Inclusive Publishing Partner
The DAISY Consortium are pleased to introduce the new Inclusive Publishing Partner initiative, offered to the publishing industry as a way to support the production of mainstream digital content accessible to all readers, irrespective of their ability. We have an exciting range of benefits outlined to enable participating organizations to be at the forefront of development and to receive expert support and guidance.
The Benefits of Becoming an Inclusive Publishing Partner
There are actually too many benefits to list on this page, and we are exploring new benefits all the time, so for a full list see the Inclusive Publishing Partner Benefits page. A few highlights are listed below:
- Support via access to technical expertise, discussion groups, reading system testing and accessibility email assistance (subject to a reasonable use policy)
- Insider preview access to new developments, including opportunity to test and provide feedback for refinement of features
- Opportunity to publish one non-commercial article on Inclusive Publishing to highlight accessibility focus, learning points and achievements (subject to editorial approval)
- Licence to access SMART, for use by you and your vendors when working on your publications
Following consultation with the wider industry we are offering an introductory flat-rate of USD$5k per annum, with the opportunity for larger organizations to contribute at a higher level to better support the work of the DAISY Consortium. This allows as many organizations as possible to benefit from DAISY support in the creation of their mainstream accessible content.
