I just received this exciting news from SBPRA:
ePubco.com Debuts Their New Read-Aloud ePub
ePubco.com announces that it will release its first Read-Aloud ePub this month to the Apple iBook Store. The Read-Aloud ePub has a fixed page layout that looks like a book and uses a clickable button to start reading the text on any given page.
The Read-Aloud ePub is designed to work on the Apple iPad and is perfect for Children’s picture books. It allows children to follow along while a realistic voice-over reads to them, making this the perfect learning tool to aid in reading development for young children. Additionally, children’s books formatted in this manner make for great ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) material abroad. As with any iPod/iPad player, you can easily add a pair of headphones for following along while in the doctor’s waiting room, airplane, road trip or other quiet places.
This first release is Sherrill Cannon’s Peter and the Whimper-Whineys. For more information on how you can get your book converted to a Read-Aloud ePub and have it uploaded to Apple’s iBook Store, contact Jeannie@ePubco.com.
