  1. 1. Publisher Accessibility Newsletter Issue 7, December 2009 Welcome to the 7th issue of the Publisher Accessibility Newsletter Inside you will find an overview of current activities in progress – both in the UK and abroad - designed to help publishers meet the precise requirements of people with print disabilities. We hope you find the information contained in this document both interesting and educational. Contents UK Activities Awards/Prizes International Activities Helpful Information Dates for your Diary This newsletter is produced under the auspices of the Accessibility Action Group, which has expanded and is formed of: • Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers • Book Industry Communication • Copyright Licensing Agency • Independent Publishers Guild • Newspaper Licensing Agency • Newspaper Society • Periodical Publishers Association • Publishers Association • Publishers Licensing Society • and with participation from the Newspaper Publishers Association
  2. 2. UK Activities Focus Project In the lead up to Christmas, there are now over 80 new and best-selling books published in large print as part of the Focus Project. Focus is a pilot initiative making it possible for readers to buy or order large print books through mainstream bookshops. Focus has recently been in the press with top authors championing the project in television and online interviews. Focus, was launched in April and was initiated and funded by PLS and RNIB. The books are published by the RNIB in association with BBC Audiobooks and leading publishers including Little Brown, Hodder, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin and Random House. For people who cannot get to a bookshop, it is now possible to order the books online. Visit www.focusonbooks.co.uk or contact Hannah Blake on 020 7631 2666 for more information. Publishers Association guidelines for meeting the permissions needs of disabled people After extensive consultation the PA has developed guidelines to assist publishers in responding effectively to requests from disabled people, particularly visually impaired people. The guidelines are now available on the PA website. Please go to http://www.publishers.org.uk/en/ home/accessibility/ to view. Braille and large print versions of World Book Day £1.00 books For over 10 years the Joseph Clarke School for the Visually Impaired has worked with World Book Day to produce braille versions of the £1.00 books, with funding from the Vision charity. They have now acquired a new partner, the National Blind Children’s Society, which is helping to produce large print versions. The aim is to provide visually impaired children throughout the UK with an accessible version of the World Book Day book of their choice, to keep as their own rather than having to borrow the books from a library. Braille copies also go to braille colleges in other parts of the English-speaking world.
  3. 3. World Book Day next year is on the 4 March and members of The Publishers Association’s Children’s Book Group are producing six new titles, including a ‘Thomas The Tank Engine’ picture book and five 2-in-1 ‘flipbooks’ for different age groups from 5+ to 11+. The flipbooks combine two full-length books from separate publishers. The 2010 braille and large print books will replicate this flipbook format. For more information see www.worldbookday.com PublisherLookup website The Publisher Lookup website (created jointly by JISC TechDis and The Publishers Association) enables educationalists working with disabled learners to get electronic versions of published texts as quickly as possible. The site has seen solid growth since its launch in November 2008. The graph below illustrates the growth in visitors (based on unique IP addresses) over the last year. 43% of these visitors have browsed more than one page with 32% browsing more than five pages. In terms of internationalisation - roughly 66% percent of visitors come from the UK, and people from a very wide variety of other countries visit including Australia and the USA. We’d like to congratulate Elsevier which is the most frequently accessed publisher from the website!

  4. 4. Free Copyright Licences for visually impaired people The Library and Information Gazette has recently published an excellent guide to ‘Copying for Visually Impaired People’ under its Law Spotlight section. The article highlights the CLA licences, which include permissions to create accessible copies for persons suffering from a print disability preventing access to licensed material. CLA also has a specific VI licence for the making of accessible copies for print disabled individuals outside the licensee’s organisation. Please go to http://www.cla.co.uk/vip_licence.php to view the licence details. PenFriend A small children's publisher has adapted its TalkingPEN product for the RNIB to help visually impaired and blind people with the labelling of household products. The Penfriend enables a visually impaired person to make a recording of an item and play back what the item is according to the label. To view the full video of the PenFriends capabilities please click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=ePE0-U73Ajc Listening Books Listening Books is a UK charity providing a selection of high-quality audiobooks to over 7000 people across the UK who find it difficult or impossible to read due to illness or disability. Listening Books sends audiobooks through the post on MP3 CD or they can be listened to via the internet. Listening Books has recently launched a new website with many additional options with a better audiobook streaming experience. Please visit the site by clicking on the link below. Listening Books welcomes any comments and suggestions about this service. http:// www.listening-books.org.uk Accessible Resources Pilot Project The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) has signed a contract agreement with a Dolphin-led consortium to deliver a small-scale pilot project over two years (2009-11). The project will develop and trial different curriculum formats for visually impaired and dyslexic pupils. There have now been 15 books produced by either scanning or using electronic files provided by publishers. This project is a key aspect of the
