April: Accessible images series

Registration for Next DIAGRAM Webinar Now Open
In the 4th webinar in our 2012-2013 series, we turn to the practical matter of how to integrate accessible images into ebooks and digital talking books (DTBs). If you are involved in the production of ebooks, you won’t want to miss this overview of how to make sure the books you create are both accessible and discoverable. Bryan Gould and Geoff Freed of the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) at WGBH will present “Best Practices for Authoring Accessible Images” on Thursday April 25 at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time, 12:30 p.m. Eastern. Click here to register for this special 90-minute session.

Included in the free seminar will be brief demonstrations of the following authoring tools:
  • TOBI
  • Dolphin EasyProducer
  • OpenOffice Writer
  • Word
  • Adobe Acrobat
  • Adobe InDesign
  • iBooks Author
We’ll also demonstrate what a described image looks like, and sounds like, when integrated into an accessible e-book or DTB.
DIAGRAM webinars are free and open to anyone. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone who may be interested in participating.
