Building Suitable Inclusive Publishing Ecosystems for Developing Countries
The infrastructure for providing accessible books is very different in high and low income countries. The target age group of users, their requirements and skill set too are different. Technology gaps, affordability and local language issues need to be addressed to provide usable solutions. Besides these challenges, changes in publishing and reading work flows are to be managed. This session will reflect on the work of development agencies over the last few years providing accessible books in developing countries. We’ll share examples where effective solutions are provided, and draw lessons that can be replicated in many other countries.
