Transition to EPUB 3 made possible
Accessible EPUB 3 Standard promises a revolution in inclusive publishing and reading, bringing great advancements for print-disabled and new opportunities for DAISY members! At the same time, it brings a paradigm shift in the way members produce accessible content and the way print-disabled readers consume published information, making transition to EPUB 3 a non-trivial process. Moreover, the diversity in worldwide membership necessitates different approaches for transition.
The presentation will touch upon the main bottlenecks faced by DAISY members in transition to EPUB 3, thereafter the members will present the case studies, demonstrating their successful transition. The early movers will share the approaches for migrating their diverse production processes, distribution, and supported reading systems to EPUB 3.
