From Books to eBooks
Book to eBook conversion is on the rise. As more and more people are reading electronic books,there is a significant need for publishers and authors to convert physical books to digital formats.
Book to eBook Conversion Process
The process for converting books to eBooks first requires the printed books –whether they are softcover or hardcover –to be turned into electronic files. This is usually done by using a scanning or OCR process.
If the book covers and spines are removed before scanning or OCR,the process is much faster,less labor intensive and less expensive;however,the original book is destroyed. Alternatively,books can also be scanned without destroying the original manuscript.
Depending on the book,the book to eBook conversion process may require significant styling changes. Most publishers and authors want the final eBooks to have the same formatting as the original physical versions. A skilled eBook conversion company can help with this.
Digital eBooks must be laid out so they read well on eReaders. Different readers offer different features,and individual users may adjust the font size and other aspects of their reading experience. In addition,there is a wide variety of screen sizes that the same ebook may be read on – ranging from a smartphone to a portable eReader to a desktop monitor screen. All of these factors must be taken into account during the book to eBook conversion process.
eBooks offer the ability to include many enhanced,multi-media features that are not available in printed books. For example,audio,video and advanced interactive elements can be added to digital publications to heighten the reader’s experience. It is standard to include accessibility features as well.
Advanced technical and design skills may be required to implement highly-technical enhancements. The result is worth it,though! It can turn into an ordinary eBook into an incredible interactive sight and sound experience.
Book to eBook Conversion Formats
Different readers are made to work with different file formats. Therefore,to reach the full reading audience,books have to converted into multiple eBook formats,including ePub,AZW (Kindle),MOBI and others.
