Overview

Although the digital revolution has made content available to more people than print books ever could, ebooks are still only as accessible as the foundation they’re built on—and all too often the foundation is weak. But that’s changing. With the introduction of EPUB 3, publishers now have the means to create a single rich data source for audiences of all reading abilities.

Through practical tips and examples, Accessible EPUB 3 takes you inside the EPUB 3 format and explores how you can enrich and enhance content for all readers. Author Matt Garrish demystifies the process of making content easier to access, demonstrating how accessible practices are intertwined with standard content best practices.

Among many techniques, this guide will teach you how to:

  • Add structure and meaning to your publications to make them more usable by accessible technologies
  • Tailor EPUB Navigation Documents for readers requiring either full or reduced navigation
  • Create media overlays to synchronize human narration with text display
  • Improve text-to-speech playback by adding SSML, PLS lexicons, and CSS3 Speech functionality

Meet the Author

Matt Garrish lives and works in Toronto where he does what he can to help bridge the print divide that sadly still keeps much of the world's literature and information from being available to everyone. He's worked closely with CNIB and the DAISY Consortium in their efforts to make the world a more accessible place — including editing the Z39.86 Authoring and Interchange specification — and drew on his years of experience ripping the guts out of EPUBs to make braille when invited to work as the editor of the EPUB3 revision. He is the author of "What is EPUB3?."

    Confusing Title

    This book appears to be written for technical persons, who want to actually publish material. I was looking for end-user ePub iinformation, e.g. how to access ePub books. One star ---because I'm not able to assess the books helpfullness to ePublishers.
