Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding audio and video in post-production, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- You may have heard the term, "Enhanced" EPUB used.…I think this is the term people just referring to EPUB 3.…Essentially, it means it's a reflowable EPUB typically…that has embedded media in addition to the text…and images that are most commonly audio and video.…Part of the problem with this, as with fixed…layout EPUB, is device support.…The widest support, far and away,…is with Apple's iBookstore.…
Most of the tools for generating those things can…be found on Apple devices and software…not available for Windows always.…2nd generation Kindle Fire Devices do support some of…these files, but reportedly only with publishers with…whom they have a direct relationship.…It's a similar story for Barnes & Noble, whose Nook Tablet,…that's the HD and the HD Plus,…also apparently supports some of these media.…
Word does allow you to insert media into Word…documents but it is somewhat flaky at best.…It isn't intended for an arsenal of workflow,…and quite often, it just doesn't work at all.…We're not even touching here on video formats.…
