Accessibility Master Class: It's Not Rocket Science, and You're Closer Than You Think
Recent and upcoming changes in the regulatory landscape are making it impossible for publishers to ignore accessibility if they want to fully serve all the markets available to them—library, governmental and educational. Legal mandates are being harmonized globally; procurement rules and individual purchases increasingly demand that content be provided in accessible forms. While many publishers have long recognized the importance of accessibility, the lack of clarity as to what exactly is required has slowed their progress. The good news: most publishers are much closer to having good, accessible content than they realize because properly structured EPUB files are inherently accessible.
This session will:
• Review the new EPUB Accessibility guidelines which provide a baseline for success
• Provide clear guidance on what to do and how to do it
• Discuss the metadata and documents you need to demonstrate a work is accessible
