For an open and innovative digital publishing ecosystem in Europe
EDRLab is actively promoting in Europe the use of the EPUB 3 format, i.e. the industry standard for digital publications, suitable for content authoring, interchange, and distribution and based on technologies of the Open Web Platform. As full member of the W3C, EDRLab actively participates to the evolution of publishing standards : Web Publications for online usage and EPUB 4 for file interchange.
EDRLab is leader in the development of three active projects of the Readium Foundation: Readium Mobile iOS, Readium Mobile Android and Readium Desktop (Windows, MacOS and Linux). Each of these projects provides rock-solid, performant building blocks for navigating in EPUB publications, with full support of the EPUB 3 standard and the LCP non-proprietary DRM.
Support for people with print disabilities is a key part of our mission. We collaborate with European publishers and major inclusing organizations on the creation of a born-accessible ebook market. We also make sure that Readium projects take into account the assistive technologies used by visually-impaired users.
