Hi there.
Thanks for the great ebook reader.
After checking various Android bookreaders to read epub books with localized text, CoolReader is the best book reader which supports embedded font in epub.
Only problem is Android's lacking support for displaying Indic (Indian) Language, which is still bugging to latest ICS version, due to which Indic text are rendered poorly.
Is there anyway, text can be displayed independently from system, just like Acrobat Reader displays Pdf books?

Is Indic language left-to-right?
Do you have .ttf font with Indic characters support?
Is your book in Unicode (e.g. UTF-8) encoding?

If so, just put .ttf to SD/fonts directory, and choose it in CoolReader's settings.

First of all, thanks Buggins for the splendid work.
This is my favourite program for reading.
My question:
Do you think it is possible to implement partial refresh mode for SONY PRS-T1/T2 on CoolReader as AlReader does?
I think CoolReader for Nook has this functionality.
Thanks

A suggestion for epubs: in lvstsheet.cpp LVCssSelectorRule::check try this one:
case cssrt_class: // E.class
#if 0 //[RP]
// todo
{
lString16 val = node->getAttributeValue(attr_class);
val.lowercase();
// if ( val.length() != _value.length() )
// return false;
//CRLog::trace("attr_class: %s %s", LCSTR(val), LCSTR(_value) );
return val == _value;
}
break;
#else
{ // class="one two three"
lString16 val = node->getAttributeValue(attr_class);
val.lowercase();

lString16 first, second;
lString16 splitme = val;
// convert tabs to blanks
lString16 tabulator("\t");
while (splitme.replace( tabulator, cs16(" "))) {

;
}
//while not a single class name
while (splitme.split2(cs16(" "), first, second)) {

// if the are multiple blanks between class names
second.trim(); // trims spaces at beginning and end of string
if (first == _value || second == _value) // equals one of the parts
return true;
else
splitme = second; // see if the second part can be split
}
// if cannot be split or does not match any part
return val == _value;
}
break;
#endif

Thank you for Reply. Yes, Indic language is left-to-right. And I had embedded the font in epub through sigil. and its unicode encoded. I have enabled Document embedded fonts in CSS section of options in CoolReader. The font is displayed in book correctly. Problem is android is not displaying proper text rendering. half letter are not displayed correctly. Even in ICS ver 4.
The problem is discussed here:

Thank you for the reply. Will this solve the issue of character rendering? Where should I put this code. As I'm not coder myself, pls bear my ignorance.

Sorry, no. I posted this snippet in the hope that Buggins, the brain behind CoolReader might get motivated to fix a CSS bug (multiple classes definition).

I came accross that this morning, so you're not the only one. I thought it was the book fault until I tried several of them. Hopefully it will bev resolved soon.

Cool Reader TTS Going Backwards

Hello,

My first post. Sorry if I've messed up!

First of all I must say I like Cool Reader very much as it has the Text to Speech function.
I have version 3.1.1.4.apk. downloaded from Getjar I think it was, on my Kindle Fire HD.

The problem I'm having is that the TTS is going backwards! it gets to the bottom of the page and instead of going to the next page up, it goes to the next page down.
I don't know how to fix this. Any suggestions?
Thank you.

adding new language

HI,

Cool reader is really great software, I want to setup it for my Grandma for reading.

please is there a way to add to interface also Czech language, and Czech hyphen dictionary?

I can see, that in windows version Czech is already there. There are some guides on net how to add it manually using APK tool. I tried it, but it is not working for me on new versions (it worked only for Cool_Reader_v3.0.51-20, but this version does not have search book option.)

I can prepare the values-cs strings, and Czech_hyphen_(Alan) can be use from windows version.

I use coolreader on 3 devices, Nexus 7, Atrix 4g and pc. When using the android devices I can see the % of book read and easily find where I left off when switching between them, however when using PC I have to search or browse to find my place. Is there a easier way to find where I've left off when switching between PC and android?

Hi folks,

I'll start off by admitting I haven't read all 47 pages of this thread, but I love Coolreader and have been using it for some months.

One thing which I'm wondering if it's possible to do however: I use almost exclusively epubs, and epubs can have a book summary embedded in the metadata. I'm wondering if it's possible to view this book summary somewhere within Coolreader?

I have over a hundred books on my phone, and I must admit that I've forgotten the specifics of what some of them are about, so the ability to review this metadata when I'm browsing through the library to select a new book would be very helpful. I've tried long-pressing on the book in the list view, but don't get the option there.

Any way? Thanks for the help,

ianc
