

First, what advantages, in your view, does QRead have over Acrobat Reader DC, for reading PDFs? Does it avoid the problem of words running together and JAWS losing focus?

Second, how can one find out the page number of one's current location and get to a specific page number in QRead?

Third, is there a way to access bookmarks made in a PDF, via QRead?

I had rejected it earlier, since it did not allow para-wise navigation with JAWS. However, that seems doable with the demo I downloaded today.

Warmly,
Rahul

QRead is definitely not being updated and if you can use it, more power to you, but personally, Acrobat Reader DC works perfectly well for me and/or using Edge, or opening them in Microsoft Word, at least the Word in Microsoft 365.

Q-read? Is it still out there? I thought the developer took their money years ago and ran. Half grin. Seriously, I got the Q-cast years ago and after about 2 years of trying to get support with no results or acknowledgement of my queries
, I opted for another program. I never did use Q-reader as I was told Fire fox was just as good and at least it got updated regularly. . For all I know the developers of all the Q-programs are sitting on some island enjoying their monetary gain they got from the ... blind, laughing at them. Just so you know, I'm not the only one who got non-support from the developers of the Q-programs. Several others got the same disgraceful results.

Hello, are you able to navigate sentence by sentence on Q Read? cause I cannot, and it seems like the development of the app got discontinued, there's no new release for a long time.
