NNELS is a library of books in accessible formats available to readers with print disabilities across Canada. It’s an exciting time for these readers! We’re working with Canadian publishers to learn how to make ebooks that are “born accessible” which means that they are built in such a way that anyone can read them with the tools they have, including ebook readers, apps, and assistive technology. We’d love to share what we’ve learned so far, where we’re going next, and invite you to be part of the movement.
We’d also like to spend some time being very practical by reviewing procedures for accessing alternate format materials and pairing them with technology and reading tools. Please bring your questions about books, file formats, or patrons with print disabilities in your community.
