Volunteer needed to test epubs on a reading device

Postby BKh » Wed Feb 01, 2012 5:54 pm

I've got a couple of e-books in the epub format almost ready to go. I'm trying to find someone who has a dedicated e-pub reading device such as a Nook, Kobo, or Sony Reader to test them and tell me if the fonts work correctly.

I don't need the books to be proofread, simply checked for the proper Pali font. Please send me a pm if you are interested and I'll get you the books.

Best wishes,
BKh

I have a Sony PRS-600 so I can do that.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Thanks Ytrog! :clap:

Any one out there with a Nook or Kobo want to give them a try?

Thanks for the offer. I have actually already been able to test them on a Kindle. But I don't have access to an epub based device. They tested out fine on a Sony Reader.

As they are ready I will add them to this thread so you can keep an eye out there.
