DAISY Consortium

DAISY is developing industry-standard accessibility tools for publishers to ensure that every book is accessible to people with disabilities when printed.

Problem

Most books that are published are inaccessible for the visually impaired, people with learning disabilities, or other print disabilities. Currently, NGOs fill this gap by converting books themselves, but there’s a wealth of content that is never made accessible.

Project

DAISY is partnering with the publishing industry to create an accessibility baseline for digital publications, and developing a suite of industry-standard accessibility tools to integrate into the regular publishing process.

Impact

From the start, ensure that every book is accessible to people with disabilities when published.
