Brian,

I agree! I saw several univ sites letting folks know NOT to use Issuu.
:-(. I am playing ³bad cop² too often these days, thanks to vendors who
haven¹t caught up with the awesomeness that is accessibility (Can we say,
³Prezi²?!?!)!

Happy Friday!
Rachel

Rachel, I Googled "issuu accessibility" and the results were not very
promising regarding Issuu supporting accessibility. That's just a 2-second
quick Google-check, but where there's smoke...

Hi, all.

Are any of you using Issuu<https://issuu.com/> or a similar service for
web publication of materials designed for print? We have a college that
produces newsletters for several of its departments and they are
considering Issuu to embed newsletters in their websites. It doesn¹t
appear to be accessible and their forum doesn¹t have much discussion at
all about making content accessible.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Rachel
