From Content Creation to Content Delivery: Partnering to improve e-book accessibility

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Part I. We will discuss how publishers, aggregators, and libraries can partner to provide a better experience for users.  We will discuss the consolidated results of a number of studies and audits of eBook accessibility, limitations and options for creating accessible PDF and EPUB eBook files, the real-life impact of these limitations on users, and what skillsets we can help to develop and disseminate to help close the gap.

Part II. We will discuss the methods to assess accessibility of your eBooks, website or other electronic resources.  We will look at both automated testing systems and usability testing.  After this session we hope you will have an understanding of how these two approaches can be leveraged to help optimize the research experience for your users.
