File Format

File Format

What file format does the MackinVIA™ Reader use? Mackin has developed a proprietary file format. We take eBook files from the publisher and put them through a process to convert them into the MackinVIA™ format.

ePub Format

Does the MackinVIA™ Reader support ePub? Only Mackin’s proprietary format is supported. Any file provided to us must first be converted. We are working to add functionality similar to ePub such as reflowable content, resizable text and customizable fonts.

Mackin-Hosted Digital Resources

Why do some resources open in programs with different features? All digital resources hosted by Mackin will open in the MackinVIA™ Reader. Some resources are hosted by other publishers, which will account for the differences in appearance and features.
