This not a plugin as was requested, and so maybe off-topic, however if they are a Windows user and have speech, have they considered trying its built in Speech Recognition in its options for accessibility (other operating systems probably offer similar, but I cannot comment on them)?

If they haven't then the only cost to set it up to try is that for a cheap microphone or headset.

Among the many voice commands, scrolling in all directions is supported.

I'm assuming you mean in the ebook viewer

The Javascript library "JQuery' has as an Autoscroll plug-in ===>>> http://www.yeesiang.com/jquery.autoScroller/demo.htm. There's bound to be others.

I think (could be wrong though) the webkit layout engine that calibre uses supports Javascript. Ergo it ought to be possible - but via a plugin - hmmmm?

If its to be universally available then it might require a customised version of the ebook-viewer code.

I have a vague memory that there is a thread here somewhere about voice commands in calibre (sorry I can't find it right now) which IIRC Kovid indicated there were some problems with integrating voice control with the Qt library. That may change with a later version of Qt, which again IIRC is on foot as we speak, but how close it is - we'll just have to see. But I may have dreamt it all, too, or got calibre confused with something else.

If it is the book viewer you're after, then maybe there's a reader for IOS and/or Android that does auto scroll with voice control - you can run Android on Windows using Blue<something> Streak maybe

I think a plugin to allow some mods to the Content Server would be kinda cool.

Since I have a Kindle it gets really grouchy with the "Get" link, and generally fails to get the book. Being able to click "mail book" from the content server would be a really nice option to have.

There is a kind of hacked script that I found on the net, but it requires installing a proper webserver and exec-ing a python script. I would rather use the built in smtp script that does the auto-throttling..

Sadly, I can write stuff in bash, but have no idea where to begin with Python in building out something like this. Anyone else think this would be an interesting plugin?

I think that something similar to this would be a great idea for a plugin. Basically a way to print out a kind of "digital wallpaper" with QR code links to your books on it.

Hope this allows posting of URL's
http://www.linuxintheshell.org/2012/...-001-qrencode/

Since I dont know python well enough to write the loop, perhaps someone else could. It looks like you could simply generate a descrete QR code for the URL's in a big loop and then deal with the resulting PNG files to make the wallpapers.

I'm not sure how practical something like that would be. This idea is more about interior decorating then about books; you can only see what is imaged. This seems inherently limited.

Alternately, you could use a large flat screen tv on the wall while running calibre displaying the Cover Grid and/or the Cover Browser. Right click, Book Details and you've got most of the info you'll need to determine if the selected book is worth pursuing. You'll have an ISBN/Merchant ID, back cover blurb, keywords, etc - depending on what you've put into calibre's database, of course.

Assuming you've got the computer and tv already, all you need is a cable. You can change the displayed books at any time you want. Much cheaper than printing up another bit of wallpaper.

Lightbulb Suggestion

First of all I'm totally new (to the forum, to the community), so I apologize if I'm trying to suggest something already discussed...

As a heavy user of calibre, I've come accross a series of troubles since I decided to start cleaning My 28.000 ebooks collection. Titles_written_like_that or-even-like-that and something.around.this where a few of the examples I've seen. Not to mention the number of records where the metadata invert the Author and Title info.

Because of this I've finally decided to try and look for an automated solution to help me out with those messed up metadatas. As a programming student, I think i'm already able to do such a thing, but first I tried to find out if anyone else had something going on this direction. Reading the suggestion list, I didn't find any.

So, my idea is to start a simple metadata fixer up.

What do you think? Or am i the only one annoied by this stuff? I accept every kind of constructive criticism

You can use Bulk Edit Metadata to regex underscores/periods/hyphens into spaces, and there is an option to switch Author and Title as well.

well... Didn't find it under plugins, or even through a quick google search. :/

Correction: Just figured it out. Thanks

Select a few books - click the "Edit metadata" toolbar button (or right click button and select "Bulk Edit" if a single book)

Use the various tabs to do the various jobs you need doing :-)

Ideal plugin for autistic readers

I posted info about this in the developers forum but this works as well. I need an ebook reader that will allow the parent to change the pictures in the ebook and let her print it out. This allows her to personalize the pictures for her child. Please contact me ASAP if you can do this. I teach several autistic children and I'm changing the pictures myself. I don't have enough time to do so and this would get the parent involved in tahing her child at home.

Please help!

Edit the book with calibre's Edit Book feature.

Actually, I am thinking you could just use The Unpack Book feature, which may be easier here. What it does is explode the ebook into a folder full of the book's resources. Then just drop in replacement pictures into the "images" folder, and return to calibre and select "rebuild book".

As long as the new pictures have the same filename, they will update the picture placeholders, and the pictures will be referenced in the book.

You can also print a book from calibre's Ebook Viewer.
