    Question Can I use controller to read scanned booklets ?

    Hi all !

    I am a long-time owner of 2 SB3, and I am thinking about buying controller,

    I was wondering if I scan booklet of CD ( I have a lot of classical CDs) into .txt file, can I access and read the booklet on controller screen.

    No and yes. If you OCR-scan, the resulting text file cannot be displayed. But you can put the text file (or the relevant part of it) in the tags of the tracks. In Flac-files, put the text in the tag LYRICS. The content of these tags can be read on the Controller via the Lyrics entry on the track page.

    Thanks for the reply and suggestions

    Hi Teus !

    Thanks for you reply. It is indeed a solution, but I hope in the future, Slim can put .txt reader (hell, may be a even "lite" pdf one), so it will be possible to have both music and booklet entirely in accessible digitally. Well. it might require bigger screen :-) , so we are speaking about Controller 2G.

    Meanwhile, I am also thinking about Ipod touch as a remote. if it's jailbreaked, there are ftp clients/pdf readers available, so it can be used as a remote/reader and price is comparable with controller.
