Do non-Kindle e-readers also have the dictionary feature?
« on: October 15, 2013, 02:24 PM »
I'm getting ready to publish an OOP book (adult nonfiction) as an ebook. I need to know if other readers such as Nook, and other platforms such as iBook, come with the feature that gets you to the definition of a word by either hovering on the word (as I can do with my c. 2010 keyboard Kindle) or by some other method.

I just noticed that I refer to this feature in the Introduction to this edition and, duh, I really need to check this out before I give the go-ahead to the book designer to finalize the file!
