Kindle Textbook Creator

Kindle Textbook Creator helps you create and publish educational material for Kindle devices and reading apps. When you download Kindle Textbook Creator, it helps you convert PDFs of textbooks, course notes, study guides, reference material, and other educational content that includes complex visual information like charts, graphs, and equations. The app helps you format and preview your files so they're readable on Kindle devices and reading apps.

Kindle Textbook Creator also helps you create interactive content including audio, video, hyperlinks, and image popups. It allows you to add audio files with inline playback that doesn’t obscure book text, and invisible "Play" buttons that let users touch images to hear audio. Interactive features such as audio, video, hyperlinks, and image pop-ups are only available when the books are read on Fire tablets from the third generation onwards, or in the Kindle for Android reading app on Android phones and tablets. Kindle Textbook Creator hyperlinks are not supported on iOS devices. 

Starting with a PDF file of your textbook, you'll follow the steps in the Kindle Textbook Creator User Guide to convert your book for publishing to Kindle. This tool is available in these languages, and allows you to publish books in these languages:

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Dutch

Note: If you use the downloadable previewer, Kindle Previewer 2.94, to preview your book before publishing, the audio and video files will not display in that tool. Please use the preview function within Kindle Textbook Creator instead for the most accurate preview of interactive content in your book. Or, you can download the beta version of Kindle Previewer 3 (Beta).

Kindle Previewer 2.94 does not support textbooks created with Kindle Textbook Creator.

If you are publishing a textbook, you will need to add a textbook-specific search keyword to make sure readers can find your book easily.
