Reading Systems

Welcome to this section of this website which we are busy working on to bring you the latest news on accessible reading systems.

It is important that individuals and organizations can choose the reading systems that offer the accessibility features they need. These features will vary between individuals, but include support for a screen reader, ability to change the visual presentation of the contents, read aloud feature, feature to enlarge images and so on.The DAISY Consortium partners with other industry organizations to test reading systems for EPUB 3 conformance and accessibility.

See the EPUBTest project pages for detailed information on our work with reading systems. You may also wish to look at the latest Reading Systems Testing update and information available on Inclusive Publishing, our news and information hub for publishers, developers and educators.
