Question regarding OCR for reading Google online book previews

This is regarding the OCR dimension of this reader. Google has book previews available online. My question is about the ability of this program to utilize OCR to read aloud these book pages. The problem is that Google books will not allow highlighting of the specific text pages in order to cut and paste, so the text to speech program can read. Can you advise if this will be possible when my intention is to have the text to speech read these book previews provided by Google?

I checked the official website and these are the supported methods of reading for MWS Reader:

  • Text copied to the Clipboard (Shortcut: [CTRL] + [C])
  • Documents (Microsoft Office, Acrobat Reader,, LibreOffice, etc.)
  • Emails (Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, IncrediMail, etc.)
  • Web pages (Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome, etc.)
  • Text from eBooks, images, scanned documents and protected PDF files

As long as it supports a web page, and Google books are offered through a page, then it means you should be able to read the online e-books provided by Google.

Check the official website for additional information:
