Clicking this button brings up the save box.
The text can be displayed showing confidence/character this button turns this on and off.
The text can also show the various font sizes this can be turned on and off using this button.
If you have selected any text it can be removed using this button.
If you have selected any text it can be inserted at the caret using this button.
Clicking middle mouse button over the main text window will bring up a menu offering these options as well as the opportunity to disconnect the Pocket Reader.
If you have some of the text selected then it is possible to save just the selection in the above formats.
Also it is possible to join the lines of text when they are only broken by a ‘line break’ and not a ‘carriage return’. Using the configuration options you can also vary the divider that goes in place of a line break e.g. None, Tab, Comma, Space or Carriage return. This allows you to scan in tables and input them into spreadsheets.
This is a small extra application for the Pocket Reader which allows you to input text from the Pocket Reader directly into databases, spreadsheets and writable icons. It is simply a case of scanning the text, placing the cursor where you want it and clicking on the iconbar icon. The Pocket Reader will then send the text and clear its memory.
The use of this application can be invaluable when transferring records from paper copies to computerised databases.
