Accessible ebook platforms – seven honest dealers | Jisc TechDis Blog

Last autumn we started a project with the Publishers Accessibility Action Group to see if we could raise awareness of accessibility issues with platform providers. Sarah Hilderley and Alistair McNaught contacted 13 of the bigger providers (who would have a presence in many universities or colleges) and asked them to complete a simple survey asking about accessibility from an end-user perspective. For a variety of reasons (including job changes) it has been difficult to collate the results until recently so some of the platform details may have been upgraded in the last 9 months but this can be regarded as a snapshot of platform accessibility at the beginning of the year.

Seven of the 13 contacted responded by providing data. We commend the following for their active honest engagement. Thankyou to our 7 honest dealers; ACLS Humanities E-Book; Gale/Cengage; EBL (ebrary); EBSCO; Elsevier; Emerald Insight and Ingram. Cambridge University Press were in the middle of a redesign with enhanced accessibility so felt that results from existing platform would be unrepresentative. This seemed a fair reason. But we were disappointed in the non response from the other 5 big names. If there’s a platform you expected to see here but they are not represented then feel free to ask them for a personal response regarding their accessibility credentials…
