Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Beyond EPUB, to Kindle, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- So, in the last movie, we learned what an EPUB is…and we established that it is based…on a free and open standard…from the International Digital Publishing Forum.…And it's designed so that any reading system…or device can display that content…and allow the reader to adjust that content…for their own comfort.…Now, I am talking here, just to be clear,…about the re-flowable content kind of thing,…like a novel, that sort of thing, rather…than fixed layout, which is a kind of different ballgame…really, and also not available on every platform just yet.…
So, Kindle have a variation on that standard…that contains some Digital Rights Management software…inside of it that prevents it from being read…on reading devices or through software other than their own.…Now there are some packages that can open them…and display them on your Desktop and convert them.…And Amazon do produce software, actually,…that allows them to be read on other devices…but if your preferred reader was something…so like iBooks on a Mac or Adobe Digital Editions…
