Accessible Publishing Working Groups – Breakout Breakfast
Gather your breakfast in the lower level concourse and head upstairs to the Collaboration Centre (room CR-2) to reconnect with the accessible publishing community following January's Accessible Publishing Summit in Toronto. Discuss working group opportunities and next steps, and recommit to the plan for best practices and techniques for accessible publishing.


The Accessibility Supply Chain: Reporting from the Front Lines of Inclusive Ebook Production
Join Shannon Culver and Sabina Iseli-Otto for an overview of lessons learned at this year's Accessible Publishing Summit. Representatives from across the North American digital book supply chain convened over two days in January 2019 for facilitated dialogue and conversation on accessible publishing. By sharing diverse perspectives, and identifying the assets and challenges of born-accessible publishing, attendees gained a deeper understanding of accessible publishing and collaborated to develop a draft set of guidelines for digital accessibility. Shannon and Sabina will present the guidelines and share next steps toward industry-wide implementation.
