OverDrive announced today that OverDrive Read now supports a broad range of enhanced titles based on EPUB3. The leading browser-based eBook platform now faithfully displays children’s picture books, textbooks using complex layout, and other enhanced titles produced using EPUB3, HTML5, media overlays (synchronized audio), and other open industry standards.
OverDrive Read technology also now offers increased sharing and discovering, by enabling readers to instantly view a sample of an eBook within a web page with the option to then purchase or find the title in a library. OverDrive’s embedded samples are viewed in a “ReadBox,” and easily shared through social media, links, blog posts, and other digital communication.
