PRS-T1 Text To Speech Reader

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 18:43:02 GMT

Hello, a few years ago I got one of the last Sony PRS-T1 devices with a built-in headphone jack. I've rooted the device and installed Cool Reader along with Ivona Text To Speech when the app was still free*. So I can enjoy acoustic reading while riding my bike. Ivona allowed 1 voice for free so I installed a German voice named Marlene. Now I'd like to read some English books but I didn't manage to install a different voice. Replacing the Ivona data files wouldn'd do the trick. Should I install another reader or TTS engine? What's recommended? Google Text To Speech would be great but that's not for Android 2.3, unfortunately. Best regards, Hein B *) It still works if I set the system date back back to, say 2011. If the PRS-T1 Android OS would allow to go back to 2006 even the weekdays would match but next year, 2018 will match with 2012 ;-)

Is there anybody on this forum who could share experience with DPT-RP1 with Android? Mainly interested in if the Bluetooth works with BT page turners or BT keyboards.

DPT-RP1 new firmware coming?

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:31:32 GMT

With a release of new Boox Max2 I'm deciding between this or Sony's Digital Paper. Anybody heard about a new firmware coming for DPT-RP1 which would fix crippled Bluetooth to enable wireless page turners/keyboard connections?

Also, let me know whether you have lastest software to upgrade my PRS-900. Please let me know. Thanks in Advance Jay

PRS-T3 "This certificate is not from a trusted authority"

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 22:18:59 GMT

I guess this is related to the Reader running Android 2.3 which may be missing some root certificates. Does anybody have a workaround? It renders the browser and Kobo Bookstore pretty much unusable. Image:

Prevent SETUP partition/volume from mounting (macOS X)

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 20:50:03 GMT

The SETUP volume mounting annoys me for a couple of reasons: 1. calibre does not eject it 2. I do not want to use the setup files. I found my own solution, on macOS X, to prevent the SETUP partition from mounting: $ diskutil info /Volumes/SETUP This gives us the UUID of the volume we are interested in, ready for the next part $ sudo pico /etc/fstab UUID=5B7F482A-CBB1-371D-9739-7823473EEA35 none msdos ro,noauto To save the file press Control+X, then press Y, and then press Enter to confirm. $ sudo automount -vc This refreshes the automount settings. Voila, no more SETUP mounting when you plug in the reader.

DPT-RP1 sync to OneDrive broken since FCU

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 16:46:40 GMT

Ever since the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the Digital Paper App refuses to sync to local OneDrive folders. This used to work just fine. Has anyone found a workaround for this? And also, is there anyone that installed the FCU and who can still sync to a OneDrive folder? Symptoms: - I cannot set a OneDrive folder as the sync folder - existing OneDrive sync setting now gives an error when trying to sync
