Capture protected document content as text without the need for breaking DRM
Many users want to convert documents for personal use, formatted for the viewing applications they are familiar with. There are several conversion tools available but for documents that are DRM protected, the number of free tools are particularly limited. Calibre is one of those free tools and is used, with a DeDRM extension, to convert Kindle books to a variety of other formats. Furthermore, in the case of Kindle books, the DeDRM tool requires that the book be downloaded using an older copy of the Amazon Kindle app that can provide the file format supported by the DeDRM extension. gbCapture can capture document text content from the document’s native viewer without the need for DRM removal.

I'm an electronics engineer. I worked for Texas Instruments in Dallas as part of their Equipment Group, which provided military electronics for the US Military. Raytheon bought that part of TI and I worked for Raytheon about 10 years before retiring in 2007.

In retirement I have started a company, New Vision Concepts, which provides software (EZReader) for folks with eye diseases such as macular degeneration. I got interested in using PowerBASIC for writing applications, using it to develop an app to help my mother-in-law read books. I've since expanded the software suite to about 100 apps for low vision users.

Wife, children, grandkids, tennis and EZReader consume my time. I'm busier in retirement than I was before I "retired"!
