In a few easy steps you can open up your books to the millions of readers who can’t access texts in conventional formats because they are visually impaired or otherwise ‘print disabled’: in this session, the International Authors Forum tells you how. There is currently a global ‘famine’ of books that include the features necessary for the millions of blind people to be able to read them, and denying them access to the diversity of books that sighted readers can access. The technology is now in place to solve this famine. The International Authors Forum has produced a set of guidelines for self-publishing authors to make it easy for them to make sure their books can be accessed this audience. Katie Webb, IAF’s Executive Administrator, will take you on a tour of the guidelines, which are available to download for free.
