Summaries

Short summary

Able to open, navigate and read the EPUB with minimal issues. Unable to navigate by page number, create highlights/notes and create bookmark on specific text.

Long summary

Overall, excellent experience opening, navigating and reading the EPUB. Heading hierarchy is recognized, alt text is read correctly table mark-up is accessible. Providing a more descriptive label for the sidebar menu and enabling navigation by page number would be welcome improvements. Due to browser-based nater of reading system, known challenges with creating text-specific bookmarks and highlights/notes is recognized. However, the focus management issue with the internal links is concerning.
