Also New in EasyReader 2.13
In addition to the inclusion of Calibre Audio, the 2.13 update includes a host of improvements for EasyReader for iOS, including:
- New for iOS - Support for Dynamic Fonts in iOS. iPads and iPhones include an accessibility option called ‘Dynamic Fonts’. This setting allows for a larger font size to be used on the device home screen and menus. This makes text clearer for people with visual impairments. Now in EasyReader 2.13 - if Dynamic Fonts have been enabled - the larger font size is now applied within the EasyReader user interface as well.
- New for Android - Significant improvements to the playback of text and audio books. These improvements enable users to enjoy listening to titles for long periods at a time without the playback pausing.
- New - Norwegian language update. EasyReader 2.13 now includes improvements for the Norwegian translation.
- Fix - Improvements to book cover images. Improvements have been made to prevent the book cover images from flickering when viewed in a list of titles.
- Plus - Additional fixes and improvements.
