We want to hear from Canadian publishers who are interested in partnering with us to work toward ebook accessibility. Whether we have worked with you before, or this is your first time hearing about us, we would love to hear from you! Publishers of any size are welcome to sign up using the Partnering with NNELS for Ebook Accessibility (2022) application form.
For this project, we will partner our accessibility advisors with publishers. We will provide accessibility assessments and evaluations of EPUBs, and re-evaluate revised files. Publishers will learn how to make better ebooks, and we will work with you to learn about your publishing workflow! This will allow us to develop and refine our recommendations for publishers, and improve the accessible publishing landscape in Canada.
Publishers who wish to be a part of this project should be open to modifying their workflow in order to make their books more accessible.
If you have never made an EPUB, you are still welcome to apply for the project, as long as you would like to give it a try, with a team of accessibility experts on your side!
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program - Disability Component.
