Joint Statement on ebook accessibility
The Publishers Association, EDItEUR, RNIB, Dyslexia Action and JISC TechDis have jointly issued a statement on accessibility and ebooks. It calls on others across the supply chain to support the statement. It says that:
"ebooks should enable all reader... to access new books as they are published in ebook form and at no additional cost."
"The mechanisms by which an ebook is made accessible involve all the actors in the supply chain... Publishers, ebook device manufacturers, platform developers, ebook wholesalers and retailers, and of course consumers themselves all have their part to play."
