Ebook Central is designed for patrons with accessibility needs, particularly the blind and visually impaired. We are:
- Targeting AA conformance level to W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) for features and functions
- Certifying for use with major screen readers (JAWS and VoiceOver)
- Formatting book content to be readable online and offline
- Working with third-party specialists in accessibility
Turning on Accessibility Mode: Patrons using a screen reader may turn on accessibility mode themselves – no librarian or tech support needed! For patrons who don’t use a screen reader but have accessibility needs, accessibility mode can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
