Accessible e-books can reach multitudes more readers than print, including readers with visual and reading disabilities. International treaties, national laws, library purchasing programs, and government and university publishing are all involved in creating e-books that are available to readers underserved by print editions. This webinar will address:

  • Laws governing e-book accessibility
  • Editorial influence on book structure
  • The nitty-gritty of grammar and language choices (an italic word is not always italic!)
  • The editor’s role in art selection, captions, and descriptive text
  • How not to use color to signify meaning
  • How to build robust ebook navigation: there’s more than one table of contents

You will come away realizing just how familiar most of the concepts are. All you need is a shift in focus.

Kevin Callahan, the proprietor of BNGO Books, is an e-book developer, writer, and speaker based in New York City. He has presented sessions at PePcon, InDesign Conference, Digital Book World, and ebookcraft.

This webinar originally aired on April 25, 2018.
