Googling books with the +e-sword was a brilliant idea. I haven't found the books I was looking for, but I've been helped in a better way of looking around. I've never used the expression e-sword with the hyphen in any of my searches. However, now I am finding way too many! eSnips alone has over 6000 books, I never knew that eSword was so extensively supported!

In my search for the BDAG (as it is affectionately abreviated) I've realised just how popular it is in it's bound form, but also how pharasaically expensive it is too. Surprisingly it is nowhere to be found for e-sword. My search for the McClintlock and StrongCyclopedia has drawn a blank also.

Someone mentioned that they had the McClintlock and Strong Cyclopedia in Word format. I couldn't find your post again to ask you personally, but if you would feel comfortable in letting me have it, I would like use it as is, and maybe at some point make it my first esword module achievement. Thank you for considering this. :)

I started work on such a critter several years ago, but didn't go very far with it:
  • Editing the audio file is extremely tedious. It takes roughly fifteen minutes to isolate each word.
  • Royalty payments are sky high. Specifically, the fee paid to Harris Fox Agency;
If e-Sword was self-voicing, then creating the resource would be much simpler, and cheaper.

That does not appear to be useful, since whoever scanned it didn't get recognize Greek letters. For example, here's a quote.

kajgwv
kajgwv (since Il. 21, 108, also inscr. [Meisterhans 3-Schw. 72]; pap. [ Mayser 159 w. exx. for all cases; cf. also UPZ 78, 15 [159 BC ]; PSI 540, 17; PTebt. 412, 4 kaigwv ]; LXX [ Thackeray 137 f ]; Jos. , Ant. 7,
212. Formed by crasis fr. kai; ejgwv ) dat. kajmoiv, acc. kajmev. Cf. Bl-D. §18; Mlt.-H. 84.
1. and I oJ pathvr sou kajgwv Lk 2:48 . Cf. Mt 11:28 ; J 6:57 ; 7:28 ; 8:26 ; 10:28 ; 17:22 ; IPhld 11:1 al. —In a narrative told in the first pers. sg. it connects one member w. another J 1:31 , 33 , 34 . It oft. expresses a reciprocal relation and I, as I ejn ejmoi; mevnei kajgw; ejn aujtw`/ J 6:56 . meivnate ejn ejmoi; kajgw; ejn uJmi`n 15: 4. Cf. 10:1 5, 38 ; 14:20 ; also 2 Cor 12:20 ; Gal 6:14 .


There's no "j" in Greek.

If you were to go to the main page of the website, you will see a link to download the various fonts used to view such works, www.bible-library.org

Coptic Gangia.

I thought that there was another use for 'J', but the Beta Code Cheat Sheet I use shows just that one instance.

OTOH, looking at the displayed errors, I'd suggest that the problem is due to a code page mismatch somewhere.

HI there, the fonts read perfectly on my PC. Did you install the fonts from the site?

The fonts are required for the display of Greek/Hebrew. That means, the Greek/Hebrew is not unicode, but rendered in a legacy font. You would need to convert the fonts to unicode for an e-Sword module. And e-Sword can't render Greek or Hebrew in the dictionary entry window (even if it is in unicode).
