We want to hear from Canadian publishers who might be 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.
We would like to work with you on one or two new release titles that you have scheduled for release in the fall or winter.
In this project, we will pair one of our team of accessibility testers with you. Over the course of a few months, they will work with you (virtually, and possibly in person) in order to help establish changes to your workflow which will result in the creation of the most accessible ebooks possible. They will ask questions to learn about your publishing workflow and explore the files you share with them, checking for accessibility features. They will make suggestions from their expert perspective – about where and how accessibility can be built into your publishing process.
If you have any questions, please email our Accessible Publishing Coordinator, Leah Brochu, at email@example.com.
We are open to all genres, from full-text novels, to illustrated children's picture books, to poetry, to academic texts with charts and graphs. Please indicate the type of books you would like us to work on with you in the application.
Applications are now closed. Please contact Leah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more, or have been invited to submit an application.
