We are happy to announce that we’re scheduling several webinars on accessible publishing and reading. This is in response to multiple challenges faced by conferences around the world due to Coronavirus, as well as feedback from the wider DAISY community expressing interest in online training resources.

These webinars will be:
  • free of charge to anyone anywhere
  • run for up to 1 hour
  • have capacity for up to 500 participants to experience and interact with live
  • archived for later viewing if you missed the live session
Our schedule will initially be formed of presentations including:
  • Publishers Faceoff to Prove the Accessibility of their EPUB - Educational Publishers have their EPUB textbooks scrutinized by experts in the accessibility field to prove they are worthy of being certified as Born Accessible.
  • Quest for the Holy Grail: Publishers Making Math Accessible - The quest for the best practice delivery of mathematical educational materials continues. Our noble heroes will present the testing results and the current recommendation. 
  • Creating Accessible EPUB eBooks from Word is Easy and Free - A presentation from NFB sparked an international effort to deliver a simple yet powerful tool for accessible EPUB – here’s what we have delivered.
  • Universal Extended Image Descriptions for Publishers - A hackathon success story about building an open, modular, and robust solution to inclusive image descriptions.
  • Many more sessions to be announced.
