We know that making our digital books accessible is important for publishers and creators of all sizes. There are a ton of great resources, information, and tools out there to help you start creating fully accessible ebooks, but nonetheless, it can be an overwhelming project for busy publishing houses with limited resources, smaller startups, or for individual creators.
