bitrate of mp3

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 08:23:17 GMT

I need to put 21 audio files in the book, but since they contain speech only, then high quality sound is not required at all. And by changing to mono and low bitrate (with Total Audio Converter) size can be reduced by 3-4 times. But Sigil plays just a file with high quality. Browsers (Chrome, Edge) and our test devices work without any problems with both audio files. - Are there any restrictions for mp3 files?

Open with... (testing a new feature)

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 07:55:20 GMT

Hi Thank you for your tireless efforts to improve Koreader. According to the github site a new and amazing feature "open with" has just been added (highlighting is mine). I would be very keen to test it. ---Quote--- Those willing to experiment can try the new Open with… option (#3653, #3678). You can choose which rendering engine to use for files that are supported by multiple rendering engines. *Most notably you can choose to use either crengine or MuPDF for EPUB *and FB2 files. MuPDF support is still experimental, but it may be faster in some cases. T ---End Quote--- According to the MuPDF site, i should first set up some preferences to tune the rendering engine for Epub viewing: MuPDF can open PDF, XPS, CBZ, and EPUB documents. Command Line Options Code: --------- -p password The password needed to open a password protected PDF file. -r resolution Set the initial zoom level, specified as DPI. The default value is 72. -W width Set the page width in points for EPUB layout. -H height Set the page height in points for EPUB layout. -S size Set the default font size in points for EPUB layout. -U stylesheet Specify a CSS file containing user styles to load for EPUB layout. --------- I have the latest OTA update (v2015.11-1525-gca6a486) but cannot find it. Am I missing something? (PW3 Kindle)

On double clicking on audio (in Book Browser), the file is opened each time in a new tab, not in the previously opened one.

Hi, I'm a longtime e-reader and user of Kindle devices, wanting to get a bit more involved in Kindle development. Currently on KOA2 and playing around with its new options. This looks like a good place to start!

Calibre excruciatingly slow at adding new books or editing metadata

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 03:50:06 GMT

I used Calibre a few years ago and it was fairly responsive. Installed the 64-bit version tonight on my new PC and it's moving really slowly for some reason. Adding books is taking forever and even editing metadata takes awhile to save changes. Is there a setting I could be overlooking? The program is using virtually no CPU or memory resources, so I don't think the PC is bottlenecking it.

Need help with Italian please

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 02:59:44 GMT

I am preparing The Italian by Ann Radclife for the MR library. The name Santa Della Pieta occurs several times in the text I am using from the University of Adelaide ebook library, and in the Penguin and Oxford Classics editions. Sometimes, in all three sources, Pieta is spelled with an acute accent over the e, and sometimes with a grave accent over the a. Google translate suggests that the grave accent over the a is correct. Which should I use? So far as I can tell Pieta means Pity, and I can't believe that the context could change the word's meaning to require a different form and different placement of the accent. And I can't accept that I should use whatever is in the original text whether it's correct or not - especially as I can't find the original text anyway.

Aura Restoring...

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 02:25:55 GMT

Hello Maybe this problem will have a basic solution, but I'm still not getting my Kobo to work. I bought my Kobo Aura (KA1) about 1 month ago (used / refurbished) and it always worked very well until a few days ago. Two days ago, I was reading an epub, and the screen completely frezzes. I made a Soft Reset first, and then a Factory Reset, and after a few tries it turned on, but after setting up Wi-fi, the screen with 5 points to "Restoring ..." will always appear in loop. When I sometimes connect to the "Select language" menu, I can connect Kobo to the computer, and then test some firmware available online. After disconnecting Kobo from the computer, it does "Update" and then enters the "Restoring ..." loop again. I already installed the last firmware, but the problem always persisted. Surely this situation has already happened to someone. Can you give me any tips? Thank you.

Hello to you all

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 02:00:02 GMT

Hello to you all. I'm from Portugal, and here I do not find communities about this subjects as active as this. I found this forum after a Google search, just like other members, and I found this community very positive. I am still very new in this area, and I see that I have much to learn. (I learned more about my ereader with 1 hour of visiting this forum, than until today.):thumbsup: Thank you.

Coming 2nd version of Onyx Note without light

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 01:26:59 GMT

As i noticed the Onyx Note it will doesn't have frontlight I writted to Onyx to ask about if the second version coming in many months will have it. They answered me there is no space for the leds due the touch and stylus sensors and even there is no technology to implement a frontlight with a flexible screens (also they said to me it will have HDMI) . I also want to use topic to see if there enough people here who preferes it with a frontlight and instead one of the sensors (touch or stylus). Who knows? Maybe there is enough people who wants it and we can make they focus in that. I consider the posibility of being alone with this requeriment hahaha So... Do you want the 2nd version of Note with frontlight instead the both stylus and touch sensors?? And anyone knows something about frontlights in flexible screens and their problems? I really want this eReader, but I ain't gonna give a buck for a eReader without light in 2018,

I'm new to Calibre and I need help!

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:21:33 GMT

Last evening I updated my Calibre. I also had a problem with my computer and went on the Microsoft site for help. An online tech from Microsoft tried to fix my problem, and by so doing, changed alot of my settings which I am soooo unhappy about. The biggest problem is when I opened my Calibre Program and found NO listed books that I have worked on for months, organizing and download the metadata and pics to go with the books and changing them to my format. Please help me! Can I get them back? The Calibre Library is listed in my file explorer and has books in the folder. But the ones I need are on the Calibre page where I add new books. Please give me step by step instructions as I am not very techy in this type of thing. I am sick at heart to think all my hard work is for naught!:thanks::help:

Amazon says all my collections have 0 books

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 23:34:17 GMT

I spent a lot of time on my Voyager (I now use a Kindle Paperwhite) organizing my books into collections. I just went to the My Content page in Amazon, and when I click to view all my collections, then click on each collection, it says there are no books! Any ideas?

No Available Formats

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 23:27:24 GMT

I have been using Calibre for many years. Suddenly I have been getting the error message that books that I try to open in Calibre on my windows 10 computer have "No available formats" The books are still in my list and when I click on them from within Calibre the meta data comes up but the book itself does not, just the above message. Any thoughts as to how I might fix this. I searched for this message but did not find anything to come up on the topic. Thanks for any help resolving this.

Help with images

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:50:53 GMT

I have an ePub where there graphic under the chapter title. The graphic is 1200 lines long. That's fine. But what I want is for the graphic not to exceed the window which it is doing now. How can a graphic be coded such that it doesn't exceed the space reaming after the chapter title? Below is the relevant code fo the section and the CSS code that goes with it. Code: ---------




--------- Code: --------- body { widows: 1; orphans: 1; margin-top: 0; margin-right: 0; margin-bottom: 0; margin-left: 0; text-align: justify; } img { max-width: 100%; max-height: 100%; } p { margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0; text-indent: 1.2em; } .h2 /*"chapter"*/ { font-size: 1em; margin-top: 0.8em; margin-bottom: 0; text-indent: 0; margin-left: 0; margin-right: 0; text-align: center; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; } .h2n /*chapter number*/ { font-size: 1.2em; margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0.8em;; text-indent: 0; margin-left: 0; margin-right: 0; font-weight: bold; text-align: center; } .image2 { margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0; text-indent: 0; margin-left: 0; margin-right: 0; text-align: center; font-weight: normal; } ---------

Aura KA1: some chapters aren't complete

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:46:11 GMT

Kobo Aura 1 Occasionally I'll get a book where every so often (probably near the end of a chapter) a chapter suddenly ends without even finishing a sentence. And the next page has the beginning of the next chapter. Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks!
