    "Electronic book reader"

    June 15, 2012  |   By LincNeb


    Free, it seems to work quite well, which no doubt is a reason to get such high ratings from other reviewers. It converts between formats and it is fairly easy to use.


    But irritates me the most? Is the cost that upgrades! I do believe I have the CNET announcements for this now turned off, since it seems to happen every other day. :-(

    So far, I have found no connection to the Gutenberg press which would have been handy to have. If it is there, I haven't seen it

    Ah, the joys of Voice recognition! There is no cost to upgrade, except the constant reminder to contribute, and as I said, as has many others, it is a good program. So, it may very well be the best of its type of program for the PC, but does it have to have constant tinkering by the author?