  5. 5. Department's drive to narrow the overall attainment gap between young people with special educational needs and disabilities, and their peers. It also forms the Department's response to the RNIB report Where's My Book? which demonstrated that the current system of providing accessible versions is ineffective. The Publishers Licensing Society and The Publishers Association have played key roles in garnering support for this pilot project from individual publishers of educational material. Kate Harris, Chair of the Educational Publishers Council and Managing Director of the Education and Children's Division of Oxford University Press said: 'It is vitally important that children with print disabilities have the books they need in accessible formats. The outcomes from this project will help us all — Government, parents, publishers, specialist support staff, teachers and more importantly the students themselves, to work together to understand the best ways to meet this objective for more children’. For more information go to http://www.teachernet.gov.uk/wholeschool/sen/arpp/access/ National Talking Newspapers and Magazines Working with representatives of talking newspaper projects, UK newspaper publishers have increased services for the visually impaired by switching to the NLA eClips database service. NLA eClips delivers content at midnight, allowing earlier loading of content to talking newspaper services. David Pugh, Managing Director of the NLA said: “The NLA’s eClips database is enabling the UK newspaper industry to support services for the visually impaired by extending the range and enhancing the timeliness of these services through provision of the top 150 newspapers in a user-friendly format.” Bernard Moreton, IT Manager of Talking Newspapers added: “Since we first started to source newspaper content from the NLA we have achieved significant improvement in speed and reliability in providing that content to our print-impaired members. The NLA have been most helpful, and we are glad to be working with them to bring newspaper content to those who cannot read the printed page.” For more information please go to http://www.nla.co.uk/index.php? option=com_content&task=view&id=6&Itemid=7 The DAISY Planet In September the DAISY newsletter reported on the DAISY 2009 Roadmap & Revision of the DAISY standard. George Kerscher, Secretary General of the DAISY Consortium was also interviewed. You can read his response to a number of key questions about the revision here: http://www.daisy.org/news/newsletters/planet-2009-09.php#a3
  6. 6. Accessibility news from the Right to Read Alliance ‘e-book working group’ Summary The e-book market represents the single biggest opportunity for disabled users to fully participate in the world of reading. The Right to Read e-book working group consists of representatives from diverse sectors including assistive technology/software companies, the publishing industry, education and disability groups. The group’s activities revolve around grasping opportunities that technology offers the publishing industry in order to embed accessibility at the beginning of the publishing process. Key themes explored so far have included: • working proactively with industry representatives, • making users aware of the benefits of e-books • researching the accessibility of the hardware and software technologies on the market and the developing trends in e-books and e-book systems. For more information on the e-book working group please go to http://www.jisc- collections.ac.uk/workinggroups/ebooks.aspx JISC TechDis, JISC Collections and the Publishers Licensing Society JISC TechDis, JISC Collections and the Publishers Licensing Society are working with several publishers and aggregators on confidential testing of e-book platforms in order to create generic guidance for the industry on the ‘art of the possible’. RNIB As part of the e-book working group the RNIB continue to support future developments and is currently developing protocols for Text to Speech, investigating the accessibility of several market leading e-book readers. RNIB and European Blind Union at Frankfurt Book Fair The Frankfurt Book Fair this year hosted a demonstration on how e-book publishers could reach a potential extra 20 million people by taking advantage of usability features built into the latest e- book readers.
  7. 7. These demonstrations showed how the current generation of e-book readers deliver large print and basic text-to-speech functionality. The e-pub format is well designed to deliver e-books usable by everyone. Although the advancements in this field are positive there are still problems in usability. Adobe has promised significant improvements in usability of the Digital Editions DRM by next March; and Apple is incorporating speech and usability features into all its devices in a bid to capture the education market place. The demonstrations highlighted key messages for publishers including: • Make accessible publishing a policy • Publish e-books simultaneously with print • Use features in Adobe In-design so that there are no extra costs • Put pressure on Adobe to deliver on its promised improvements in usability of Digital Editions EyesFree Assistive Technology EyesFree is a new interface for Google's Android mobile phone operating system which provides a way for blind people to use a phone with a touch- sensitive screen. This is an illustration of what today's "assistive technology" looks like.

