The fifth edition of this event on digital accessibility will be a 2 day affair this year  bringing together both experts and users at the same table, which makes it possible to discuss the daily problems encountered by people with disabilities. The program includes many interesting sessions for our readers with day 1 dedicated to conferences and round tables and day 2 devoted to workshops.

The EAA countdown series of webinars begins with an introduction to the EAA itself, exploring the implications for people involved in publishing and reading, and talking to industry professionals actively working to prepare their organizations and others. The webinar announcement article gives information on the first 4 webinars in this series.

This session will address best practices and evolving standards in web accessibility. Industry resources such as NISO Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) Standards and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) will be discussed. DAISY’s George Kerscher will be a guest speaker on this panel offering insights on resources and best practices for ensuring accessibility is integrated in the publishing ecosystem.

This webinar is one session in the NISO program “DEIA in the Scholarly Landscape”

The 2nd webinar in the Countdown to the EAA webinar series from DAISY considers the complexity of reworking existing materials to incorporate accessibility. This can vary greatly depending on the nature of the published content. There are however a series of strategies that, if adopted, can aid the rework process. In this webinar we will hear from those actively involved in supporting the rework of backlist titles to ensure they’re compliant with EAA.
