Silencing Footnotes in Scientific Books and Papers - RegEx Pattern
Hi, first of all thank you so much for this great app. This is propably the best and most useful app in the whole play store.
As I see from the FAQs it is a topic to silence or exchange the uninteresting parts (for listening) of scientific publications. I've tried to understand RegEx fully, but failed. The instruction website is good, but I would need more examples how to implement it in your app, to fully understand the key characters and so on. I hope you can help me with my questions:
I have 4 cases which I don't get to work myself:
1. Every sentence starting with a superscript number from 1 to 9999 (with or without space in between) (normaly at the bottom of most pages) should be exchanged
Example: "²Smith, The Book, 1973" or "² Smith, The Book, 1973, p. 12"
2. Every sentence containing "Vgl." or "vgl." should be exchanged
Example: "² Vgl. Smith, 1973" or "²Vgl. Smith, 1973"
3. Superscript Footnotes which are directly behind a "." from 1 to 9999 should be exchanged
Example: "...as shown in his puplication.²"
4. Every Text in "()" containing a year (1900 to 2050) should be exchanged
Example: "(Smith 1973)" or "(Smith, 1973, p. 12)"
Note: This one should be already working with your newest FAQ thread. I'll try that. Thanks.
Thanks in advance and all the best
PS: I have already added many speech edit rules for German and English scientific publications, if there is some interest I can upload my export file here. (rules for stuff like: p. = Page; S. = Seite; etc. = et cetera;...)
