|Python Gutenberg E-text Project|
The PyGE Project aims to provide free cross-platform desktop applications that can help in making the extensive and growing collection of classical literary works from Project Gutenberg more accessible to the typical computer user.
PyGE applications are designed with simple, easy-to-use graphical interfaces. They are targeted for performing a small but essential set of functions related to acquiring and viewing e-texts from Project Gutenberg. The suite of PyGE applications currently includes:
PyGE software is currently distributed in two formats: text source files for all supported platforms, and binary executables for machines running versions of Linux and Microsoft Windows.
The requirements for running PyGE software from a source distribution are the same on all platforms. The user must first ensure there are working installations of the following software:
Binary executable versions of PyGE software for Windows require a working installation of Microsoft Windows 98 or later.
Binary executable versions for Linux require that GTK run-time libraries be properly installed. Users of the Gnome desktop meet this requirement. Users of the KDE desktop may have to verify that libraries have also been installed for running GTK-based applications.
The PyGERS application supports text-to-speech functions on systems with supported speech synthesis software installed. The following speech synthesis components are currently supported.
