"This free ebook covers the accessibility features built into Apple mobile devices, including the iPad, the iPod touch and the iPhone. Each section includes practice activities for you to practice the techniques and tips discussed in the ebook."
How to eBooks on "ePub Accessibility Best Practices" and "Closed Captioning 101: "These two ebooks cover topics related to the accessibility of the content available for Apple mobile devices. My hope is that by following the suggestions in these ebooks you will create more accessible ebooks and caption as many of your videos as possible. These practices will go a long way toward ensuring equal access to information for people with disabilities who use mobile devices."
