Re: greek text on android

OK, so I FINALLY found a couple of programs that really do work for me on my android stuff. They both are sensible enough to allow the user to use fonts (get your own) stored on the sd card. So if you want to use Gentium or New Athena or whatever, great. No need to hack the device or the program or ...

Re: greek text on android

Also, for some reason, in your app, what should be, I suppose, right arrows appear as check marks, but that doesn't seem to stop them from working ok.

Re: greek text on android

I installed another virtual phone and downloaded your app. Looks really good. My Cruz eReader is only Android 2.0, so I don't think it will run on that, but I can run your app on the emulator on my desktop, which is better than nothing, I suppose.

Re: greek text on android

Yeah, NAU is a good font. I am hoping that Google sees the need for android tablet users to have some easier way to add fonts. I have a cheap Maylong tablet, a Cruise eReader, and a Pandigital Novel, none of which have access to the Market, and an Android 1.5 virtual phone on my PC with the android ...

Re: greek text on android

I WAS able to get a polytonic Greek html page to display tonight on the program, but I had to construct a simple html page to do it (in Notepad, the way I used to make my very first web pages back in the nineties) and then paste the text (from a utf-8) document into the html page. The html code was ...

Re: greek text on android

I took a look at Phlash Cards. It says android 2.0 or something, and I've got lower than that. I have been using a flash card program for android called Remata. It's bare bones, but works just fine for me. I can input csv or xml card files. His program uses the Gentium font. Does Phlash Cards let yo...

Re: greek text on android

I was speaking of a text reader, not just flashcards, so if you wanted to read book one of Herodotus in a utf-8 encoded text file, you could do that. I spoke too soon about the html in that program, because I haven't been able to open a polytonic Greek one, but the text file display works just fine....

Re: greek text on android

I don't know if this will help, but an app called Hebrew Reader for Android seems to be capable of displaying txt and html files of Polytonic Greek if the files are in utf-8 encoding. It displays with a black background and white text, but maybe that's no problem. It was a free app when I got it.

Greek and OCR program

Somewhere on one of the forum messages, I saw somebody wondering about a Greek OCR program. Here is a link to IdeaTech, which makes Anagnostis, which can OCR both ancient and modern Greek, so it should be of interest. Unfortunately, my budgetary constraints don't enable me to try it out at this time...
