Free ~ Dante Alighieri - Audio eBook EPUB3 of the Divine Comedy, read by Lino Pertile

Dear all,

I would like to share a free audio eBook of Dante's Comedy (aka Divine Comedy), read by Prof. Lino Pertile (Harvard University) and with the commentary of Isidoro Del Lungo, produced as a demo project by my startup company Smuuks.

You can download the three eBooks (one from each part: Hell, Purgatory and Heaven) from: http://www.smuuks.it/index.php/en/pr...f-lino-pertile

The eBook is released for free (no registration required) and under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 3.0 license.

The eBook is available in EPUB 3 format, and it contains Media Overlays support (aka "text highlighting in sync with audio"). There is a video of this feature on the project page, along with some screenshots.

Some stats: 100 chapters for a total of 14233 verses, 12+ hours of audio, 14333 SMIL fragments, 300+ MB size.

Comments, suggestions and criticism are all welcome: just post your message in this thread!

Well, Italian has the great advantage of having a 1:1 correspondance between written signs and spoken sounds. So, one can just enjoy the beautiful reading of Prof. Lino Pertile.

We are working on a bi-lingual (ITA/ENG) version and, if our sponsors continue supporting us, we will still include the audio recordings.
