Have you ever wondered what it’s like when a screen reader reads one of your ebooks or documents? Or do you know someone who would benefit from a demonstration of it?
You probably know that if you don’t enter all the correct details, a book can sound like gobbledegook,
Pam Schindler, former librarian at the University of Queensland, who recently wrote an article for the APA News, has provided a video presentation summarising advice on ebook accessibility and educational content platforms for Australian publishers. (Thanks go to the University of Queensland for their technical support.)
The video is an excellent demonstration of what a user experiences when the text to speech program is not given sufficient accessible information embedded in the ebook.
We encourage all of our members to pass this video onto contacts who may benefit from it.
