A book that flips in both directions is impossible without javascript to my knowledge since what determines the direction is the spine attribute page-progression-direction, I have never heard of anything else that can change the direction of the page flip.

If you're talking about an auto flip pdf, I have never tried to do both direction flip before, I don't really want to nor do I see anyone else wanting that.

I also don't understand why you're confused about the progression direction, every book has a main language, if you have both Hebrew and English in a book then obviously one of them is the primary, e.g. dictionary English->Hebrew, main language is English so page progression direction should be ltr.

EGGZACKLY right. It can't. That's precisely my point.

Nope, wasn't talking about that, was discussing ePUBs only. And possibly mobis. In the "can't be done" category.

Yes, sorry, I should remember that not everyone here is actually living inside my head, and privy to my meaning, versus what I type. I meant...this person and others have wanted auto-flip, or worse, read-along. WITH auto-play, for BOTH languages, in BOTH directions, at the reader's option. You can see why this would make my poor, decrepit noggin hurt. Can I make a book auto-flip in one direction? You betcha. Can I make it play, sing, dance (sorta), and highight words in one direction? You betcha. (in iBooks, and to a lesser extent, in Nook-pubs. And, arguably, even in .mobi, except, it cannot be published via KDP).

BUT, can even I, along with my two ugly sisters, the cauldron, and some eye of newt and tongue of dog, make it flip in both directions, singing in English and Hebrew, highlighting left-to-right and then right-to-left, from one page to the next? Auto-flipping first in one direction, then the next? Hell, no, and y'know, I'm just too damn old for that s**t. I'm serious. I'm going to let you, Liz, Azardi, the Readium guys, Lisa, or one of the rest of the damn gang figure that crap out. When it's good to go, I think I'll just mooch it from YOU guys. :-)

I mean, Dammit, Jim, I'm a bookmaker, not a wizard.

I have a question, how can you make the ePub auto flip page every number of seconds?

It's a fixed-format thing in iBooks. You use it, generally (but not always) when you have a book that is reading aloud for children. You first embed the read-aloud controls (start, stop, start-stop), and then you define the page-turn style thusly:

Code:
<p ibooks:readaloud="startstop" ibooks:readaloud-turn-style="automatic">Automatic</p>
<p ibooks:readaloud="startstop" ibooks:readaloud-turn-style="manual">Manual</p>
I know, I know, really tricky stuff. {smile}. From the iBooks Asset Guide:

Quote:
You can set the timing for page turning in pages that do not have audio. iBooks has two default zoom levels
in each orientation: page and spread. When a reader zooms into a page, each page is focused independently
during navigation. When a reader zooms to a spread, the spread is treated as a single step during book
navigation.
1. If Turn Pages is set to Automatically, iBooks pauses reading for 3 seconds on any pages or spreads that
do not have any associated audio. After 3 seconds, reading continues, and the reader is taken to the next
page or spread.
2. If Turn Pages is set to Manually, iBooks takes the reader to pages or spreads with no audio, and the corner
of the page is immediately turned up, indicating to the reader that it is time for them to turn the page.
To override this behavior and skip the spread entirely, provide a <par> that corresponds to the skipped
spread, and define a duration of 0s. If you want a pause longer than 3 seconds, build that time into the
audio file.
Just become an iTunes Publisher, and you can pull down their Asset Guide. The tedious part is the CSS and the SMIL, really. The rest isn't hard, as they've oriented iBooks for precisely this type of use.

Did that answer your question? Truthfully, you need to read the info in the larger context of the rest of the Asset Guide, for it to be useful, IMHO.
