When it comes to content and information flow, it becomes more efficient when content gets liberated from its physical packaging i.e. to blow up the traditional boundaries that have limited content publishing into books and magazines. With the help of ePUB, we overcome these limitations to deliver the content in a standard publishing format.
The new ePUB3 standard unveils the scope of ePUB in the current techno-trend with a move to HTML5- based content.
The current spec and key changes in ePUB3 include HTML 5 support, rich-media support and interactivity, layout enhancements, global languages support and accessibility improvements. This opens the doors to new markets for publishers, application developers, eReaders and tablet manufacturers.
We can now see all the features like video and audio embedding, metadata, linking, navigation, multimedia, font, scripting, text-to-speech, dynamic layouts, semantic markups, etc., in an ePUB. With the help of ePUB3, this also provides opportunities for application developers to create eBook readers for web and mobile platforms.
AEL Data is already involved in developing engaging interactive and multimedia-rich eBooks using these ePUB 3 standards.
