Reading apps and accessibility – user requirements and helpful guidance

Increasingly publishers are creating titles with content that is accessible to more people with different accessibility needs. But what about the apps that are used to read all these wonderful books, journals and documents? This presentation will describe the features needed by readers with different print impairments, and explain the methodology that is being used to test apps available today. The publicly available evaluation results help individuals and institutions make choices about reading systems, and inform developers about what improvements will help them to reach more markets. Lastly, you will learn how you can participate in this important effort.
