Hi. I frequently come up to OCR errors in the books I read.

To correct these errors, my method is, saving that flawed words and/or lines to "My Clippings" and after that, opening both "Clippings.txt" and the .epub file on PC to make corrections.

This whole process takes very long time and obviously boring. Here's the idea:

"On the Calibre's Edit Book window, a plugin that

- pulls the txt file from a specified location,
- finds the highlighted parts in the book,
- asks the user for confirmation and replacing,
- additional ideas..."

would be very effective. Anyone shares this situation? Is that possible to code a plugin like this?

I've fixed some eBooks that were ORCed and had a number of errors in them. It did not take a very long time to find and fix the errors. It was more of a hassle to mark all the errors.

I try to fix all the typographical errors before I start reading a book

Many OCR errors can be fixed with a few well crafted Search and Replace regular expressions (which can be saved for reuse), have a look in the Editor sub forum and also the Sigil forum, particularly at the Reg Ex Sticky threads.

Spell checking can also help, with split words in particu lar [sic]. A search in the full word list (in the spell checker) for '-' can help get rid of extraneous hyphens, and Sigil's Reports can help identify 'weird characters'.

I would more likely find use for a plug in as requested in the context of correcting grammatical/stylistic 'errors' rather than typographical errors.

Thank you for your answers. I'm sorry, I guess I forgot to give one important info: My native language is Turkish.

For Anglo-Saxon languages like English, OCR process generally works better and ends with minimal error counts. But Turkish grammar and linguistic is a little tricky.

By "OCR errors", I meant some other problems more of typo's. Actually, after ABBYY, I find typo's etc with regular expressions and then I even do a second check with MS Word for grammar mistakes.

Although, I stumble upon mistyped words when reading. For example:

A sentence like "Mısır yerim" is being recognized as "Alışır yerim". Despite their different meanings, both sentences are grammatically correct in Turkish. And no spell-check method notices this OCR mistake.

I hope I have been more clear now.

I like the plugins that allow you to create a recipe e-book from a recipe website. Would it be possible to get one to create an e-book of low carb recipes from atkins.com

I'd like to ask if anyone has created this plug-in or is working on it. I'd be happy to help as a beta-tester. The plug-in is a great idea.

Thankxx, Mixx

I wrote simple Evernote to XHTML converter, just to check is it possible to write evernote2epub converter. I'm not much into calibre plugins developing (does calibre provide library to make an epub from few xhtml files?), so I want to ask if someone want to provide such plugin. Idea is that plugin would download and convert to epub all notes with specific tag, e.g. epub on user request. Plugin should also check if notes were updated (on user request). It's easy since Evernote Note object has last edition date.

Below is my simple converter. It was tested with Evernote sandbox and Linux. Calibre plugin will require developer key, but it's free (you need register to obtain key). Converter is saved in evernote-sdk-python/sample/client/ directory. If you have any question I will be happy to answer. Thanks.

Unfortunately, I cannot code plugins, but it seems to me that this one could go along the lines of Krittika's "Wiki Reader" plug-in.

Evernote even lets the user select a number of notes and can (via context menu) generate the URL of all the selected notes at once. This list could be pasted into a popup field, processed one after the other an placed as chapters into an ebook.

Anyone interested to put this into a plug-in?

Thanxx, Mixx

This sounds very useful to me. But my programming skills are rather in the negative range.

If possible - which it may well not be - I'd like to be able to have more than one Dewey number for some books like "Correlations between immuno-neuro-endrocrinology and socio-eco-political indices". The OCLC's Classify tool reply does seem to list more than one DDC for some books.

Not sure if anyone else had the idea

But in a normal book you can see a list of series by the author before or after the title

Would be awesome if Calibre could make a a extra page next to the cover of every book

Which shows the Series list of the Author which it downloads from the Series list you made in Calibre with the book your reading now Bolded in that List

Would help managing which book is first and it helps you to figure out which is the next book on the reading list

Idea: A plugin that downloads every free book it can find in the "get books" section.

Features I could think of:
Set Interval: It downloads one free book per day? (Surprise book!)
Space limit: Cant download more than x megabyte per day
Auto Deletes books you didn't read.

Maybe you can think of more.

Library Annex?

Sorry if something like this exists, but I've been looking around and haven't seen it:

I have a massive number of pdfs and ebooks on my computer (academic journals and things) and I'd like to save space by moving them to an external drive, but still be able to search for them in some sort of more sophisticated way than a text file with their names.

Is there/could there be some sort of plugin that allows for this? Maybe saves the titles and metadata for searching, but with a note that they're on a different (*and not always plugged in) drive?

Thanks!

A Better User Categories Editor (or alternative?)

So few are the times that I get frustrated with Calibre these days that I find myself not haunting the newsgroup, soaking up every new post as it appears. As a result, I've lost my searching skills. When my favourite niece asked me to include a certain author in her selection list in the family Calibre database, I called up the User Categories Editor and went through the labourious process of finding the author in question and adding him to the list of Applied Items. Two days later, a different niece says she wants me to amalgamate her list with her aunt's and for both to get email when something new appears for their now combined list.

No on-point answers appeared searching for various combinations of user, category, editor, export, import, merge and document (more of the last one later).

Harrumph!

It occurs to me that it would be nice to have a search box just below the filter box in the Editor. KiwiDude's User Category PlugIn can stand in it's place and is much, much faster, but it would be handy to have the facility in place WHILE IN the editor, which takes a bit of time to start up ... about the length of time for me to palm my forehead and say I'd wished I had chosen the plugin instead ... or some words to that effect.

But even the User Category plugIn doesn't do the merge thing from one user category to another.

And here's another thing I wish for. I'd like a documentation capability for user categories. I'd like the LOOOOOONG string that's probably stored CSV-like in the Calibre database system for each category. That way I could create a COMBINED list of my own. But THEN, I would have to have an ability to PASTE BACK IN the results of my dogged editing. Which would have to be error-checked on the way in. And such pasting would absolutely be required to be done into an empty user category for safety's sake. And wouldn't it be great to have an ability to have ALL of the data for ALL user categories exported to a CSV file so that I could bring it into a spreadsheet and see at a glance which authors were shared by ... whatever criteria.

And another thing that MIGHT BE INTERESTING is that this paste method might be able to inject NEW AUTHORS that aren't yet presented in the Calibre database. Saaaay for example, somebody watches a Daily Show episode and wants the book that Stewart is interviewing the author about (an example for me would be the first appearance of William Kwamkwamba who was touting The Boy Who Harnassed the Wind). Well, that author might NOT be in the database already. But everybody wants some notice when I do add the book eventually (I eventually bought Kwamkamba's book in both dead-wood AND ebook versions). I do a monthly search through the books I've added and see who is on record as wanting the book. But I'm limited by not being able to add something in User Categories Editor that is not there ... the author. (I eventually worked around it by adding a fake WANTED Magazine article with the author's name in question, to get him on the lookout list).

So, to summarize: In the User Categories Editor, I want a search box, a documentation utility and a paste utility, with the paste utility doubling as a merge utility. Or a standalone merge utility. I'm greedy, not unreasonably picky.

Any or all of that would be immensely welcome.

Thanks, GM
