Re: Accessible ePub to Docs converter?


I don’t read using Daisy.

As someone else said, personal preference.

Hi all,

Why would you want to convert them to .docx? Epub books are similar to DAISY books and will play in any DAISY reader unless they are incrypted.

Hello list,
So I’m trying to convert some ePub files to Docs. I have both Codex
and Calibre in conjunction with Carlos Nazario’s eBook-convert GUI to
make Calibre more screen reader accessible. In both programs however,
I do not find the option to select docs as the output format. There’s
TXT, RTF, PDF, Mobi etc., but no docs. Unless I’m missing something or
if there are limitations to Carlos’s Calibre add-on, I thought Calibre
would be able to do this, but I’m finding that not to be the case.
So… am I missing something and can Calibre in fact make this
conversion? Does anyone know of an accessible converter that can do
ePub to docs? There seems to be a bunch of online options, but all
things being equal, I’d prefer a desktop solution. Absent that, Has
anyone tried any of these online conversion sites and if so, how well
do they work?
I’m using the latest Jaws 2021 version.
