Joe:
I may want a portable copy of the manual to take with me on a shoot.

I use ZoomText and ZoomText will not allow me to read pdf straight through. I can copy chunks to the clipboard or use the speak it tool to highlight chunks and read it that way.

Hi, why not just read it in the PDF format? I use Adobe all the time with
JFW and it does fine. You can also use adobe and save it as a text file only
. JMT!

Hi Lynn,

well, I think there may be a free daisy e-book creator which works with MS
Word.  if that's the case, then you've only got to look for a free pdf to
Word conversion utility. I don't know if there are any, but if not, you can
always save the pdf as a text file, and bring the text file into Word.


Unfortunately, we bought a digital camera, and I wanted to read it's pdf
manual so I could help Allison set it up for unusual shots.  I had no luck
because the manual constantly referred to everything using international
symbols for all buttons and menu choices (or there were graphic pictures of
what you should see), and there was very little clear text that was really
helpful.


hth,

Chip

Subject: [tabi] Converting PDF to a DAISY formatted book



I recently bought a Samsung digital camera. The manual for this camera is a
PDF file on CD ROM.

Like the subject line says how can I convert it to a DAISY book so I could
listen to it on my V R Stream or NLS advanced player. What software would I
use; also I would like to do it on the cheep.
