2019 June 5

The Book Industry Study Group released an updated Quick Start Guide to Accessible Publishing on January 18, 2019, accompanied by an article in Publishers Weekly to help promote awareness about its utility. Although the original Quick Start Guide was completed in 2016, this revised update covers new advancements to help publishers create more born accessible content that addresses the needs of a broader audience. Alignment of standards that enable the prospect of Born Accessible also paves the way for new features such as an EPUB 3 with proper HTML tagging, ARIA attributes, and accessibility metadata. Since its recent launch, some publishers have already been calling the publication their “go-to guide for accessible publishing.”
