Introduction to reading Hebrew documents

 
   

In order to read Hebrew document files, you will need:
Hebrew+ or Hebrew Lite enabled on your Palm organizer,
and a document (Doc) reader for your Palm organizer.

It is recommended that you use an application called "TealDoc" from a company called TealPoint. TealDoc is a document reader that supports link buttons which allow jumping to another spot in the document (Doc), or even in another Doc file. These features are used in the Birkat HaMazon and in the Megillot.

Instructions on downloading documents

 
   

1 Click the file you want to download to your computer. When asked to open or save the file, choose Save. Save the file to your hard drive and remember the filename and location. A zip file is a compressed file which contains several files within it.

2 You'll need WinZip (or a similar program) to extract the files out of the "zip" file. (If you are using a MacIntosh computer, use StuffIt). If prompted to overwrite files, say "Yes". Remember the location of the extracted files.

3 Using the Palm Install Tool (that is provided as part of the Palm desktop software), install the file(s) that end with ".pdb" or ".prc" on your computer.

4 Perform a HotSync in order to transfer the file(s) to your organizer.

Instructions on using TealDoc

 
 

 

1 On your Palm organizer, tap the "TealDoc" icon.
Now you will see the list of documents.

2 Tap the document you want to open.

3 If you have not registered TealDoc, you will get a "nag screen" to register TealDoc (this is from TealPoint not us).

Just tap the screen and continue on.

4 Now you see the document.

Note: Sometimes when you open a document for the first time, you will see the file flashing for a few seconds, it is initializing the bookmarks.

5 On the bottom of the Palm organizer are four buttons with the scroll button in the middle. Use the scroll buttons to scroll down (and up) the document.

Some texts use bookmarks, tap the rightmost icon to see the bookmarks.

Parashot & Haftorot

 
   

Each Parsha is in its own zip file. The zip file contains the Parsha, Haftora and a readme.txt file.

See instructions on how to download and use these documents.

After you hotsynched the Parsha and Haftora files to your organizer. tap the TealDoc icon on your organizer. Make sure you are in the "All" category. You will see a list displayed, with "Parshat Hashavua" (in Hebrew) and "Haftora" (in Hebrew).

The last parsha or haftora file you install and hotsync to the organizer, becomes the one labeled "Parshat Hashavua" (in Hebrew) or "Haftora" (in Hebrew). The ".pdb"(or .prc) file with the parsha's or haftora's name will install over any existing parsha or haftora. If you want to have more than one parsha or haftora on your organizer, you must rename the document in the Doc Reader. In TealDoc, choose the Rename option and change the title from "Parshat Hashavua" to the real Parsha's name (for example "Naso"). Now you can download another Parsha, and the original one will not be overwritten.

Q: I hotsynced several parashot to my organizer. In my Doc Reader all I see is one entry called "Parshat Hashavua" (in Hebrew) with one parsha. Where are the other parashot?
A: The last Parsha you install and hotsync to the organizer, becomes the one labeled "Parshat Hashavua". The ".pdb" file with the Parsha's name will install over any existing parsha. If you want to have more than one Parsha on your organizer, you must rename the document in the Doc Reader. In TealDoc, choose the Rename option and change the title from "Parshat Hashavua" to the real Parsha's name.(e.g., "Naso"). Now you can download another Parsha, and the original one will not be overwritten.

Q: Why is my Hebrew text being displayed left justified in my Doc Reader?
A: Not all Doc Readers support right justification.
We recommend that you use TealDoc. As it justifies the text and displays the screen based on the first line on the screen. If the text is all in Hebrew on the screen, then it will automatically be right justified. If you have a mix of English and Hebrew, the justification is whatever the first line on the screen is. If you scroll down, and only Hebrew is displayed, then the text will be right justified.
If you had checked the "Right Justify" checkbox, in the Preferences section of TealDoc, you do not need to do this anymore if you are using Hebrew version 3.0 or higher.

Q: What are bookmarks in a Doc Reader?
A: If you are using TealDoc, after you open a document, in the bottom right hand corner is an icon (arrow or rectangle). Tap that icon. A list box appears with the bookmarks that were created for this document. Tap on an entry, and the document will be placed at that bookmark. In Parshat Hashavua, the Aliyot, "Stumot" and "Petuchot" are bookmarked. Other files have the beginning of the "perakim" bookmarked.

Q: How come I do not see the Parshat Hashavua in the Application (App) Launcher on my organizer?
A: The Parshat Hashavua is not an application, it is a document that is displayed in a list within a doc reader application. If you have TealDoc on your organizer, tap the TealDoc icon from the App Launcher. You will see Parshat Hashavua (displayed in Hebrew) in the document list.
