Best way to share audio + text content for viewing on iPhone?
July 5, 2014 3:38 PM Subscribe
I want to create multi-page content consisting of text + spoken-word-audio, viewable on iPhone. Content consumption would work as follows:
1. Page displays text and plays audio (additional tap to launch audio would be okay)
2. User taps something to call up next page.
My first thought was Powerpoint, but I haven't found an iPhone app that handles audio embedded in PPT. I'm limited to working on my Windows PC, so I think Keynote is out. Any thoughts on a format to use for the content, and app to use to consume it?

For context, this is meant to support a Xmas present for my 3-year-old niece.
Last time I was in Paris, I bought her a picture book (in French) about kittens. Neither my sister nor brother-in-law speaks French, but I do (well, enough French to read a book targeted at ages 2-4). So my idea is to record my self reading it out loud, page-by-page, paired with a text translation into English. That way, even though I live 1000 miles away, my sister can have me "read" it to my niece, yet my sister can follow along in English and explain to my niece as necessary. (And in case it's not clear, I'll be manually doing the translation myself.)
I want my sister to be able to store it and run it on her iPhone, for convenience. I want the content broken into pages so it can run at her pace, just like normal book-reading.
I don't have an iPhone (I use Android), but my wife does. I'm sure she'd let me do limited testing, but I'd rather not take over her phone for a day while I sort this out.
