A new enhanced digital version of the Mountain View Voice is now available for online readers.
The new "virtual edition" enables users to flip through the paper electronically — turning pages and zooming in on specific stories or ads — and to print out pages of interest.
The edition is similar to a PDF (which also remains available on the Voice Web site) but doesn't take as long to load and offers intuitive tools and features that resemble the process of reading a physical newspaper.
In addition to current and past issues of the Voice, special publications such as Info, Neighborhoods and Living Well will also be available in the new format.
The "virtual edition" can be accessed at www.mountainviewonline.com by scrolling down to "Recent Issues" on the lower right or by clicking on "The Voice" in the teal navigation bar on the site's left-hand side.
The virtual edition is powered by Issuu, Inc., a Menlo Park company offering digital-publishing platforms. Founded in 2006, it was named one of the 50 best Web sites in 2009 by Time.com.
