Answers found here! In iOS 7, Apple gave the iPhone the most radical makeover in its history. The new software is powerful, sleek, and a perfect companion to the iPhone 5s and 5c—but it’s wildly different. Fortunately, David Pogue is back with an expanded edition of his witty, full-color guide: the world’s most popular iPhone book. The important stuff you need to know: The iPhone 5s. This book unearths all the secrets of the newest iPhone—faster chip,dual-color flash, fingerprint scanner, and more—and its colorful companion, the 5c. The iOS 7 software. Older iPhones gain Control Center, AirDrop, iTunes Radio, free Internet phone calls, and about 197 more new features. This book covers it all. The apps. That catalog of 1,000,000 add-on programs makes the iPhone’s phone features almost secondary. Now you’ll know how to find, manage, and exploit those apps. The iPhone may be the world’s coolest computer, but it’s still a computer, with all of a computer’s complexities. iPhone: The Missing Manual is a funny, gorgeously illustrated guide to the tips, shortcuts, and workarounds that will turn you, too, into an iPhone addict.

Creating a Children s SYNAHIT Epub SYNAHIT Synchronized Narration and Highlighted Text

Creating a Children s SYNAHIT Epub   SYNAHIT  Synchronized Narration and Highlighted Text

If you want to become a self publisher of children’s epubs with media overlay (MO) capabilities you should read this ebook. Epub with media overlay means the ebook is capable of narrate the text and simultaneously highlight the narrated text. It is recommended the reader to have some basic knowledge about computers word processing (Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, OpenOffice Text Document, etc). As an epub is very similar to a webpage, it is very helpful to have some knowledge about XHTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. However, it is not necessary since the ebook covers the basics about them. The ebook covers just those aspects of XHTML and CSS3 that are required to create the epub “Little Red Riding Hood Sample.epub” that will be the final result after reading the ebook. You have to be willing to learn several open source applications that will help you to create the sample epub. You have to be willing to learn SIGIL, the open source epub editor that will be used to create the sample epub. You need to learn some basics about audio creation and editing, using the open source application AUDACITY. To create the MO files, you need to learn how to use SMIL ASSIST, an open source program that will be used to create the MO files. Throughout the whole ebook I would reference the MO files as the soul of the main added value of the ebook: SYnchronized NArration and HIghlighted Text (SYNAHIT). I want to coin this name, since the popular Read Aloud term referring to the MO capabilities, often is mistaken with the fact someone may want to read aloud the book. Just Google “Read Aloud” ebooks and you’ll find many different interpretations. Following the step by step instructions in chapters 4, 6, and 7, you’ll learn to import text, images, and MO files as you build the epub “Little Red Riding Hood Sample.epub”. All the other chapters are necessary to understand the EPUB 3 specification, epub validation, and epub online publishing.

Often referred to as "children's ebooks," "picture ebooks," "photo books," and similar monikers, fixed-layout ebooks are visually-rich layouts that offer much more than standard EPUB and KF8 format ebooks for iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Kindle Fire, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and more. Fixed-layout ebooks behave very much like PDFs or even digital magazines, displaying the design, typography, and page geometry exactly as designed on all devices. This specialty type of ebook tends to be very reliant on imagery, either or both as inline graphics or page background images, and sometimes even as spread-spanning images. They support advanced typographic control and pixel-precise layout, and they can contain read-a-long, on-demand, or ambient audio. Limited interactivity may also be achieved through JavaScript integration. Objects can be placed anywhere on the page, aligned relative to one another, with absolute precision, and type control goes far beyond standard, flowable EPUB in the forms of support for any font (with embedding), accurate line wrapping, hyphenation, leading control, tracking (letter spacing), and even multiple columns. Fixed-layout EPUBs may have real sidebars, note or tip boxes, and live text image captions. And, like flowable EPUBs, all the text—even in such special features—is searchable, live text. All of these features make fixed-layout ebooks ideal for such projects as children’s books, cookbooks, travel journals, photography and design books, game guides, and any other project where page presentation is important to reader experience and sales. ePublishing with InDesign: Creating Fixed-Layout eBooks will teach you: Understanding Fixed-Layout eBooks Planning a Fixed-Layout eBook Creating Fixed-Layout in InDesign Adapting the HTML Editing the CSS Adding Advanced Features Creating Read Aloud Narration Creating Fixed-Layout for Kindle Converting Fixed-Layout for Nook Creating Fixed-Layout for Sony Reader Creating Fixed-Layout for Kobo Other Fixed-Layout Creation Tools Creating Fixed-Layout eBooks by Pariah S.

Despite the strength of the text, it is the color photos that steal the show, highlighting [the] planet’s exotic beauty in much the same way that black-and-white photography accented the moon's starkness.

A breathtaking look at the most beautiful of all the planets with its magnificent rings and moons. From School Library Journal: "An introduction to the planet and its major satellites. Despite the strength of the text, it is the color photos that steal the show, highlighting [the] planet’s exotic beauty in much the same way that black-and-white photography accented the moon's starkness. In all, a delightful coupling of sound exposition with dazzling illustrations.” Newly Updated 2012.

Two very different people. One scandalous proposition. Endless possibilities... *** My legs refuse to move. And my arms. And, quite possibly my heart, as well. Hell, even my eyes can’t bring themselves to blink, completely bulged and glassy, as if they’re large marbles sitting in my face. My spine turns to ice, feeling insanely rigid and stiff I think I just might snap right in half if I even breathe too hard. Maybe it’s a good thing my lungs just decided to quit on me, too, then. My brain is having serious trouble processing the words in front of me. My mouth goes incredibly dry, and I can’t even bring myself to swallow to relieve the parched sensation. I just stand there for several seconds—or maybe it’s several minutes, I don’t know—unable to look away from the piece of paper. Reserved for sub. Reserved. For. Sub. R.e.s.e.r.v.e.d. f.o.r. s.u.b. Every single letter in those three unsettling, heart-stopping words loop around in my head over and over again until that’s all I can see. Everything else fades away, and I experience the most chilling, sobering moment of clarity I’ve ever had. This is for real. Like, this is really, really happening. *** Feast your eyeballs and fall absolutely head over heels in love with Eme Strife's edgy, sizzling, intriguing, incredibly sexy, and captivating unconventional romance story. Each installment will keep you strapped to the very edge of your seat and constantly guessing on one hell of an emotional roller-coaster. You'll never think of the phrase, "Doctor-Patient Confidentiality” in the same way ever again once you read this! This story unfolds over several volumes. IT IS NOT A STANDALONE. This is the ninth book. Rated 18+ This series contains mature and adult content (nudity, graphic sex, and strong language). Because of its explicit nature, it is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.
