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.
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 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.
