Understanding Accessibility in EPUB

Currently less than 8% of the world’s books ever make it into accessible formats.

Making our books, ebooks and other content accessible is crucial, both from an ethical standpoint and as a legal requirement. This presentation is aimed at digital publishing professionals wanting to improve their publishing practices using EPUB.

  • Adding accessibility within InDesign
  • Extra Recommend tools (Sigil, Brackets, GreenLight)
  • Epub:types, ARIA Roles & semantics
  • Image descriptions and alt text
  • Structure, TOCs, Page Lists, Landmarks and supplemental lists
  • Language declarations and shifts
  • Adding Schema.org Metadata
  • Checking accessibility with ACE
  • Modern ebook reading software for accessible EPUB content
  • Stop Press! Also to include a look at the brand new format recommended by W3C for Audiobooks

The course is led by Ken Jones, a publishing software expert with over ten years’ experience as technical production manager, trainer and developer at Penguin Group in the UK.
