Description

Accessible educational materials and technologies provide opportunities for learners with disabilities to “acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services” as learners without disabilities. One format for presenting content in a flexible way that addresses the needs and preferences of our diverse learners is EPUB. In this session, participants will learn about best practices for ensuring the accessibility of  EPUB publications so that they work for all learners.
