WEBINAR: Digital Equality - The Importance of Accessibility in Your Publishing Strategy

Compelled by clear ethical reasons and compliance requirements, most publishers are working to make content fully accessible. Creating content that is “born accessible” also opens up new opportunities for publishers to expand the reach of content and connect with new audiences and markets. The same technologies and guidelines that improve access to materials for people with visual, hearing, mobility, perceptual and cognitive limitations, or who face other barriers to reading printed materials, can also be tremendously useful to all customers.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how verified accessible content drives positive social change through technology AND makes good business sense. You’ll learn:

  • How properly structured and tagged content improves discoverability and is the foundation for accessibility
  • What Section 508 and WCAG compliance means for publishers and their digital content
  • Practical tips to build accessibility into publishing workflows
  • How well structured content and metadata improves rendering for multiple formats and platforms, including HTML5 and EPUB3

Panelists

  • Rachel Comerford, Director of Content Standards, Macmillan Learning
  • Anna Selden, Associate Director of Publications, Georgetown Law
  • Rohan Kohli, Head, Learning Design & Accessibility, Cenveo Publisher Services
  • Denis Wilson, Editor-in-Chief, Publishing Executive/Book Business
