The newly released Accessible Backlist Ebooks (ABE Lab) project report on Backlist Data and Gap Analysis provides relevant information for all looking to remediate their backlist ebooks to make them compliant with the accessibility requirements of the European Accessibility Act (EAA). The report was officially released on October 30th 2023 and is available for free download on the ABELab deliverables webpage.
