Alberto Pettarin @acutebit of SMUUKS has created a full SMIL audio overlay ePub3 for free download. SMIL production is non-trivial and this makes only two books that are freely available with full audio overlays. Our own A Christmas Carol and now The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. (If there are any more please let me know.)

Directly from the SMUUKS site:

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a short story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It appeared for the first time in Colliers Magazine in 1922, and later in the anthology Tales of the Jazz Age.

Smuuks is proud to release it as a free Audio-eBook in (open, DRM-free) EPUB 3 format, so that anyone could read, listen, or read+listen it.

The text of this Audio-eBook is a revised version of the text available from Project Gutenberg, which is in the public domain.

The audio tracks were extracted from the reading by Mike Vendetti for the LibriVox Project, which is in the public domain. This Audio-eBook contains 13 audio tracks in MP3 and OGG formats, 128 Kbps, 44 KHz, Mono, a playlist in M3U format and the full text in EPUB 3 format. The total length is 1h 01'. (If you want to extract the audio tracks, unzip this EPUB file and look inside the OEBPS/Audio/ directory.)

The cover image is an elaboration of the original book cover, created from a digital scan downloaded from Group American Literature.The Audio-eBook can be downloaded for free in EPUB 3 format (85 MB)."

The link to download Benjamin Button from the SMUUKS site and other free and useful demonstration ePub3 books are available on EPUB3 WORLD.