Adobe’s blog says that it plans to support a permissions- based DRM system which could ensure this functionality is open only to visually impaired persons. To read the blog please go to http://blogs.adobe.com/billmccoy/2009/10/adobe- ebooks--.html Prizes/Awards Jodi Awards 2009: International Award for the most accessible cultural website. The Jodie Awards are given by the Jodie Mattes Trust to promote equal access to disabled people through digital media. The award will be given on the 2 December at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London at a joint event with the UK Museums Computer
  8. 8. Group. For further information on the award please go to http://www.museumscomputergroup.org.uk/jodis The Frederick Thorpe Awards The IFLA Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities Section and Ulverscroft Foundation has developed a Best Practice Development Programme to include two Frederick Thorpe awards; one for individuals and one for organisations. The Individual Award gives the opportunity for people working in visually impaired library delivery services to ‘job- swap’, allowing best practice ideas to be shared between organisations, and to encourage individual development. The Organisation Award enables organisations to adopt and adapt developments from elsewhere to improve their service that could also be transferable to other libraries. The Ulverscroft Foundation and the IFLA Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities have also announced that the Foundation have agreed to provide renewed sponsorship of £20,000 to continue the best practice development programme. Publisher Lookup Awards JISC TechDis have set up two Publisher Lookup Awards sponsored by Dolphin and Iansyst. The first award is for ‘e-text services’ (e-books, PDFs etc) and it seeks to identify and commend publishers whose responsiveness to requests brings significant benefits to disabled learners. Librarians across the UK FE and HE sectors will be invited to nominate publishers who have shown high levels of professionalism, support or involvement in meeting their needs for a book in an alternative format. So if you think you do a good job you might make sure the librarians and disability officers you work with are aware of the award. A second award for ‘e-Text Systems’ is one where you nominate your own organisation – it seeks to identify and commend publishers who have developed workflows, practices, protocols or organisational structures that maximise their ability to be able to respond to the needs of disabled customers. You can nominate your organisation at http://tinyurl.com/tdpubaward and winners will be announced in Spring 2009 at the London Book Fair.
  9. 9. Man Booker Prize For the first time, every book short listed for the Man Booker Prize was available to blind and partially sighted readers. The prize introduced a clause requiring publishers to provide an electronic file of each long listed book to RNIB. A big thank you to the Booker Prize Foundation, Colman Getty and the publishers of the books for producing the books in braille, audio and giant print as this allowed production of short listed books to begin as soon as they were announced. As in previous years, the production of the books has also been funded by those connected to the Prize. The Man Group plc Charitable Trust has paid for the production of the Talking Book versions and the Booker Prize Foundation for the braille and giant print versions. Handheld Learning Awards 2009 CapturaTalk, whose mobile device allows people to take a photo of text and have it read to them, has won the Special Needs and Inclusion category, at the Handheld Learning Awards this year. CapturaTalk software uses high quality, natural sounding voices to read text out loud captured either from a photograph or an electronic document. CapturaTalk operates on a range of Windows operated mobile phones and is designed to offer reading support for those on the move. This is ideal for people who require literacy support for disabilities such as dyslexia. For more information go to http://www.capturatalk.com/index.asp Royal Mail Scottish Children's Book Awards The Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children’s Books is a nationwide reading project in which children and young people in Scotland vote for their favourite Scottish children's books of the year. CALL Scotland, a national centre of excellence in the use of ICT for children with disabilities, has worked with the Scottish Book Trust, authors and publishers to create accessible digital versions of nine shortlisted books. Children and young people with physical, visual and reading or dyslexic difficulties, who can’t read the paper books, can read these digital books instead and take part in the awards by voting for their favourite book. The books can be read out by the computer using “Heather”, a high quality Scottish computer voice that is freely available from the CALL Scotland’s web site at www.TheScottishVoice.org.uk In a related initiative, RNIB Scotland has produced large print, braille and audio copies of the books.
  10. 10. Paul Nisbet, Senior Research Fellow at CALL Scotland, said, “We are delighted that the Scottish Book Trust and the authors and publishers have been able to support this initiative to help children with print disabilities take part in the Scottish Book Awards. We are grateful to the publishers for providing digital copies for us to adapt, and we hope that these accessible digital books will raise awareness about our wider ‘Books for All initiative’. There are thousands of young people in Scotland who have difficulty reading books because they can’t see, can’t read, or can’t hold a book or turn pages, and the ‘Books for All work’, which is part- funded by the Scottish Government, is aiming to ensure that these young people will be able to get hold of books in alternative formats that they can access.” For further information go to www.booksforallscotland.org.uk Chiswick Book Festival supports reading charities The first Chiswick Book Festival has been hailed as "an astounding success" raising generous funds for three charities related to books and reading: RNIB's Talking Book Service (including books for blind and partially sighted children), InterAct Reading Service, which provides a reading service for stroke patients in hospital, and The Letterbox Club, which works with local authorities to send book parcels to vulnerable children aged 7 to 11. It is great to see recognition for these invaluable charities and the support gained from this event.

