We all obviously understand the primary advantages of digital books, which include: ease of information access (24/7), minimal space to store and archive data, easy retrieval of information through search and other associated features, more secure data storage than in a physical location, to name some. There are some associated challenges of going digital; the primary one being how copyright issues are handled especially when digital copies can be easily duplicated and shared. Digital content providers are attempting to alleviate this situation by introducing digital rights management (DRM) to control and promote authorized access to information. While content providers/publishing firms are attempting to mitigate such challenges globally, no one is really denying or questioning the benefits of "going digital."
In our experience as quality assurance (QA) specialists who have been testing digital content for over seven years, we from QA InfoTech herein talk about some of our core QA approaches in ensuring such digital content is ready for global consumption and what happens behind the scenes during such a digitization process.
