Accessibility progress? YES!
The challenge of making new digital content born accessible, and accessible all the way to the end user, requires partnerships and technological innovation. In 2015, Benetech set a goal to influence 15 publishers and their partners to make positive steps toward Born Accessible by producing more accessible materials in 2016. Through its DIAGRAM Center and Born Accessible initiatives, Benetech develops standards, guidelines, and technology tools to make it easier to create, discover, use, and interact with accessible content, including images, graphics, and math, building on its vast experience running Bookshare, the world’s largest accessible library. This session will highlight the 15 companies Benetech worked with and describe the steps they took toward making their materials in an accessible manner.
