Editors NSW: Editing for accessibility

Editors NSW is running a meeting on editing for accessibility with freelance editor Julie Ganner.

The presentation will discuss:

  • the term ‘print disability’ and some of the ways in which readers with a print disability access and experience print materials
  • the challenges faced by disability support organisations
  • the work being done by the Australian Inclusive Publishing Initiative (AIPI) to encourage and support the creation of books that are ‘inclusive by design’
  • the role of authors and editors in this process, including checking that content is appropriate (‘perceivable’) and using elements such as cross-references, illustrative material and alternative text in a way that is meaningful to all readers, irrespective of how they access the text.
