Accessible magazines

Hi all,

Recently, some company has presented to me their product, which aims to
create an online magazine, where each page of it is displayed differently
similar to a slide show presentation - in which it’s possible to change
each slide layout.

Infect, the magazine originally is created from a Google Slides presentation

Let me describe the process:

· They create the content using Google Slides

· The presentation is exported as a PDF document using “save as PDF”
option in Google Slides

· This PDF is then uploaded to a service called “Flip HTML”

· At the end, the HTML conversion output is not accessible to screen
readers because the output is converted to an image of text

This company is interested to have the option to be able to create
different designs for the different pages which is very easy to achieve
using Apple Keynote, Google Slides, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc.

Also it is very important to mention that this company don't want to use
fixed templates for each page which can't be changed easily using the
standard authoring tools. Also, it seems that at this point they don't want
to use Google slide shows or any other similar tool is linked to the
presentation on the web page.

As far as I know, this setting is very difficult to have using
conventional website building tools, especially when every few days, a new
magazine is released.

So I am looking for a tool that Ken create an interactive magazine, in
which each page the layout can be different and also meets the WCAG (2.0
Level A and AA which is the standard required in Israel)

If any of you guys knows accessible tools for this purpose that can be easy
and intuitive to use,I would very much appreciate any information regarding
this topic.

Thanks in advance
