Deciding on the format most suitable for the types of various possible uses of the eBook is most important to ensuring its effectiveness. It is considered by those who are better informed as an essential point to consider when it comes to electronic publishing styles.
The format eventually chosen after the relevant considerations have been made will determine the nature of the digital package in which it is distributed.
There are many new formats that are available and many more new ones being developed. Currently there are tools available to facilitate the repackaging of existing formats into other acceptable or customs designed formats for alternative use.
This is of course very useful when the decision is made to commit to one style early on in the designing phase of the eBook exercise.
Considering the compatibility of the target audience in accessing and browsing through the content of the eBook is important. If the target audience intended is unable to access the information posted on the eBook through the chosen format then the eBook would not be worth anything to them besides of course the more obvious element of frustration they would experience when trying to access the said information.
Creating ways to ease the installation and use for the intended target audience is also another important point to consider. Here too if the installation process is lengthy and tedious the definite existence of the user unfriendly aspect of the design would be off putting and frustrating.
Therefore it is necessary to look into the installation requirements so that one that is easy can be tailored to fit the accessibility of the eBook.
The supporting tools that maybe required in order for the special features to be viewed without any interruptions must also be well chosen. There is nothing more annoying for the user than to have these interruptions marring the general experience of the eBook browsing.
