Digital Publishing Forum: Accessible Publishing, we are closer than we think

The International Publishers Association has issued a statement affirming that publishers want our books to be read by everyone, and outlining a vision that all readers should be able to purchase books at a fair price and read them when and where they want to, regardless of disability.

This Digital Publishing Forum will explore the practical ways in which our community is working towards this vision, and is driving towards mainstream accessible publishing.

EDItEUR's Sarah Hilderley will be speaking on industry guidance and how publishers can get started. Huw Alexander will discuss SAGE's approach to accessibility and, in particular, the award they have received recently from JISC TechDis in recognition of the excellent service SAGE offers in supplying alternative formats. Alyssum Ross will be concentrating on publishers' workflows and how Hodder have managed to implement different workflows across the business in accordance with the type of product being published.
