Publishers and vendors doing the right thing!

The digital book experience provides new and fascinating ways to read the book treasures of the world – also with new social components. Annotations written by experts, your teacher or neighbour can supplement the words of the original author.

Today’s digital book industry shows several good examples of products and services that provide an acceptable user experience for many people with reading disabilities. To make a commercial reading service truly accessible to everyone involves all links in the chain- including authoring tools, purchase portals and reading systems.

Who is it for?

If you are interested in the inclusion potential of commercial digital publishing and e-book services - this is your track. You will be shown successful samples of e-book services that are inclusive to people with disabilities. Distinguished industry representatives will describe how publishing corporations build in accessibility in their workflow and technology – and what the limitations are that we need to be aware of.