It was a cooperation between different specialised libraries and organisation from Flanders (Belgium) and the Netherlands. The conference highlighted the importance of delivering library services for print-disabled people and demonstrated how to improve publishing and library services through co-operation and partnership. The programme included papers on the Global Library Initiative for Print-Disabled Persons, along with publishing models related to inclusive publishing and production of adaptive content. There was also a discussion on how users themselves can participate and contribute to create better inclusive services.

It is only $3 to buy and works with any iPhone, but the close-focusing 3GS gives the best results. The app can be downloaded from iTunes or on your iPhone with a wireless signal.
  14. 14. National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC) National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAC) is a US electronic file repository that makes files available for the production of core print instructional materials in specialised formats. NIMAC receives source files in NIMAS format from textbook publishers, and makes these files available for download to authorized users in the United States through an online database. Once downloaded, files can be used to create a variety of specialised formats, such as braille, audio, or digital text, on behalf of qualifying blind, visually- impaired or print-disabled students in elementary or secondary schools. NIMAC provides a mechanism for getting files created by publishers into schools as quickly as possible. For full details of NIMAC please go to www.nimac.us Bookshare Bookshare has recently established partnerships with prestigious university presses in order to add titles to the Bookshare library. The University of Chicago Press, the University of California Press and New York University Press have joined the Bookshare Publisher Partner Program to provide digital books for Bookshare's accessible online library for people with print disabilities. They have all agreed to provide digital book files that will contribute thousands of new scholarly works to the collection. Please go to http://www.bookshare.org/ for further information. New e-reader software launched in US for print impaired readers. New e-book reading software has been announced which will develop access to e-books for print impaired people.

In November the WIPO Stakeholder Platform submitted two funding proposals to a WIPO donor conference. One proposal, submitted by a Technology Working Group co-chaired by Alicia Wise from PLS and George Kerscher from DAISY, seeks funds to create guidelines to enable publishers to create more accessible publications. This project will also integrate ONIX into the Daisy standards, and enhance an open source format conversion tool for use by publishers throughout the world. The second proposal, submitted by a Trusted Intermediaries Working Group, seeks funds to pilot a scheme for the licensed exchange of accessible materials by international agencies supporting people with print disabilities. This project would work closely with ongoing work of the Daisy-IFLA project to create an accessible Global Library. In December WIPO's Copyright Committee will receive an update on this work. It will also examine the proposal by Brazil, Ecuador and Paraguay for a treaty on copyright exceptions for access to published works for print disabled persons. We have also just learned that WIPO will provide over 300,000 Euros to support this project over 3 years! Helpful Information Accessibility 2.0 Conference Article contributed by Natasha Mellins-Cohen, Editorial Office Director at BioMed Central The Accessibility 2.0 conference was organised by AbilityNet (www.abilitynet.org.uk), a UK charity dedicated to helping disabled people use computers, and the internet, by adapting the technology available to them.
  16. 16. The conference was held in London on 22 September 2009 and was only the second such event and was a showcase for IT accessibility of all kinds. The conference explored Web 2.0 functionality and how accessible it actually is. For example, YouTube, a site used as a space to market authors and books, simply isn’t accessible: it has no keyboard access, and is invisible to screen readers. If you want a substitute, check out EasyYouTube, an accessible alternative to YouTube which came out of last year’s Accessibility conference. So, what can publishers do to make websites more accessible? • Making sure that all images have alternative text, so that screen readers can recognise them. • Allowing text to be resized for users who prefer large (or small) fonts • Using an appropriate typeface – serif fonts, or those which are smaller than average, are not suitable for reading on screen. • Giving people alternatives to CAPTCHA which is a piece of software people use to create distorted text images on their sites, where they will ask you to type in what you can see before you can submit your comment. This verifies that you are a human and not a machine (http://www.captcha.net/) There are alternatives, such as non-text image recognition and audio versions of CAPTCHA that are more accessible than the traditional text version. • Making sure that in the redesign of sites there is compliance with accessibility guidelines. Accessibility 2.0 highlighted guidelines including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG/), and the new British Standard, BS8878 (http://www.bsigroup.com/en/Standards-and-Publications/How-we-can- help-you/Consumers/Accessibilty-day/BS-8878-form/Thank-you/),which is based on WCAG. These guidelines and others like WAI and W3C are designed to help web developers ensure that their work is accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities, from blindness to restricted movement and everything in between. They are lengthy, but there are tools available to help developers test their designs for accessibility issues. The message from the conference is the emphasis on making sites accessible. To treat accessibility as an added extra or, worse, as someone else’s problem, means excluding users from sites. And that’s never a good thing.
  17. 17. Dates for your diary Access to e-books Seminar - London Book Fair 2010 The success of last year’s session has inspired us to again feature accessibility issues at the London Book Fair 2010.
