In the trenches with accessible EPUB: Tales from the publishing front lines

  • March 23, 2017
Under a Google Impact Challenge Award from Google’s charitable foundation,, DAISY has been building a ground-breaking accessibility certification process based on the new IDPF EPUB Accessibility 1.0 Specification. To support this process, Benetech launched a pilot program that involved working closely with publishers and conversion venders to evaluate the accessibility of their content. This presentation reviews the findings from that program, which are informing a certification process that will be widely adopted by the publishing industry. The ability for publishers to objectively validate that their content is certifiably accessible is closer than you may think.
