Palm Pilot Latin Grammar Books

Post by MOVERLY » Sat Jan 10, 2004 7:11 pm

I don't know if this will be of interest to anyone, but I wanted a way to have at least one good grammar book available for reference on my Palm Pilot. I also wanted the ability to edit the text to add my own references. This meant that just downloading the pdf version would not be helpful. I ended up running the Allen and Greenough book through a very sophisticated OCR application and turning it into an editable Word document. Then I broke the file into four parts and installed it on my Palm Pilot. Works great. If anyone is interested, I would be pleased to make this available to others.

Welcome to Textkit!

Wow, a whole grammar reference on a Palm! That's neat. But I can't imagine myself pulling out my Palm to lookup Latin stuff. If I'm working on Latin, I'd rather pull out a book and flip through that instead of straining my eyes on my PDA.

I travel quite a bit. That's why I wanted the ability to carry a grammar with me. It gives me the ability to quickly look up a point of grammar anywhere. I also have an extensive set of vocabularly flashcards for use on the Palm Pilot.

Where did you download/buy this? I'm thinking this might be a neater way to study on the go instead of carrying actualy flash cards that can get damaged/lost.

I'm halfway there, I already have a Palm! It's an old one though. I even have a newer one and played with it for a few weeks, but never fully made the transition from the older one to the newer one.

I have two palms. I was born with them. They haven't really helped in learning Latin or Greek though, except by supporting my fingers.

They can uphold a book (for geeks: that's a Word doc printed on paper), but if it is uploaded depends on the state of my cpu (erm...brain) :wink: .
