webscrap text from kindle using R


#1

Will i be able to webscrap kindle version of text using R? I am half way through my research and the publishers are not helping me access the source file.


Warning message: package ‘dplyer’ is not available (for R version 3.5.1)

For kindle I don't know but if you manage to get it into pdf version there are some tool like the tessaract package - a powerful OCR!
Or maybe to epub then use pandoc to convert from epub. I think it is possible. :thinking:

Kindle's web cloud interface may provide you an accessible way to scape highlights, at a minimum through cut-and-paste.
