Building on the April hangout on accessibility, the EDP Workshop on Integrating Accessibility into EDP Workflows will dig deeper into the logistics of creating accessible ebooks and integrating accessibility into your workflows. Short informal Q&A sessions on gathering and preparing material for accessible ebooks, creating accessible ebooks (in- and out-of-house), and navigating the various resources and certifications available to presses will each be followed by small breakout sessions. EDP staff who are just getting started with accessibility and those with more experience are all invited to participate.
