Summaries

Short summary

MOA Not supported.
User control of text is better than required. Letter spacing can also be modified. Margins are adjustable.

Long summary

This is a really fine readers. Some clear issues exist with hard page numbers. Hence, the map from the physical book source cannot be navigated directly. Heading navigation is great. Bookmarks work well. Notes can only be managed by extending the text on bookmarks.

The user interface is large print, but probably not good for visual acuity worse than 20/100 (6/30). It is a fixed 20pt. (200%) or about. It cannot be enlarged from within the program, but must depend on OS magnification or a screen magnifier. This is especially significant in lists like bookmarks, searches and table of contents references.

Color access is complete. For those who cannot cope with a color picker program, there are themes. The custom color dialog box should be enlarged to fit full screen. It's too small.

Highlights, Notes, and Bookmarks

4/4
Add a Bookmark or Highlight Supported Select text with mouse to bookmark Click on TOC button (outline icon). Top control panel second from left. Select Bookmark Tab (little ribbon icon) Click Add button at bottom.
Review and navigate Bookmarks or Highlights Supported Click TOC button. Click Bookmark Tab Click on Bookmark Text
Add a note Supported Odd way. Just edit the bookmark and add more text. This does not word wrap. Thus very long notes will be truncated. The TOC/Bookmark/Search box enlarges to fit the full screen width. That means a lot of text can be added before truncation. Text is about 20pt. May need zoom.
Review and navigate Notes Supported Does have the truncation of long notes. But in edit mode it word wraps and can be copied to another program for limitless enlargement.
