One of the weakest aspects of Fixed Layout EPUB is the lack of quality reader apps. I wrote about it a while back: https://www.boblevine.us/the-fixed-layout-epub-missing-piece-reliable-readers-for-windows-and-androi...

Well, I'm happy to say that I've just downloaded the latest latest Windows Insider build of Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge does a fabulous job with a very intricate Fixed Layout EPUB. All fonts, images, animations, video and audio are working wonderfully.

I expect this to be released in September or October.

This still causes issues today. The release worked great for a while and then seemed to just simply stop... If you have anything more modern now it would be great to share

Thorium Reader. Works great with fixed layout interactive ebooks. It plays the animations, state objects, sounds, and so on. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel!
