Accessible eBooks: A Journey through the eBook Supply Chain

After a year of rapid change, this popular annual seminar provides an up-to-the minute overview of progress made and brings together speakers from across the supply chain – from publishers to platform providers, distributors and device manufacturers – on the opportunities and challenges of publishing accessible eBooks.


With increasing accessibility in eReading platforms, devices and apps, the book industry can bring their books in accessible formats direct to their readers in a way that has never been possible before. And with an estimated one in eight people currently unable to read standard print, there is an ever growing market for accessible content. Mainstreaming accessibility, therefore, makes commercial sense but it can only be truly achieved if all parts of the supply chain work in collaboration.


This year’s accessibility seminar, organised by EDItEUR and RNIB with the support of The Publishers Association (PA), will provide a fascinating, non-technical insight into how this can be achieved. Starting with producing a "born accessible" file and moving through the eBook supply chain, you will find out how collaborating with your partners in the supply chain can make a real difference to consumers' reading experiences.
This seminar is suitable for everyone in the book industry who is involved in producing good quality eBooks and bringing them to their readers:
• Publishers – in editorial, design, production, IT and sales and marketing roles
• eBook conversion houses
• Platform providers
• Device manufacturers
• Developers of software /apps
