Test book used: Fundamental Accessibility Tests: Basic Functionality, version 1.0.0

Summary

Overall good reading experience. Selecting to navigate from the TOC, search results, by page number or by bookmark places the user on the desired location in the book. There are some issues when navigating using internal hyperlinks or by Previous/Next buttons requiring the user having to interact with the book reader frame. Due to browser environment, user is unable to create highlights/notes but able to review/access highlights/notes already created. It would be a nice feature if the user could add a bookmark at a specific line of text in the book rather than just at the beginning of a chapter.
