This was my first year at TOC Frankfurt and the Frankfurt Book Fair, and I had a fantastic, sleep-challenged time. O’Reilly Media was kind enough to invite me to speak at TOC about the current work on EPUB3 as it relates to HTML5 and other technologies.
Slides from EPUB Evolutions are posted but it may be more helpful to hear the full presentation, which I’ve re-recorded.
Topics covered in the talk include:
- The current state of the EPUB3 working groups and overall schedule.
- Enhancements to worldwide language support, including vertical text.
- Native multimedia and HTML5 video/audio.
- Interactivity, and the UI and accessibility challenges it imposes.
- Improved styling and layout via CSS3 and media-query.
