Simplified eBook and Audiobook Experience

Feature Description

The reader functionality provides an easier eBook/audiobook experience for students and teachers to drive more usage of your Follett Digital content. All your existing Follett eBook and audiobook content opens automatically in the reader. There is nothing to install.

When your patrons use the Destiny Discover app for iOS, they will automatically be directed to the new reader experience. The first time a user opens a Follett eBook or audiobook, a screenshot with callouts introduces them to new functionality and user interface.

Highlights of the new reader include the following:

  • Automatic sizing for optimal reading experience – there is no longer a need for pinching and zooming to resize an eBook when it opens
  • Simplified functions and user interface for note taking, highlighting and searching within the eBook
  • Support for offline access on Chromebooks – leverages the most popular 1:1 device in K-12 schools
  • Easier process to download and read offline eBooks – utilizes browser storage (no special app required)
  • Export notes functionality – export notes to Google or Microsoft cloud docs
  • Google search capability (select a word, and perform a Google search it)
  • Faster and easier-to-use Destiny Discover experience on devices (same performance as desktop)

Additional resources to support you and your patrons are available in Follett Community and also from Help when the user has opened an eBook or audiobook.
