  • Benetech’s VP of Engineering, Gerardo Capiel, discussed accessibility metadata and accessible images and math during his session, Born Accessible.
  • Hear Gerardo’s talk, starting at minute 18 of this recording.
  • Discussion summary: despite accessibility efforts around standards by publishers, until the reading systems support accessibility (e.g. MathML and SVG) it will be hard for publishers to justify the effort of supporting these things. Stopgap approaches include using PNG with math, and having automatically generated descriptions as ALT text.
