Description

Making sure that tools, platforms, and content work for everyone is the right thing to do AND makes a lot of business sense. But, creating workflows for born-accessible content presents both technical and cultural challenges. While XML and HTML can lay the groundwork for an accessible tool chain, much more is needed to make content accessible. In this session, Tzviya Siegman - Digital Book Standards and Capabilities Lead at John Wiley and Sons, and Rick Johnson - VP of Product Strategy atVitalSource Technologies, will discuss their work creating and implementing born-accessible content and platforms. They will cover some existing best practices, accessibility-testing tools, and focus on the human factors in publishing accessible content. Panelists: Tzviya Siegman, Digital Book Standards and Capabilities Lead - John Wiley & Sons Rick Johnson, VP of Product Strategy at VitalSource Technologies - ‎VitalSource Technologies
