If you are familiar with electronic publishing then you know that it includes the digital publication of electronic articles and eBooks as well as the extension of catalogues and digital libraries.
Now you are probably wondering what digital publishing has do transferring a PDF to HTML5. But before I go into that let me tell you about my past experience with uploading a PDF file onto my iPad.
PDF to HTML5 problems – can anyone say problems?
If you are familiar with an iPad then you know that you need an app for just about everything. So to load a PDF to my iPad I needed an app. I used the recommended iBooks app but I was still having problems with the PDF file and could not view it. What I discovered was that iBooks 3.2 or later requires at least the iOS 7 version or later on my iPad. All I wanted was to upload a PDF file. I was starting to think that maybe I should transfer the PDF to HTML5 because I did not have iOS 7 installed.
Luckily I discovered that I needed to change the preferences in the main menu and make sure that Books was selected. So I didn’t need to upgrade to iOS 7 after all. But this was only after hours of researching online to find a solution. Although I finally resolved the issue I still needed to sync the devices. If you are not familiar with iPad, you have to sync all devices almost every time you download something. Unfortunately, I still needed the iPad PDF to HTML5. So my work was still not finished. However, I had already spent a lot of time just trying to view my PDF file.
The solution – PDF to HTML5, and so much more!
Now back to the subject of uploading file and digital publishing on yumpu.com. After the needless hours of frustration trying to view a PDF file on my iPad I decided that there had to be an easier way. So I did a little research and soon discovered yumpu.com.
