OpenReader

An earlier XML-based text format from the OpenReader Consortium (www.openreader.org). Using components from the Open eBook specification, OpenReader was designed for e-books, articles, documents, news and text-based publications that included graphics. Digital rights management was also supported. Although Osoft offered OpenReader products, it was not enough to gain critical mass. See IDPF, EPUB and e-book.




An E-Book Reader With Note Sharing
In 2006, Osoft, Inc. launched its OpenReader-based Thout Reader in beta, later renaming it dotReader. The software allowed notes to be distributed from professors to students as well as from any reader of the e-book to every other via Osoft servers.
