I have taken over maintainership of the FuseCompress 0.9 branch. After two dozen bugfixes it looks really stable now. Check the Google Code page with the SVN repo.

Lecturer eBook reader for TomTom Go

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Something I came up with during HackWeek III: Lecturer, an eBook reader for TomTom Go 730 (and possibly 930) GPS navigation systems that can talk. It uses the text-to-speech system normally used to read out street names and incoming text messages and sounds surprisingly good. Apart from that it is a normal plain text eBook reader supporting variable margins and spacing as well as both UTF-8 and ISO 8859-1 encodings.
