Re: Advice on reating accessible e-books


Date: Feb 17, 2015 5:31PM

Hi all. I'm weighing in this discussion a bit late here, but I was wondering what y'all think of Apple's iBooks implementation on the Mac if any of you have tried it? I've read in a few places—including Apple themselves—that iBooks is now accessible as of OS X Yosemite. Just this morning I tried it out for myself, and I'm very impressed so far. I was able to read part of Jonathan Mosen's book about ACB Radio, and I bookmarked my place because I had other things to do. But it seems to be very good in terms of VoiceOver performance.

Thanks for the link, Deborah. I've found the EPUB 3 Best Practices book
but it doesn't look as useful as yours.

We are at the info-gathering stage. We've found plenty of general info, but
I thought it would be worth getting intel from people that have been
through the process of publishing an e-book and can recommend tools and
processes that worked for them.
