Saving and Exporting Sending to eBook Readers
Type in a name for the new workflow.
Choose a document source: Scan, Load files or Load digital camera files. With file input,
you will be prompted to choose input files when the workflow starts running.
Enter the e-mail address linked to your Kindle reader.
Provide a name for the output file. All recognition results enter a single file.
Choose Save to save the workflow for later use, or Save and Run to immediately run the
workflow and transfer its results to your Kindle device.
This simple workflow has three steps: acquire images, perform OCR and send to Kindle.
Recognition language can be selected. All other settings take either default values or values
optimized for Kindle.
When you run the Kindle Assistant for the first time, a customized output converter is created,
called 'Kindle Document'. It converts colored items to grayscale, pictures to 72 dpi and sets
Formatted Text to remove any columns. This converter is then available for later processing -
with or without workflows.
You can modify the Kindle workflow using the Workflow Assistant, to add other steps and
change settings. For instance you can specify a page range or add more saving steps, so the
file is not only sent to Kindle, but also saved to file with different settings (for instance with
Flowing Page and color retention). Take care not to make modifications that are unsuitable for
Kindle - e.g. creating multiple output files, setting non-supported languages etc.
You can also compile workflows targeting Kindle with the Workflow Assistant; set a Send in
Mail step, choose the Kindle output converter in its settings and enter the Kindle e-mail
address. You can do the same without using a workflow by choosing Send in Mail in the
Export results drop-down list.
