No no, we haven’t been on vacation! Rather the opposite: we’ve been busy with a plethora of things Bookalope.

We’re sorry though, we won’t tell until we roll out our new website early next year, start integrating our completely overhauled AI, and… oh… oops 🤓 Good thing we didn’t blab out too many good news!

Happy holidays everybody!

This is the story of +Bookalope

In this blog for Digital Book World, we talk about how Bookalope came about and what motivated us to build our tools. If you’ve ever tried to design a proper ebook and print-ready book from a Word document, you’ll know what we are talking about. So come along with us on memory lane, and enjoy the read…

Want to spend more time creating and designing your book, and less time cleaning up and structuring the manuscript?

Our public beta is here! We have been busy building an extension for Adobe InDesign that integrates many of +Bookalope’s web services seamlessly into your publishing workflow.

Not only that, but we’re also making the complete source code of our InDesign extension available for free on Github: https://github.com/jenstroeger/Bookalope-CEP

A11Y is a project that aims to improve accessibility of web content for (vision) impaired readers. Its recommendations can also be applied to ebooks, and when done well will allow impaired readers to enjoy ebooks without problems.

Bookalope now follows the A11Y recommendations by default. That means that every EPUB3 ebook built with Bookalope is easily accessible for impaired readers. Done…

Bookalope is getting smarter about our automated document Import!

We are now using an artificial intelligence which learns from the visual styling and layout of well-designed books. Based on this knowledge, Bookalope learns to classify the semantic structure of new books during Import with growing reliability.

And for you the user this means that you spend even less time on tediousness, and more time on being creative with the content and design of your final book.

Great mention of Bookalope and one of its strong points in this article on automating Word document cleanup: “The work that Bookalope does is invaluable for finding the kinds of issues we are talking about here, and making it easier to apply semantic, accessible markup to your books earlier in the production process.”
