Free Webinar: Describing Images in Publications—Guidance, Best Practices and the Promise of Technology
The DAISY Consortium has announced the launch of a series of free weekly webinars on accessible publishing and reading in response to the multiple challenges being faced by conferences around the world due to Coronavirus, as well as feedback from the wider DAISY community expressing interest in online training resources.
Authoring quality image descriptions are essential for accessibility. But the actual process of authoring an alternate description can be quite tricky, especially for complex content, graphically rich publications and vast back catalogues which need to be updated.
This webinar will:
- discuss best practices for authoring image descriptions for publications.
- hear from a range of publishers how they are tackling the challenge for new and backlist titles.
- examine what AI and image recognition can currently offer and what the future might bring.
