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. I'll break down how we went from three accessible ebooks in our whole catalogue to publishing our entire frontlist as WCAG 2.0 AA level accessible EPUB 3.0 files and what publishers, editors, and production folks can do to make immediate progress on creating accessible ebooks.

This workshop is for people who have control over print production, digital production, and metadata.
