    Could I get someone to help me? It will just take literally under a minute. My ipad is broken and I need to see if my ebup (ebook) is displaying an audio file correctly on the first page. You can use any apple device that has the ibook ereader app installed. On the title page of the book, you should see the text 'Jane Eyre Audiobook' and then see a little audio player that plays the audiobook file. Is it showing up and playing is all I need to know? I would greatly appreciate it. The 1 MB file is found at the link below.

    There is no audio file included in the epub when I look at it.. Nice idea to include the audio within the epub. I am going to try it. Thanks The 1st photo is too small. When it is blown up to fit the page, it is very pixilated. You can make a larger one and save at lower quality. I will check to see if the audio is downloading and just can not be played by Stanza. I see the numbers 1 -- 11 but no other pictures are displayed after the first. I paged through the whole story. The pictures were downloaded. The audio does not appear to have been downloaded. I have a complete list of all the files, including the pictures. No Audio.

    Thanks so much for the response. I should mention that in order for the audio to work, I have heard that you must use an apple device with the free ibook app installed which is a multimedia ereader created by apple. Maybe you could do that and try again. Let me know so we can figure out a solution together.

    Okay so I think I figure it out. Maybe ;) I didn't actually have the audio file in there. I had it as a file that had to be downloaded. Try now and see if the audio file will play right from within the ebook. fileswap.com/dl/hRvmpb7/Jane_Eyre-2.epub.html

    Cannot Play Audio File

    You need to come up with a way to test this yourself. After testing this for you several times with no progress, I'm finished....
