EPUB 3 On The iPad

MPS, a MacMillan company, has posted a video example of a book made for the iPad using EPUB 3. We’ve embedded the video above, so that you can see what it looks like.

The eBook has various multimedia elements including audio and video, animations and slide shows. It also includes complex and fixed layouts and print-replica layouts, structured, hyperlinked indexes, as well as embedded fonts, right-to-left text and page progression. There is also a read aloud track.

The MPS blog has more: “We’d love to get your feedback on the sample and hear your thoughts on EPUB 3 in general – does it meet your expectations, which features will be the most useful, what are your plans for EPUB 3. Post a comment below or join the conversation on the EPUB 3 and HTML5 LinkedIn group here.”
