Where are reading positions saved in the filesystem?

Hi, I am a long time paid user and really like the app. I am trying to sync positions across my different ebook readers across devices including phone/PC using a script. Where are reading positions located?

    They are saved in Android system maintained SQLite database, which can be accessed only by the app itself. Android permissions system does not let other apps or scripts access it, unless you would root your device and run under root account...
     
    Maybe you could use @Voice Bookmarks feature instead, but you would need to bookmark current position first (long-press a word in text, when the "reference toolbar" appears, press the bookmark icon). You could then use the "Export selected" function on the menu of @Voice Bookmarks screen, or read the .bmk files in .config directory under @Voice default folder location. To find what is that default folder, open the Settings screen in @Voice and press "@Voice folder location", look at the top of screen.

    Thanks for the feedback here. I'm going to try to go with accessing the sqlite db, as my device is rooted, and this would allow for seemless syncing without manual intervention, but will probably be a longer term project when I have time.
