Wondering how enhanced eBooks are created?! Get a few major tips today
Publishers and designers are currently having a crucial time trying to move to the future generation of eBooks, the enhanced eBooks. These future generation books are attracting the interests of readers; they make reading such a result yielding and enjoyable experience. Allow me to refer to the new reading experience that is fast gaining momentum among readers as the ‘reading in reality experience’; this is because imaginations and doubts are eliminated by the use of many practical enhanced features.
If you are curious about being among the first bunch of writers to create an enhanced eBook, be in the lead to pick a few tips to start you off. You can become a pioneer of enhanced eBooks! A few tools that are required in setting the pace for this noble task of creating eBooks include; Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Book track, <PubML>, Inklewriter, and Apple iBook Authors in some cases.
The essence of having these tools are majorly embedded video clips, audio, and animations. If you are perhaps asking trying to figure out why the three, the three are what makes enhanced eBooks by bringing about an enhanced experience in the way raw content is presented.
What comes next after putting the tools together?
In creating an enhanced eBook, it is always best to work from some reference point. This means that coming up with a piece-work that will act as a guide in the different developmental stages is the first effort required. A piece-work gives a clear idea of how texts are going to be organised, the types of formats to be implemented, and which part of the print out will be embedded with videos or animations.
From the blueprint, eBook developers code the content starting with the simplest while tending to the most complex forms. Static media such as texts and placeholders for more complex media such as videos come first in place. One of the best tools currently in place for making static media is the HTML5 programming language.
Complex media such as videos fall next after their placeholders have been generated. The Adobe InDesign Suite is very useful when it comes to embedding such media. It cuts across all layouts; from the simple ones to those considered hectic.
To enhance the readers’ experience, sound cannot be left out. Sound can be in the form of music or narrators. There are some applications available for embedding sound in eBooks. The Soundtrack application can serve this purpose so well.
There are circumstances where user inputs are required to take the content to the next chapter. An example is the use of self-assessment quizzes at the end of each topic. Where such circumstances emerge, the Inklewriter application tools can assist in the development process.
After all the development stages are completed, the enhanced eBook is taken to quality assurers and testers. It is at this stage where the content is proofread and put through a rigorous test across different devices. On satisfying the set standards, the enhanced eBook is ready for use by readers!
