Hi Gerald, That would be wonderful, if I could set a primary and secondary language in FineReader. I will check on that Monday when I go in. I don't believe Bookshare has upgraded to version 8.0 yet. There are 2 computers in Marissa's office that have FineReader 5.0 and 7.0 (out of the 4 computers in there). I suggested to the Bookshare staff that we upgrade the 5.0 to 8.0 and leave the 7.0 one alone, in case a major bug is discovered in 8.0. Hopefully this will be done sooner rather than later.

I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to configure FineReader for the secondary language if it does, though, since OpenBook does the configuring of the OCR software. BTW, has Bookshare upgraded to FineReader 8.0, or are they still using 7?

Of course, if I choose Latin, every English word will be flagged as misspelled. Can't win! I wish there was some way to say, there are 2 languages in this book, check that the word is in one language or the other before you flag it as misspelled. I assume that ABBYY is not that sophisticated yet.... or is it? Someone please tell me that that option already exists. :-) I'll email you, Pratik, when the book is in the download queue, so you can validate it. Thanks! Carrie Cindy <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: On behalf of Lena, and myself, thank you, Pratik. I'm curious, though--when I took first and second-year Latin in high school, the letters, i.e., fonts, were like English letters, unlike the non-romance languages I''ve seen. It was as easy to read the Latin (not translate, of course, until I'd learned) as the English. Why would Carrie have to change the recognition language on the scanner? Just curious.
