Packed full of features:

  • Our online and offline readers now have very similar features and feel.

  • Rich Note annotations are now stylus and Apple Pen compatible.

  • New Thumbnail view of books to allow visual navigation.

  • Automatically synchronise Rich Notes between offline and online.

  • Marquee Zoom allows fast zoom to a selected diagram/image/table/text enabled for smartboards and tablets.

  • Rich Notes are now improved by adding a free-hand drawing tool, sticky notes, choice of colour highlighting, and embedding media and YouTube links within notes.

  • And let's not forget the immersive reader.

Immersive Reader

The Immersive Reader allows reading selected text aloud and in any language.

It's as simple as:

  • In view mode highlight the text you want to read aloud and/or translated.

  • Press the launch immersive reader button, a pop-up opens with text, press play to hear the text aloud.

  • For translation select the reading preference logo πŸ“–, then choose language and select by word or document. Read or play audio translation.
