Feedback form is now closed.
In the last session of three session we look at accessible course content, which falls into one of three descriptions: born accessible, buy accessible, and finding accessible. These may seem straightforward, but they are interconnected ideas that together guide assurances that content is accessible for all. This conversation focuses on publishers coming together with suppliers and institutions for an open dialog about what born, buy and finding accessible means and to define what is needed by each member of this community to get and stay on the track towards fully inclusive publishing.
