You don't actually *need* Illustrator to use WarmReader.

What you need is a way to create suitable .bb  files.
A plug-in for Illustrator (called 'Marked Objects') is one way to
do this.

With a little bit of effort you can use any piece of software that
lets you estimate the coordinates of a point within a graphic image.
Indeed, it is sufficient to just estimate "by eye" and record
this information by hand in a file.

Having spent some money on Illustrator just makes this task
easier, and more Mac-like.

For an insight into the theory, and what is required,
or different ways to work, read the PDF preprint available here:
