A comrade said I should look into .apk if I want to scan books. Anyone know what this is?
.apk is a file format that is used to store Android apps
For scanning books you could use CamScanner, Adobe Scan or Microsoft Lens
Do you wanna scan books from your phone or what?
I wanna scan books in any way I can, period.
I’m also hoping to convert the pictures to text for a PDF.
Yeah but did you specifically ask about using a phone to scan? The reason I am asking is because it sounds like you need some sort of OCR software. One such software is tesseract-ocr (the only one I know of that is free and open source) . Here is a list of 3rd party applications that leverage it to provide a frontend: https://tesseract-ocr.github.io/tessdoc/User-Projects-–-3rdParty.html
I don’t know which ones are good but maybe this will help.
