Summaries

Short summary

Unable to navigate by specific page number, navigation is by chapter/section. Unable to create highlights/notes.

Long summary

Overall, reading experience is positive. Although the user is unable to create highlights or notes in the browser-based version, they can review, access and manage highlights or notes shared by others or ones they create in native version of Bookshelf. The ability to add and manage bookmarks is a nice feature. The display of the table of contents is easy to use and navigate. Selecting an element from the table of contents places the user at the beginning of that chapter/section of the book. There were some issues in the Advanced Math test book with the inability to navigate the equations by character and that the equation was not being displayed in the math viewer.
