Accessible ePUB3

The ePUB3 format represents a significant leap forward in the production of accessible eBooks. Amnet addresses the specific accessibility requirements that need attention and are beyond standard publishing workflows. Some of the services provided are generation of accessible metadata, ensuring logical reading order, semantic structuring, tagging tables, and much more.

Accessible PDF/Word/PPT

The accessible versions of PDF, Word, and PPT documents allow users to navigate and interpret the appropriate sequence of text in the document and recognize tables, formulas, line art, and images. Some of the features include enabling complete navigation, identifying decorative images, writing alternative text descriptions, examining color contrast and font size, and enabling screen readers to read aloud.

Alternative Text Descriptions

Adding alternative text descriptions to nontext content is an important guideline within WCAG 2.0. Amnet provides text alternatives for any nontext content so that it can be changed into other formats, such as Braille, Speech, Symbols, and Simpler Language.

MathML

MathML makes mathematical equations accessible to everyone by eliminating the ambiguity of a verbal description of a picture. We follow the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) guidelines for MathML, which is the best approach in most cases for encoding math content.

Subtitles and Closed Captions

Subtitles are the written form of dialogue in videos. They are intended for listeners who are able to hear but prefer to have dialogue narration displayed. Closed captions are an extension of subtitles and usually contain descriptions of important nondialogue audio. Closed captions are specifically intended for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Transcription/Audio Sync

Our services include transcription of audio, proofreading the transcribed text against the spoken audio, and syncing of audio and transcribed text. Amnet has an exclusive proprietary platform that is compatible with the audio synchronization feature.

Podcast Transcription

We can help with the following services for podcast - transcripts of content along with captions that plays in sync with the podcast for hearing impaired audiences, audio descriptions of visual information for visually impaired audiences, and translation services to subtitle your videos in a variety of languages.

Accessibility Testing

Accessibility testing is a subset of usability testing and is performed to ensure that the application being tested is usable by people with disabilities, including those with hearing loss, low vision, or color blindness; the elderly; and other disadvantaged groups.

Accessibility testing includes accessibility full check, read aloud using Acrobat Reader, NVDA, JAWS, section 508 and WCAG compliance; screen reader compatibility with NVDA, JAWS, and VoiceOver on target platforms and devices; IDPF accessibility guidelines and WCAG compliance; and PAC accessibility checker.

Accessibility Metadata

The inclusion of accessibility metadata facilitates informed decisions about the usability of an EPUB publication. Consumers can review the qualities of the content and decide whether a publication is appropriate for their needs, regardless of whether it meets the standard requirements for accessibility. The accessibility metadata contains information such as access mode, accessibility features, accessibility hazards, accessibility controls, and accessibility application program interface.

Website Remediation

Amnet takes a four-tiered approach to perform a website audit and arrive at a customized remediation plan.
