The EZReader File Editor allows you to create and edit text files, called Personal files. A library of example Personal files is installed with EZReader - including recipes for two of the best desserts ever!

A unique approach is used to naming and saving files, one which eliminates the need for a Save-As dialog.

A second library of files called System files is also installed. Those files can be edited but System files may not be created or deleted.

The File Editor can also read files to you. You can control the volume as well as the reading speed.

The File Editor allows the user to adjust colors, fonts, text size, character spacing and more to best fit the user's vision constraints.

Users can add books of their own to the Personal files. The files must be text files. See the Help section on Import. Library for more details.
