Free Webinar: European Accessibility Act—Considerations for the Publishing Industry and Benefits to Consumers Globally
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.
