I am working on a project that started off as pure HTML. I have been experimenting with SVG, particularly SVG text. I am getting some very good results with SVG, better than the HTML.
Is it ok to use SVG text in a epub.
If it is, why isn't it used more.
What is the down side to using SVG.
Talking to me...
A down side is, when a word hyphenates it is not search able.
did you test screen reader software for reading aloud SVG Text in ePubs on several devices?
Maybe this is only possible with HTML text? Just a guess.
Good point, thank you.
It does look like you have to add extra id's for some read aloud. Support looks patchy.
