Get a firsthand look at how an ebook's accessibility features are used by people with print disabilities. Accessibility testers Karoline Bourdeau, Daniella Levy-Pinto, Ka Li, and Steve Murgaski from the National Network for Equitable Library Service have generously donated their time to show ebookcraft attendees how ebooks are used (or can't be used) in real life.
