FAUSTO TOFFANO - Pensionato:
Sono un sostenitore di Biblos, e l'uso che ne faccio è principalmente quello di correggere i libri da me scansiti. Per questo scopo direi che è decisamente insostituibile, infatti ha al suo interno opzioni talmente avanzate che praticamente, se si impostano i parametri in modo appropriato la correzione avviene totalmente in modo automatico.
