You will recall from my previous post that I am not a supporter of third party software. Codex, however, is an exception to my rule. I have been using this software for well over two years, and so far, I have experience no problem with the program.

What is Codex?

Codex is an Accessible eBook conversion and DRM remover tool for Windows operating systems by James Scholes. From the introduction in the Read Me section on his website he describes Codex as follows:

Codex is a software application which aims to make the process of eBook conversion and DRM removal as easy, customisable and, of course, screen reader accessible as possible. It offers a simple interface as well as integration with Windows Explorer (and other third-party shells should you use one) and uses the excellent calibre eBook management software behind the scenes to make most of the magic happen.

One of the benefits of codex is the integration with the context menu which can be accessed by right clicking or by pressing the applications key. This means you do not have to launch the application to convert a file.

A further benefit of this software is, that it is completely free, with no trial period, advertisements or subscriptions.
