Two Essential Features for Digital Picture Books (a note to developers from your readers)

Two Essential Features for Digital Picture Books (a note to developers from your readers) | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

Just this week, several Oceanhouse Media titles, from their popular Dr. Seuss collection, including Green Eggs and Ham, have added recordable narration and additional settings that include page guides for easier navigation.

 

This is an exceptional step and not an easy programming effort on the part of a major developer of book apps. It is also a change I am deeply grateful for as a parent, educator and reviewer of digital children’s books. I look forward to seeing more popular titles include these types of updates. They are free for anyone who has previously purchased the book apps, but not inexpensive on the part of the developer, so a thank you is in order.

 

Other major developers, like Auryn Apps, iStorytime and even Disney Digital Books, should also be commended for having so many flexible settings for audio and navigation. These settings are sometimes an afterthought in the process of creating a book app, but they shouldn’t be … the story is truly at the center of the process, but an app’s settings in the book category can make or break a great read ...

Dr. Seuss iPad Storybooks Add Record & Share Feature

Dr. Seuss iPad Storybooks Add Record & Share Feature | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

The Dr. Seuss iPad storybooks published by Oceanhouse Media have been among my favorite family book titles on the iPad for a long while. This week Oceanhouse have announced that they’ve added a new ‘Record & Share’ feature to a handful of their Dr. Seuss storybook titles (or omBooks as they call them) for iPad.

This new feature allows you to record your own voice – or let your child record theirs – and then share the recording with family and friends via email. You can use your own recordings to enjoy the books in Read to Me mode.

Hi Sue, I really like your suggestion! For there to be a community of readers, there necessarily has to be a community of writers. It could be anything from fiction to non-fiction. Would be really great!
