Not everyone can read an ebook, especially when it isn’t fully accessible. About 10% of Canadians may not be able to read books in print format because of vision, mobility, and comprehension impairments. These readers are typically not part of a publisher’s market, but they could be. NNELS (nnels.ca) is a publicly-funded accessible format producer that makes digital books available to people with print disabilities through public libraries. Basically, we redo your ebooks from scratch and distribute them in accessible e-text, DAISY and EPUB 3 formats. We’ll show you what we do to make a book accessible and demonstrate how EPUB files behave when they’re not accessible.
