Webby Books (a.k.a. web e-books) provide an innovative alternative to the somewhat stale format of legal casebooks. While the traditional law publishers’ idea of an e-book is often little more than a glorified PDF, Webby Books embrace modern technology and the internet by developing casebooks as interactive websites.
Webby Books are responsive, and so adjust in both appearance and functionality according to the size of the reader’s browser window. They can be read as easily on a ’phone or tablet as on a laptop or desktop PC or Mac.
To provide an optimum reading experience over longer periods, harsh contrasts between font and background colors have been avoided. In fact, the color scheme has been chosen to reduce eye-strain and to minimize any problems experienced by those with dyslexia.
The font has also been carefully chosen for comfortable reading, while those with dyslexia can install special fonts for an even better experience.
Webby Books are fully accessible and compatible with screen-readers.
