[Suggestion] "Word wise" for Koreader
#1  Uphantom89 06-22-2019, 09:03 PM
Hello bro.
I did send this request on github- koreader.
However, It seem that it's hard to embed this function.
I would like to post it here, in case any developer interest in take a look.
Description of suggested funtion: show word wise like kindle original reader..
Thank you

Cross-ref to GH issue: https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/3044

It is something that interests me, but I can't really see it working on a device due to the processing requirements. Those Amazon files are preprocessed or possibly in some cases manually crafted.

There is a tool for making word wise for an azw3 file. But the solution for rearranging text and displaying word wise is still not available.
Is it possible for Koreader to support azw3 first? In the meantime, developer can take a look at azw3 extension.

That would be a hard no, unless someone with a severely masochistic inclination chimes in (KF8 is an Amazon-specific, proprietary format. It has been RE'd to some admittedly rather large extent, true, but, still).

Ah, my mistake. The tool which i mentioned above is for generating word wise for mobi file which was support by Koreader.

It'd be possible to somewhat mimic Word Wise with <ruby> tags. (For a proof-of-concept see this old post.)

Unfortunately, crengine doesn't support <ruby> tags.

Too technical for me, honestly. But I believe, there must be some work around way to mimic word wise as you mention above.

Not without extensive work.

One could probably implement a workaround based on @Doitsu's suggestion relatively easily. Use something like those RUBY elements as suggested and let something like Calibre or Prince spit out a PDF in the right output size. Exactly how much effort that would be, depends mainly on how much Python code from https://github.com/tmilovanov/wisecreator can be reused as is. It should save a few hours writing the actual NLTK analysis code anyway.

Oh, yeah, I was in a "CRe/ePub" mindframe .

You and your cheaty PDF ways ;p.
