Inclusive Design 24 is a free 24-hour online community event on accessibility. It celebrates efforts worldwide to ensure people with disabilities have full and equal access to the web. This 24 hour completely free event includes 24 one-hour webinars on all things accessibility. The sessions range from beginner to advanced and are aimed at everyone from executives to web developers. Of particular interest to our audience is the session entitled: 360° Accessible Book Publishing presented by Laura Brady (Publishing consultant) and Tzviya Siegman (Wiley).
Details for this session: The work of accessible publishing often falls squarely and solely on the shoulders of production staff. And this is a problem. In order for the needle to be meaningfully moved on accessibility, the work of publishing inclusively must permeate a publishing house, with the meaningful involvement of editors, designers, marketing, and sales being critical pieces of the puzzle. In this talk, we will go through some accessibility actions for everyone in the publishing industry.
